UPDATE 3: AW E90 Pre-LCI halogen to OEM Euro LCI bi-xenon non-AHL/LUX H8 v3 retrofit

*** Special thanks to Dimsum in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) for performing the minor headlight modifications and coding ***

BEFORE:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=364782 ('UPDATE 2 to AW E90: Performance Exhaust/Steering Wheel, Al pedals, M3 cf rear spoiler')


AFTER:
  • OEM Euro-spec LCI bi-xenon non-adaptive headlights (non-AHL). Since non-AHL lights do not have cornering (inner) bulbs, the inner lights appear darkly tinted to hide this fact.
  • Error-free after minor rewiring and coding
  • Angels eyes function as daytime running lights (DRLs) after some additional coding (no DAEOS/VISTA harness required)
  • Hi-beams work after minor rewiring and coding; however, the solenoid does not appear to open the bi-xenon shutter all the way. This will be fixed in the future by adding in a capacitor in series to the wiring harness. In any case, the current light output from the hi-beams is fantastic.
  • LUX H8 v3 E90 LCI Xenon angel eyes appear to be working without any issues after a ~500 km test drive. Has anyone actually measured the power consumption of LUX H8 v3? (I believe the OEM LCI Halogen angel eyes run at 10 Watts.)
  • Dimsum provided great customer service; he will do his absolute best to ensure that you are completely happy with you mods!
    Feel free to contact Dimsum at *********************

Lights off (Engine not running)




DRLs on (Engine running)






Driver side lights off




Driver side DRLs on

Hey ssm12, would you mind PMing me to talk about what wiring mods you needed to have done? I can't pm yet I guess, because I haven't posted enough. I am getting ready to swap to LCI xenons as well and would like to chat with someone that has actually done it. Thanks!
