My 328i has them, and I have to say: get them! You'll regret not getting them.

Honestly, the trend is towards Xenons on "nicer" cars. They'll be pretty much standard in a couple of years, so your resale value will be way higher if you get them.

Also, the E46 Xenons are way more subtle than, say, the 7 series, or the Audi A6/Mercedes SL, etc. ("first generation") Xenons. The E46 Xenons have a color-correcting lens, which makes them much less blue than the first-generation Xenons. The light truly is much whiter on the E46. This whole "you'll blind on-coming traffic" bit is a crock with the new Xenons. At $400 or so, they're one of the best options you'll get on your E46.
