Default Cibie CSR lowbeam headlamps

I just picked up a '97 (no sunroof, no leather) ti 5 spd in nice shape for use as my dear wife's DD. It is all stock except for a Dinan chip. It is a sweet little car, but I don't like the low beam headlights at all, poor beam pattern (2 bright spots) and terrible cut off (I'm expecting that they'll suck in snow/rain/fog).
I have a set of Cibie CSR lowbeams that I pulled from my '90 BMW 325iX before I sold it and would like to install them since they are the best light I have ever used (and I already have them).
From my first look I am not sure that the low beam lamps can be removed easily from the stock headlight assembly. I saw the removal process in the knowledge section but it didn't address my quandry.

Any suggestions?

I don't think the factory headlights come apart, you'd need to buy Depo's or something, also I don't think the E30 headlights are the same size as the E36 and even if they were, what you're trying to do might end up looking pretty hacked together
