Not sure south of the boarder, for your 328i without xenon, do you have a projector head light assembly or halogen? I just spend $35 on a H7R hid kit, the R type should reduce glare on halogen headlights. Will see how they will work when they came here. But it's much cheaper than the few hundred you guys talking about here.

I called the Ft.L bmw parts dept. yesterday. Spoke with one of the higher ups, they did a search for me but said that the "kit" is not out yet. Basically the headlights are available but not all the pieces to convert from halogen i.e modules and other components directly related to the xenons that we would need for the conversion.

let us know what you hear tomorrow.
