You want the high quality one for e 90 pre LCI.... Doesnt mean the slim ballast is less quality, its just a slim ballast and wont work on the Pre LCI models.

and it works flawlessly.
Proven kits by real members FTW

I was told the upgraded ballasts are a normal sized ballast, not the slim design, and they have room for the larger higher quality chips and capacitors and that was the main difference between them besides the upgraded canbus technology. Both are very reliable and they pretty much perform the same. I figured since the price was not that much more to just go with the ballast upgrade. A friend of mine has the slims in his E92 and they look exactly the same as mine on start up and once they warm up.
Spot on with this post...

Like many of you pre lci owners i dealt with buying kits that were "error free" or included "error free modules". I wasted a sh!tload of money and not to mention embarrassment when my lights would randomly shutoff or flicker like a disco ball. These work............case closed lol
Yes the whole basis of this thread was to have real members with real results post about their HID experience.

There are some DIY and a maybe a couple vendors vouching this and that..

Atleast with the kit I tell you guys about, we have proven results that work.

No need to reinvent the wheel!
