Are These Good Headlights?

My adaptive error and condensation issues have been an issue recently. My low beams are literally cross-eyed and I'm not sure if that can be corrected. I'm guessing that I can find a way to open my headlights, clean them, dry them out, reseal them, and take out the amber or just sell them for a project to someone. I just saw these on eBay and felt like they looked great, but was wondering why they look like they have 2 low beam lenses instead of the stock cap that is usually over the inner lens. Seems like they are non-leveling, which is fine with me. Any thoughts on these as a replacement to OEM xenons?

The lights in your ebay link are NOT, AHL headlights. Meaning the outter lens doesn't swivel at all. Nor do they have the driving "corning lamps" that illuminate when you turn or have your turn signal on(in the inner lens).

Try searching on ebay.de for:

BMW 1er E87 E81 E82 E88 Scheinwerfer Bi-Xenon or better yet by BMW part number(s).

You could also order them from Scheiderman.com

You are looking at about $1,500 for two lights. You might also consider going thru your insurance company as a comp claim. Just say a rock must have hit your lights and caused water to ingress. They will cover it.
