looks like me and justinnum1 are the only ones with halogens. they really aren't that bad, at an angle they look like angel eyes lol. i'm hoping someone makes a kit soon, i just want the rings, don't care for the xenons.

I didn't get xenons either in my 328i. I have them in my M3, but just didnt see the reason to pay for them in the 328i. No regrets. I do agree that if you wanted Angels or Xenons, ordering them from BMW during purchase will most likely be the least expensive way. Good quality retrofits will always be more expensive.

I also have halogens, couldn't justify the cost and to me they look just fine

I agree, if you don't care about the rings and feel it's ok also without xenons, it's absolutely fine, it's a personal choice of course.
Myself, i can't imagine a new bmw without them, also i don't want to drive with halogens in the night ever again as the visiblity is so much better with xenons - if you're not driving in the city that is...

I had the same problem and bought a 2012 328i sport line, but it did not have the premium package. What brand do you suggest buying to get the lights retrofitted and how fast could you get them set up?

You buy an expensive car and want to go for aftermarket rubbish. I see no sense in this.

Xenons are only 2.5% the cost of the car. It's tantamount to buying a handmade suit and then wearing trainers with it. How shoddy is that?

I made this mistake with my Golf GTI and I learnt my lesson. Never again. Just tick the box and light up your life.
