: Jeff,

: i've looked at a couple of pics on your site and i've noticed your outside headlights (hi beams ?) have clear lenses and you can see that inner darker bulb (probably the lens for the hi beam).

: my 93 535i doesn't have them - i mean the headlight lenses/glass is not clear. Can anyone tell me whether this is the normal spec or not ?

: thx,

Your '93 doesn't have the Ellipsoid low beams like mine. They changed them to the regular lights in (I think) 1992 and then back again to Ellipsoid for 1994-5. Haven't heard any good reason why yet. The Ellipsoid lights have a narrow, focused beam and are great lights but they are much more expensive to replace.
