HID Kit for 328i

Alright guys just got myself a brand new BMW 328 two days ago and I have the stock headlights and regular fog lights. I am looking to put HIDs in the projector so it looks good. I did this for my last car (honda) and it was done very easily. I talked to a couple people and they gave me various answers. 1) can't do it on the new car 2) tricky but can fry your 3) yes it can be done.

I just got the car and i am currently leasing it, I am not looking forward to screwing up my car already. I want the cleanest and safest way even if it cost more. Maybe you guys know more about it? Has anyone does this? what kit did you get? where did you get it from? how much did it cost + install.

Thanks guys
-Sean

the F30 does not have projectors. you would need the housing, bulbs, ballasts, programming, and wiring. about $1110 to convert and $350 for an HID kit.

Does your white HID 6000 is an exact match of the stock headlight xenons?

Nothing will match 100 percent to bmw stuff.

Not for an HID kit, shop around and done use ebay as a reference.

You want quality? you drive a BMW... They make cheap hid kits and you will run in to flickering, error on dash, melted housing..
