We Did A Bi-LED Projector Retrofit On A BMW E36

When it comes to upgrading headlights on your BMW E36 there are a few options out there but a headlight retrofit surpasses them all.

Which Retrofit Package?

What does it come with?


We offer 3 different retrofit packages. Standard, Pro and elite. The Pro Package is our most popular package which features the latest Bi-LED projector from Morimoto. This thing is brighter than most HID projector set ups on the market. Since it is a Bi-LED projector it is capable of both low beam and high beam functionality.

What Makes This Better?

What are the facts?


Since you have an older vehicle like an E36 this setup is perfect. It draws less power than a standard bulb consuming only 30 watts and is 2.5 times brighter than an Ellipsoid headlight with HIDs installed. Not to mention these headlights look practically OEM.

Now these are made by taking your current or brand new Ellipsoids and removing the original projectors. We then install the Bi-LED projectors and wire them inside of the headlight housing which leaves the back of the headlight clean and makes this practically plug and play.

The headlights are then reassembled, sealed and installed back on to the vehicle. To complete the retrofit the headlights are plugged in and aimed to the proper height to ensure maximum visibility of the road.

How Do These Headlights Work?

Time to light up the road


Now the way these headlights work is the projector will be the low beam and high beam. The original high beam bowl will also turn on giving you a total of 4 high beams. You can also change the high beam bulb into a more white colored bulb to match the LED projector or install an LED bulb.

If you don’t want 4 high beams then you can leave the original high beam off and leave everything up to the Bi-LED projector.

The Pro package headlight retrofit can also be customized even further by adding additional add ons such as demon eyes, paint, angel eyes and more.
