Exclamation DIY for front blinkers?

I've just received my pair of Niveus front blinkers for e90, but I have found no threads on how to change them. Please Help!

1. you need to turn your wheels to the right completely(or remove the wheel).

2. look at the wheel well directly behind the headlights and you will see an access panel to get to the lights.

3. remove the access panel by turning the top 2 corner locks.

4. you will now see a white or gray type of knob that will grant you access to the turn signal bulb you want to replace.

5. turn the knob and remove the bulb that is in there.

6. replace that bulb with your new one.

7. put everything back together and your done.


this should take like 15 minutes max if you don't remove the wheels. i hope this helps.

Thank you very much for your help, I just did what you said, extremely easy, I was afraid that the installation was as complicated as PIAA angel eyes. The light coming from bulbs seems pretty weak, but I guess it's normal for a while light.

the installation for piaa LOOKS complicated, but it truly isn't. i suggest that you buy lux 2.0 or wait for marc to come out with his new lux product to enhance your angel eyes. it really isn't difficult at all. i have installed all of my mods in my car(check my sig). i just followed all the DIYs on this site and pmed a few members on here for help and you can do the same. enjoy your car, but enjoy it more by modding it on your own or with other people. you get the satisfaction of doing it yourself and on your car rather than paying someone to do it(unless its a really complicated job). glad i could help.

I actually have PIAA's installed:


Oh yeah, right side IS brighter than left one, but as far as I know it's a common issue.

it will be white and you will barely see the orange reflector at night.

You WON'T see orange reflector at all at night. When you look at the car from the side, it looks like there're no blinkers on at all, because the light from these bulbs is only visible when looking at front of the car. Reflectors don't cover the actual blinker, so they don't add color whatsoever.
