This BMW 3 E46 retrofit kit contains everything you need to swap your old, blacked-out single-xenon (low-beam xenon only) projectors for powerful new bi-xenon (both low- and high-beam xenon) projectors. Using the exact same mounting points, it makes retrofitting quick and easy. And, most importantly, it will take your 3 to the next level – just check out the test pictures! This is way beyond what the majority of OEM projectors can achieve.

The Mini D2S 3.0 is an incredibly bright bi-xenon projector, enabling you to use D2S OEM bulbs, including the most powerful options from Osram and Philips. You will literally outshine the competition. With available colour temperatures ranging from 4,300K to 6,000K, the crystal-clear 3.0-inch lens throws a wide low beam with a bright hotspot and sharp cutoff. As for the high beam? It’s like the sun.

Such a light output would not be possible without efficient ballasts. If you’re happy with the ballasts that you’ve already got, simply leave them in place. Alternatively, add a set of our Aharon digital 35W ballasts to your order. The Aharon ballast has – as opposed to many other aftermarket units – been tested to generate a full 35W. It comes in a rugged and extremely compact housing perfect for retrofitting, and its in-wire starter warms xenon bulbs in as little as five seconds. The Aharon ballast is also Canbus-proof, so you won’t get any bulb failure readings on your display, and the original beam level system will not require any adjustments. It’s the perfect ballast to complement the included BMW 3 E46 wire harness, which connects directly to the original wiring. A high beam splitter is also included, making for easy integration of the bi-xenon mechanism. Power supply is strong, steady and reliable.

Lastly, this kit provides every single part that you will need for retrofitting. In order to keep the price low, we have however assumed that you will keep your existing xenon bulbs. Depending on how old those are, you may want to also order a new set of bulbs to get the most out of your retrofitted system. Xenon bulbs do lose up to 70% of their maximum brightness over time.

This complete BMW 3 E46 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

Should you have any questions prior to purchase, please check out our FAQ page or refer to the chat box below.

We look forward to brightening your day (not to mention your night)!

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 headlight. Simply remove the existing projector through the bulb access port at the rear and replace it with your upgraded projector. Done.

Super helles Licht

Sehr gute Abwicklung, gutes Produkt, vielen Dank für die schnelle Hilfe. Die Scheinwerfer leuchten wieder perfekt. Danke

Qualität ist sehr gut.
Beschreibung etwas lückenhaft.
Gibt jedoch Video im Youtube.
Schablonen sind nicht gut, zu weiche Folie, funktioniert aber.
Im Gesamten eine TOP Investition die ich jedem empfehlen kann.

It were very easy to use product. Recomendded items parts!!!! 100% quality

After learning how to install following the excellent video the second headlight unit took about 1 hour to complete. Xenon illumination restored to new. Had to wire solenoid to existing NA plug wire - again an easy to complete process. Very satisfied with the restored headlights and will be recommending to friends.

Es justo lo que necesitaba mi e46, por las noches iba a oscuras o con los faros antiniebla ahora es de día!

Thanks to retfofit.com i manage to save my crappy zkw oem headlights.
After failing the eu controll i bought a pair of replacement bi xenon. The mounting vent flawless. The lightoutput compare to the original one is amazing.
Although the original one gave up litteraly no light at all.
Wish the mount would fit the existing template so there was no drilling involved.
And the clips on the front pice could fit in a clip slot instead of glue it.
Other than that it works great

Einwandfreie Beschreibung und super schneller Versand.

everything is fine except for one thing. As i understood it happened to many customers. I've got a new lens and a shroud. but in order to mount shroud on lens i have to glue it somehow, becouse the clippers dont fit directly . Didnt see that in DIY video. So that kinda problem for me, but right now im looking for heat ressistant glue. The only thing im lacking is time.
