: : I was driving home one day on US 75N (Dallas) and saw a car came up with rather bright headlights (no other cars around had the same degree of brightness). It passed me and it was an E46. The other night, a car came from behind (1/2 mile) and I knew it was the same E46. I could not tell that the lights were xenon or just regular. My window was tinted and I was doing about 75mph.

: : Anyway, had anyone noticed how bright are those E46 headlights?

: E46 headlights(xenon) are sure bright but not as much as audi's or porsche's(and they have more blue tone, which is awesome.. you can instantly recognize that it is a xenon) I wish BMWs had more blue tone in their xenons like audi's.

thats true.. but I noticed one thing that is better about BMW Xenon's then Audi Xenons.. is that they are more spred then the Audi's .. Also because the Xenons's on the BMW auto focus it gets a better view and a less broken light.. I noticed that my Dad A6 that there is a broken line in the middle. the Bimmer is somuch more clear.


323Ci with Xenon
