great review!!
i ordered 8500k v2 this week tuesday from e92lighting as well.
hopefully they'll arrive next week, i live in vancouver so waiting time for us should be the same
ill post some pictures once i have them installed !!

just a quick question tho. on the drive side, dont we turn the bulb right to lossen it up then back left when we put it back in?
I was watching the diy video for e92:

maybe e90 and 92 works differently?

gaifaun - I always enjoy reading your write ups. Concise and detail oriented and pictures mean a thousand words!

I am still waiting for the GP 8500k for my AE and cornering light from e92lighting. I ordered last Monday and hopefully I can post some pics of my AE soon!

I will give you a shout if I see your car in Richmond =)

Talking GP Thunder 8500K H3 and H8

Here is the result of GP Thunder 8500K on my e93

GP Thunder 8500K H3 (Cornering) and H8 (Angel Eye): not sure where to see if it is V1, V2, or V3


OEM:


AE (Ignition On):


AE (Ignition On):


AE, Cornering, HID all on


Note: As gaifaun stated, the passenger side's AE is pretty hard to install. Driver side took me less than 10 minute and passenger side took me around 30 mins. Make sure you remember the angle when you take out the OEM bulb and put new bulb into the same angle.

Cheers! Thanks e92lighting.com!

Hi,

I know this is a 2-year old post, but I have a question - was the access to the light assembly under the hood, or was it the front wheel wells? I also have an 09 LCI.

Thanks!

Under the hood--roughly in the same location as above in the e92 video, but the access is quite different. Instead of a lid on top, look for a twist off cap on the back side of the headlight housing. Hope this helps.

Thanks Ben.

Dammit. I have the warranty sticker on there. Wonder if there are serious implications...

Gladly.

Yeah, I noticed that too--in German IIRC. I removed it; no idea about the implications. Leads me to believe that if serviced by BMW, they may replace the sticker as any cap twisting will rip the sticker.

Did the 7500's last week and not to sure if I like them. How can I get the bright halos like every new BMW I pass?

I know this thread is old but I just installed the GP Thunder Angel Eyes on my LCI E90. So when the Xenon is off, the bulb is white. When the Xenon is on, the bulb is yellow.

Do I need to code the car to increase the voltage for Angel Eyes?
