i just installed my ellipsoids/xenon hid kit into my 96 ///M3, which i purchased from eric at spp.com and i couldn't be happier. what a significant difference from the stock lights. i had eric install the hid onto the ellipsoid assemblies so it was pretty much plug and play. i followed the tech instructions from bavauto.com step for step like eric suggested which made the install real easy. i also changed the fuses to 15 amp ones. if anyone decides to get this light kit from eric and elect to have him install the hid's onto your ellipsoids, ask for "bob's setup". he'll know what you're talking about. the only "challenge" i have now, as well as many of you who already have this set up, is the obc "low beam failure" message that comes on when you turn on the lights. mine will come on for about 10 seconds then shut off while the lights are still on. the message will reappear again after the car is shut off which is normal for all bmw's. i consider this a small price to pay for a huge difference in light quality....i installed the so-called xenon hid super whites into my wife's 325i before i did my conversion to ellipsoids/hid and those lights on the 325i made my stock ///M3 lights look like crap. now, it's just the opposite. my ///M lights are kickin!!!
