2004 Alpine head lights...

I did a search... didn't find the answer...

I want to replce my headlights with the same exzact factory ones... no halo's or custom stuff....

I just want the same ...and I want to um plug them and plug the new ones in...

did alpine do different wiring or change the plugs...????


all the threads were confusing to me and I couldn't find a clear answer...

I bought mine on eBay. They were DOT approved and made in Taiwan by DEPO. They seemed well built but moisture formed on the inside and I had to warranty them. I've had no moisture issues with the replacements but noticed that the alignment bubble levels were missing. No biggie. I've been wiping the lenses down with 303 protectant to hopefully keep them from crazing. They were exact replacement. Plug and play.

I bought mine through user extremelights2003. Maybe contact him on eBay and see if he has any. I could post a pic but they would look like the ones on your coach...only clear and shiny new.

Think this will work for the driver's side--assume you want to replace the passenger side too???? Be advised, these lights were produced over several years to work on several different model/years of BMW. Accordingly, the wiring connections will probably have to be modified to match your model of Alpine--especially if you have a Vansco-based wiring system on your coach.......

All I did was twist the old lamps out of their sockets and twisted them into the new lamp assemblies. Oh, there was a bracket on these that wasn't used and I had to unscrew and remove. No big deal.

I seen your other post for your new Alpine, very nice. Why don't you just get a headlight restore kit. If they are just fogged on the outside the restore kits work very well to make them look good. Some kits are better then others. If they are not real bad, I have used toothpaste on them.
