I have a niggling feeling that this projector is from a BMW. Am I correct?

Well executed for sure.! Superb DIY.

This seems a BI-XENON as its one. The rings can be replaced with CCFL now if you want. This ring wont glow in the day time.

Post some picture of the focus as well

1) Which car's donor unit is this ? I think its from BMW.

2) What is the cost of :
a) The projector unit/s.
b) Overall cost of the project.

3) Can you please post some shots from inside the engine bay ?

4) Can we have shots on how the throw, spread and intensity of the beam ?

5) What are rating of the bulb you have in this setup.

6) The right and left fog lights have different light intensity. Is the right fog lamp bulb different from left ?

hey guys

(sending the new set of lights designed and fabricated)

to begin with i do not have a documented pic of the step to step process
it all begun as a craze to have projectors for my car, i'm an Industrial designer and been a designer with major brands, i'm based in Mumbai and i started this as a hobby and it got into doing projector Headlights for friends, most rather all of them have accent done bout 3 sets in less than 4 months.
i bought about 6 pair of Projector units from BMW, and i manufacture the LED Corona Rings/ Angel Eyes at my Studio, they are all lazer etched to precision

the costs

a set of projector units 3" = 11k
angel eyes/set = 4500
Silicon = 500
housing for the Projector = 4300
high temp heat Paint matt blk = 475
base coat high temp = 475
acrylic rings (spacer btw projector/angel eyes = 750
Headlight Unit(OEM) = 5400

in total bout 23k
