    E90 headlights question

    Hey guys, first post. It looks like I'm in the right place.

    I have a 2006 E90 (325xi) and I need new headlights. Driver side has "lazy eye", but my mechanic can't get access to the headlight to correct it with his tool; it's like he's locked out of what I would imagine would be the AHL unit. On the passenger side, the halo rings went out, so it looks like I need a set.

    So I found:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Magneti-Mar...oAAOSwz71ZSMtR

    But I can never find a set of these. Only the driver side. I did find an OEM pair on Amazon for like $1500, so I might just get those, although I'm looking for cheaper, obvs.

    How do those Euro style clear blinker reflector Magneti Marellis look? I've never seen how they look on a car, and my car is black. I'm wondering if they'd look good.

    My other question is, when I buy the headlights, do they usually come with the AHL unit, ballasts and bulbs/HIDs? I'm pretty sure I can use my current ballast (I'm not sure I have ballasts actually, Idk. I thought ballasts were for cars that didn't originally have HIDs), etc., but these headlights are so expensive and I know one AHL unit is bad. I have no idea what I'm getting into, and don't want to end up with lots of missing pieces. Not to mention my HID colors don't match - one is kinda purplish, the other is kinda yellow.

    A lot of information, I know. But thanks for any help!
