Again, difficult to photograph, but these are the 20W CREE with pre-LCI E90 Xenons.

The 40W pictures doesn't seem to have a separate ballast box on the wiring, can you confirm if this is the case and the ballast is built-in to the bulb

Hi, the light output matches the factory colour xenons on my Pre Lci E92 very well, I have 40W fitted, and they do have a ballast per bulb, which I managed to cable tie up inside each headlight housing.

Hi Charlie,

The light output on all our BMW Angel Eyes is the same, it is a very close match to your OEM Xenons. Some pictures do look different to others but in real life these do look the business!

As for your PRE-LCI E92, as long as your current Angel Eye bulb is H8 fitment then you can go for any of the below: -

http://www.horizonleds.co.uk/H8-led

Of course the 40W is the brightest option and tends to fill the rings a little better and currently it is our most popular one with it being 40W and the latest version.

As for the ballasts they all come with these across our entire range. The 40W however does come with an additional two smaller ballasts what can be used in case you get radio interference from the LEDs, but I have yet to hear from a customer who has had to use these. But they are there if you do need them.

I hope that helps.

Cheers

Happy to send some piccies if needed, 2006 335d.
Email me your details (order number/name) and I will refund you 5% back to your card. Email me at Forums@HorizonLEDs.co.uk

As for the pics, the more the better as we really want to see how they look against different models and colours etc...

We have all different range of possible LEDs and I am assuming you need the Wedge type LEDs (T10/501) for your interior as thats what I have fitted on an E90 320d in the past. If you could email me across what you need exactly and its location and I will write you up a little email with all the links for the ones you need.

Again email as above.

Thanks guys!

Zain can I ask if these flicker on start up? Is this a common trait with LEDs that I've heard of? Also are these ok to fit my e92 as it has the adaptive lights?

Hi, yes the flicker question was bound to come up lol... when you turn on the ignition on any BMW car the CANBUS system sends small voltage currents to all the cars exterior bulbs to see if there is a complete circuit for each light.

If there isnít then it throws up bulb errors on the dash, its how the CANBUS Error system works on newer cars.

Now because the LEDs can technically run on very low voltage they start to cause this flicker when its testing the system as small currents are shooting through the cars wiring.

But when they car is fully started and the alternator is charging and the lights are switched on they eventually get full 12V power so they stay on constantly after that. This wonít cause any damage to the LED bulbs though.

I must stress though that not all models of BMW flicker, its only some of them it even depends on the other options you have on your car such as the Sat Nav, Bluetooth kits etc... every car is different and I can't tell you exactly until you've tried them in your own cars. The flicker only lasts a few seconds thats all. They will not flicker when the car is driving or started, only when the CANBUS system runs checks.

There are a few people who have coded their cars differently to avoid this by going deep into the ECU etc... but we don't get involved in this side of things nor do we recommend it, as its only a few seconds of flicker upon unlocking the doors/startup. And its a rather dim flicker from what I have seen.

I hope that explains it all?

oh and yes full compatible with the Adaptive lights. Just ensure the model you pick on our website has your model (E92) listed in the compatibility list.

Mine arrived this morning in the post and are already in the car ! 1st impressions are good - not quite as bright as I expected but was limited to the 20W. Also bear in mind that it's lovely and sunny out there so my perception may change when it gets dark. All in all a good upgrade, just a pain that you have to remove wheels and arch liners to get at them but managed it in my lunch hour (ish )

pics to follow

Hi All,

Check out what arrived in the office today... we are probably the only UK supplier who has this product and I can say that very confidently: -





















These are our new Plug & Play CREE-XML Fog Lights and they will be available in H8, H10, H11, HB3/9005 & HB4/9006 fittings.

At the moment we only have H8 in stock ready to ship and we will begin pre orders soon on our website. They won't take more than a week to arrive, apart from the H8 which we already have.

These are a brand new and innovative CREE-XML Fog Light kit and are simply plug and play. They are Canbus friendly and come with the ballasts too. These are designed to match our BMW Angel Eye Kits, therefore they will nicely match any OEM BMW Xenon lights and 5000-6000K HID Kits.

Each bulb has a patented lens/tip on the edge to disperse the exact light output/beam as OEM fog lights but of course in a brighter and longer distance as you can see in the pictures of the current F Series BMW along with a VW Golf MK5.

Also it comes with a 2-Year warranty just like our BMW Angel Eyes!

Comments and questions are welcome. The link will be posted once these are on the website.

Thanks,

Horizon LEDs

Ok I give up how the hell do you fit these in an E93. I gave up after an hour and half with knuckles in shreds.

Cannot get the bulbs to lock in place for some reason. Is there a knack I'm missing?
