• New E92 aftermarket headlight option - "180" from Martino Auto Concepts

      There have not been too many aftermarket options for E92 headlights. Most offerings consisted of just changing the bulbs to alter the color of the angel eyes. OSS was really the only option to change the housing and look of the angel eyes themselves, until now. MAC offers several packages to choose from including just changing to the Orb style LED rings, Euro projector lenses, carbon bezels, or to LCI style turn signals. These do not come cheap however as the full package will run $3000, ouch. Options and pricing below.


      These headlight modifications are only available for:

      2007-2010 328/335 Coupes
      2008-2012 M3 Coupe, Sedan & Convertible

      MSRP Pricing
      Parts without install

      Orb LED Rings: $300.00

      - Newly developed LED rings featuring intensely bright LEDs enclosed with a clear tubing using BMW's "CELIS" design to evenly distribute the light around the entire loop. These rings are precisely designed to fit the projector shrouds extremely flush like OEM. From a distance the rings appear to be solid, from up close you can notice the individual LED's. The inner (smaller) ring features 66 super bright SMD LED's, while the outer (larger) ring features 78 super bright SMD LED's, a total of 144 LED's per headlight. Easily visible and distinguished even in direct sunlight.

      What the Orb LED rings offer that other full replacement LED rings on the market don't:

      Solid outer ring while still retaining a larger diameter than the inner ring
      Evenly spaced LED
      OEM placement, the inner ring is replaced directly with the factory ring, while the outer ring sits snug and flows within the lines of the headlight bezel
      PURE White color, no hue of blue or yellow, portraying the current and future of the LED technology in OEM applications.

      The Orb LED rings are not a directly replacement but DO NOT require any cutting or melting to the headlights, simply put in place and secure with small dabs of glue supplied with the kit. EASILY reversible to factory AE rings.

      Clear Euro Projector Xenon Lenses: $75.00

      OEM xenon projector lenses use fresnel lenses, they are normally semi-frosted, or have small lines embedded into the glass, along with a big bulged line across it. This is made to dim the beam and soften the output of your projectors for US DOT standards so you're not getting the full performance out of your projectors as you should. These replacement lenses sharpen the output, and clarity for best light distribution. For even better results, some modification to the cut off shield (the high-beam flap) is required.

      Carbon Fiber Headlight Bezels (Available in 1x1 or 2x2 twill weave)

      - Gloss: $450
      - Matte: $500

      OEM wrapped bezels for 100% fit and finish, using real carbon fiber sheets and UV/Heat resistant resin to produce OEM like finish. Must be pre-ordered because time to fabricate is 2 weeks.
      CORE EXCHANGE ONLY, a refundable deposit of $300 must be paid with the price of the selected CF finish, once your OEM cores are mailed back to us, we will refund your $300 deposit instantaneously.

      Parts & Service with install:

        Whatever happened to that group buy you were trying to organize? Wasn't that for OSS?

        I admit I'm interested in these but $3k? F that.

        I'm not going to lie, they look stunning. However, the killer looks compare to the killer price.

        Mac is known for doing stuff out of the ordinary. They are local to us and i have seen their work first hand....the amount of time and labor that goes into these is a great deal, and that is most likely where the price comes from.

        no doubt, but have they done the research as to how many prospective buyers there are?

        Probably equal to the number of Popes in the Vatican.

        $3k.
        For that price, the headlights better include a blow job from Adriana Lima.

        They look fantastic. But if I had a spare $3,000 lying around, I could think of many things to buy before a set of headlights!

        They're nice, but not $3K nice. I know the bling crowd will buy them. I doubt the perfomance people will, they're too busy saving up for the Vishnu Meth KitClick here to enlarge

        Those Orb LED's are the best part I think. I would buy a set of those if possible but the Mac Edition is just too expensive, even if it does look extremely nice.

        They give you options so just getting the Orb LED's is possible.
