This BMW 3 E46 compact retrofit kit contains everything you need to convert your halogen setup into powerful Bi-LED projector headlights. Custom-made to fit your existing headlights and including all the correct wiring and a selection of OEM-style shrouds, it makes retrofitting quick and easy. And, most importantly, it will take your 3 series to the next level – just check out the test pictures! This is way beyond what the majority of OEM projectors can achieve.
The Aharon AtomLED X2 is used in this kit to ensure you get a powerful output with a good pattern in a compact size projector that fits your headlight. The projector has been designed around LED and has a built-in LED chip. This guarantees a much better output and pattern than putting a LED bulb in a HID Xenon projector like the Mini H1. The LED technology makes the installation quite easy because there are no large ballasts. also, the LED doesn't have a start-up time like with HID Xenon. It also has a crystal clear lens and a modern 6000k light color.
Lastly, this kit provides every single part that you will need for retrofitting and upgrading your headlight – including your selection of stylish and durable shrouds. We offer all the best shrouds compatible with your vehicle you can pick any you like from the drop-down menu (with larger shrouds, some trimming might be needed).
This complete BMW 3 E46 compact retrofit kit is inspected by our internal quality control prior to shipping and comes with a solid 2-year warranty. It also includes highly rated technical support from your lighting experts at Retrofitlab.com

This is an easy retrofit that even complete novices can do, but those with more skills and experience will be quicker. Discounting removal and replacement of the headlights, you could expect the job to take anything from less than one to two hours.
You do not even have to open the BMW 3 E46 compact headlight. Simply remove the existing projector through the bulb access port at the rear and replace it with your upgraded projector. Done.

The product images shown are for illustration purposes only and may not be an exact representation of the product. Actual products may vary due to changes in manufacturing/product enhancements.
The product/kit pictures can differ from what you have received/will receive because we use generic pictures for the kits. Because with all the different options/product changes etc. it's nearly impossible for us to take pictures for all the kits we have and with all the different options. For example, butyl sealant can be shown in the picture, but with headlights that are originally sealed with butyl, it won't be in the kit.
This complete kit has been especially developed to enable retrofitting at home, saving you the cost of installation. However, should you prefer to have a professional carry out the retrofit, you can simply mail your headlights to the nearest participating workshop. They will then perform the retrofit and return the upgraded headlights to you, ready for use.
Please note that, for professional retrofits, you should order your Retrofitlab kit or parts directly from the workshop in question (it saves you money on shipping).
