Chineese headlight BMW E46 "BRAND NEW"
Horror!!! Regulators of height of luminescence of distant and near light
does not work in any headlight.
Absolute absence of impermeability (hermetic) of headlight. I think water
will get in into a
headlight from a hood even during a rain, not speaking already about
washing of car.
The turn signals lamp does not reach to the right headlight, between them
On chromic details insice very much scratches and spots,
TRS Tech: BMW E46 Bi-xenon Projector Headlight Retrofit with Morimoto Mini 6.0
We demonstrate the use of our Bi-xenon Mini H1 Stage III kit on a BMW E46.
Very little modification is needed to perform the install. Only a little
bit of trimming to the interior of the bulb holder and a small hole needed
to be drilled in the stock reflector.
Performance and looks are vastly improved compared to stock with this setup
We used our Morimoto Mini H1 6.0 Bi-xenon projectors, E46-R shrouds, 9006
Standalone Canbus harnesses, high beam splitters, the Morimoto 3Five AMP
ballasts, and Morimoto 3Five H1 bulbs.

My BMW e46 coupe with Umnitza predator chromium DDE angel eyes. Just after
I build them in the original headlights.
You can't see the circular light on the video from a distance, but in real
you can see it perfectly also from far away, it is because of my bad
digital camera. The rings are also very good vissible during day time.

How To Recharge Your BMW 3 Series AC System BMW E46 1998 - 2006
Recharging The A/c System
CAUTION: The high side of the A/C system is under considerable pressure. If
a can of refrigerant is connected to the high side service fitting, it may
explode! The system must therefore be recharged by using the low side
service fitting only. If you are not sure which fittings are which, do not
attempt to recharge your air conditioner yourself. Wear eye protection and
avoid direct contact with the refrigerant as it can cause frostbite on bare
The basic recharging procedure goes as follows:
1. Identify the low side service fitting.
2. Determine the type of refrigerant required by the system. On most 1993
and older vehicles, this would be R12. On most 1994 and newer vehicles, it
would be R134a.
CAUTION: R12 and R134a refrigerants are incompatible and must not be
intermixed. Use the type of refrigerant required for your A/C system only.
On most 1993 and newer vehicles, there's an identification decal or sticker
that tells what kind of refrigerant is required. Also, the size and design
of R134a and R12 service fittings are different to avoid
3. Connect a can of refrigerant to a gauge set or recharging hose and valve
set. Follow the equipment supplier's directions for making the connections.
4. Open the valve momentarily on the gauge set or hose to blow all air out
of the line (this is necessary to keep from introducing air and moisture
into your A/C system).
5. Connect the gauge set or hose to the low side A/C service fitting on the
vehicle. This is usually located near the receiver/drier or accumulator, or
suction side of the compressor.
6. CAUTION: Make sure the can of refrigerant is held in the upright
position so only vapor enters the line. Do not tip the can sideways or
upside down as doing so will allow liquid to enter the low pressure side of
the A/C system (This may cause damage to the A/C compressor). Also, never
heat the can to make it empty faster as doing so may cause the can to
7. Start the engine and turn the A/C system on high. The compressor should
be engaged or cycling on and off (it may be necessary to jump the
compressor clutch directly to the battery if the system is extremely low on
refrigerant to keep it engaged). Compressor suction will pull refrigerant
vapor into the system and slowly empty the can. This can take up to 10
minutes or more, so don't be anxious.
8. When the can is empty, disconnect the charging hose from the service
fitting. Use care when disconnecting the "empty" can from the gauge set or
charging hose as it may contain some residual refrigerant.
9. Add additional cans of refrigerant as needed until the system is
CAUTION: The most common mistake made by do-it-yourselfers is overcharging.
Too much refrigerant can reduce cooling efficiency just the same as too
little refrigerant. To work properly, the A/C system needs just the right
amount. Always refer to the system capacity specs in a shop manual or other
source to determine how much refrigerant is required. System capacities are
specified in ounces. One can of refrigerant equals about 14 oz. Usually
three to four cans is enough to fully recharge a typical passenger car A/C
system that was empty. If the system is low, one or two cans of refrigerant
are usually all that's required.
