Ebay or BillBoost37 here on BC would be your best bet for some new headlights. Are you looking to do a proper intake or just looking for a drop-in K&N filter?

Oh maybe I misunderstood, were you looking for new headlight units or bulbs? If units, see my recommendations above; if bulbs, I recommend Silverstars as well.

put the H/B light in the L/B side and get even more light, take a look
http://www.bmwe34.net/E34main/Upgrade/More_light.htm
did it to our car over a year ago, love the light i have now and NO one has flashed there lights at us yet and we do a lot of night driving. you do get more light, a 9005 bulb has 70% more lumens than the 9006 (1700 lumens vs 1000 lumens).
the one problem i see is when i get in my truck(1999 Ford) , its like i have headlights from the 1950'* or 60'* . they look dull and dont light up the road near as good as the modified 9005 lights in my SSEi.
