HOW TO do a 3" BMW Projector Retrofit

Here is my how to guide on doing a projector retofit using components from 05' BMW 5 series headlights. This is a how to guide not the exact science. I hope this guide helps out all the members that have been itching to do this mod!

Enjoy and do at your own risk

I was lucky. I got he set with broken front lenses with no damage to the projectors, halos or shrouds for $85 Shipped from ebay.
Keep an eye out for good deals on ebay. Sometimes you can find all the parts you need in seperate auctions...Dont spend more than 400$ on all of the parts. I have done 5 of these retrofits and that's the average amount i spent on all of the parts.
