Default E46 Headlight Housing

I've had trouble over the years with the passenger side headlight on my E46. I had some accident damage, it was put together wrong, the housing kind of melted and then it's gotten more wrong. I drove it today and can't figure out why the high beam DRLs aren't on on one side, but neither is the idiot light on the dash. See next post.


Anyhow, anyone recommend some "non-OEM" alternatives to replace these?

When do you expect to complete the rest of the under lighting?
