order the euro-spec xenons from BMW....if I remember correctly they are about $1200 a piece, plus they ship from europe so shipping charges apply as well.

You can buy the OEM European headlight housings without the amber from any dealer, but it'll cost a lot.. like a grand..

There's also a couple other options such as body painted headlight reflector covers:

Or Vitex Ambergone vinyl overlays:

Yeah I think the euro-xenons are what I was looking for but I am not gonna spend that to get rid of a piece of orange. The Ambergone doesn't seem to make much of a difference and the covers don't look that good, maybe Ambergone in "clear" or whatever will work.

Didn't someone post the part numbers to silver turn signal bulbs he got from a BMW dealer. I thought I saw that last week. The bulbs were kind of pricey at $22 each. But they look silver when they are off. Yellow when they are on.

IF I remember right... the OP got the part numbers from the e90 group.

I've bought chrome plated amber bulbs for other cars and work nicely haven't yet researched them for E82 but sounds like there was a recent post about it. Totally legal, relatively cheap and looks good.

The bulbs I remember seeing had a module(large square black plug socket) at the base of the bulb. They were basically just silver bulbs... but came from BMW in a BMW box. I think the OP was from the UK. ???

Here you go, N54galore: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=441722
I don't see why anyone would lie about having an m3 if they had a nice car to begin with. That's like calling your base Carrera a 911 turbo.
On topic: How much of the amber color in the headlight is accounted for by the bulb itself? I don't think I've seen pics of a 1 with these chrome plated bulbs vs. stock.

edit: "Darth Maul" m3 Mystery solved. How lame. http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=441947
