Not R56 they are totally different. The R53 lights lift with the bonnet, R56 lights don't
You need facelift R53 Xenons 2004>2006

2006 is gen 1, the question was can he fit 2006 hid headlamps.
So it's only the face lift 2004-2006 hid headlamps will fit into my 2003 mini cooper s to replace my pre face lift hid headlamps, is this correct? ?

How to ask two different questions in one thread. Don’t be upset if the answers don’t turn out to be appropriate.

Don’t do the Joey mod. Please don’t. Mine were chrome and my friend had a orange mini with the black ones. We traded those and she took my chrome mirror caps for her black ones. Just look around eBay, or cars that are being parted out on Craigslist. Be patient and look constantly and you will find them.

They come up on eBay quite often. Make sure you get all the parts, ballasts, bulbs and washers and these are not cheap. The washers can be swapped but be careful not to break any bit when doing so because dismantling is needed.
