Features and Benefits of BMW E46 Headlights

There is stature and prestige that comes with a purchase of a BMW car. Its owner is foreseen to follow suit with the brand’s tradition of excellence when getting involved with the idea of customizing car parts, either for style, comfort, or performance. While they may appear to be luxurious and vain accessories, these custom parts never fall short when it comes to function. In combining the best of both worlds, the BMW E46 headlights is likely to be in the top percentile of the aftermarket industry.

What distinguishes BMW E46 headlights is the low beam capability. This system comes as custom part kits, which, when installed, will likely change the appearance of the lamps and their mirrors. The low beam system provides good forward and lateral visibility without producing blinding glare at those on the other side of the road. This is because of the headlight’s asymmetrical beam shape.

Sometimes, BMW E46 headlights are manufactured in smaller designs because they make use of high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs and ballasts. Having them in dimensions less than the standard measurements also help in minimizing glare. Majority of the HID projector headlights use xenon gas to produce bright bluish light. That they are costly doesn’t really matter; HID headlights a more durable and more energy-efficient.

Should drivers insist on having headlights with symmetrical high beams for a longer front visibility, they may opt for BMW E46 headlights with solenoid pivot. This part of the headlight system allows them to switch from a low beam to a high beam. This is especially helpful in traversing dark highways alone.
