    Do they sell E36 projector headlights with ...

    Anyone know if they sell E36 projector headlights with angel eyes that glow in yellow/orange (i.e. OEM style)? ...

    I'm trying to avoid the overly bright white/blue colors for my white M3...

    TIA

    IMO angel eyes look out of place on the E36

    and are played out. The OE City lights in the Euro projectors look much better and classy. To each his own though. Try Umnitza.com. You can put basically any color AE in you want. You are probably looking at 4300K color.

    Re: IMO angel eyes look out of place on the E36

    yeah, i'v been debating on whether or not to simply go with the Euro projectors. i really don't like the AE look on my white M3... it looks "forced" and out of place...

    sweet looking car you have. did you wire your Euros for DRLs (i.. city lights)?

    Re: City Lights

    Thanks for the compliment. I wired up the city lights to the parking lights. If I had to do it again, I would have just wired them up to a 12v switched spot so they would turn on when I start the car. Either way. You can't go wrong with some ZKWs and wire up the city lights. It will look nice on your Alpine, which is secretly my second favorite color.

    Good luck,

    WIZ

    Where can I find a 12v switched spot? ... Would it be in my Bentley manual?

    City lights are in the Euros by default

    You need the 5w bulb that goes in the high beams . ZKWs come with these...not sure about the others. You just need to find a place to tap the source power feed. The US headlight wire harness does not account for the city lights which is why the power source need to come from the parking lights or some other source.

    Thanks! The color is Calypso. It was not a standard color on the M3, but it was avaliable on the E36 3-series. Most examples look terrible now. It is one of those colors that doesn't look very nice if it is not kept up.

    I can't pull up Stern's email, do you have it so I can put that set of candles on my 97M3/4. Yours looks sweet!
    Thanks,

    an alternative

    IMHO the angel eyes are lame on cars that did not come with them.
    I have the H7 conversions for my E36 and they are OEM color, and at only 65 watts they rival the illumination of the HIDs on my E92
    The H7 conversions look stock when not on. They are a rather snug fit because they project further rearward. I got mie from Daniel Stern Lighting.
