cheers

Jamie

It's not a bad job, just a bit fiddly, remover the two covers directly above the headlight units, then follow the wires to the back of the bulb you're going to replace.

Disconnect the plug connector, then turn the bulb to release, reverse procedure for the new bulbs.

It’s almost impossible to refit the new bulbs incorrectly as they have asymmetric location lugs

Just fitted some to my 335d this afternoon...........

Dead easy(maybe a little fiddly - but by no means difficult) and look great

Ebay - auction number 110497836218 38 inc P&P and look exactly the same as dearer ones

Car looks AWESOME now - gone is that amber glow of the originals..........

Do you have a link from where you got these as they look waaay better than the yellow ones.

*edit* do these make for a better view at night compared to stock lights?

only reason i can think of is lifespan...

you might find they crap out in far less time, but tbh as long as its not a week or so i might jump on that auction as well.

New LED's on the left - BMW bulbs on the right

The auction does look amateur but the product looks exactly the same as the dearer ones you see........... and received in 2 days from buying on ebay

They fitted precisely - the connectors were bob-on and it was 30 mins start to finish to get them fitted and take the photos

As far as i know - the Angel Eyes do bugger all in terms of actual "lighting" - they just look pretty

So now the angel eyes emit the same "colour" of light as the Xenon headlights - NOT that horrid Yellowy colour..........

Not sure why you need to spend more than double what i paid - unless someone can give me a genuine reason..........
