DIY: e90 angel eyes

Product: MyCarr's Angel Eye kit

Note: bolts that have been illustrated for removal, must be done so on both sides of the car.

Tools Required:
- socket wrench (socket kit would be better)
- 8mm socket
- 10mm socket
- flathead screwdriver
- flathead stubby
- torx driver set

Optional Tools:
- car jack
- monkey (to hold your work lights)

Instructions:
- jack up car (optional)
- if you're doing a ghetto install like we did, jack up one side of the car

note these two locations


- remove these screws (8mm socket)


- use a flathead stubby to remove this access panel. i forgot to take a proper picture, but just above this panel (above the second red circle) is another 8mm bolt you'll need to remove.


- remove this 8mm bolt behind the wheel


- remove this 10mm bolt from behind the wheel


- remove these two bolts underneath the car


- remove this bolt from the edge of the bumper, under the car


- on the passenger side, you'll see a grill similar to this. remove the four 8mm bolts


monkey holding the work lights (optional)


- once the bolts are all removed, yank out the fender liner


- use a flathead to remove this plastic cover by the two tabs (top and bottom). behind it, there's a bulb held in by two torx screws. i don't have a picture of it, but it'll be blatantly obvious once you remove this black cover. be sure to disconnect the two wires connected to the bulb in addition to removing the 2 torx screws.


- connect the two wires to the +/- pins on your aftermarket angel eyes. note the brown is your negative.


- replace the angel eyes with the wires on the bottom, and screw in place. replace your fender liner and bolts.


here's the MyCarr box with the oem angel eye bulb removed


Finished product

Wow, what a big job! I've just ordered some GP Thunder H8's for my e93,... hoping I can install those from inside the engine bay, like on the e92(?)

Used a combo of these Angel Eye DIY's to change mine tonight. Great write-ups and VERY EASY to install. I didn't even use the guides after looking them over initially. If you can put a socket on a nut or use a screw driver, it is crazy simple! I am a new 330i owner but it is my baby and was a little nervous at first, didn't want to hurt it. With the guides and a little common sense, piece of cake! Thanks everyone for the effort to make these guides!
