Lighting Upgrade on 2007 320i

Hey All...

I just got myself a pre-facelift 320i, and while it came with Xenons, it doesn't have fog lights.

I'd like to achieve the following:

1) Add fog lights
2) Upgrade the bulbs so they match my headlights
3) Upgrade the bulbs for the angel-eyes so they're bright white

I'd appreciate any suggestions or guidance on getting this done. As mentioned above, the car is a South African, 2007, 320i, without i-Drive. I'd like to complete these projects myself, but don't want to inflict any damage upon the car.

Thanks

ZA320i

The foglight conversion is quite an expensive route (wanted to do it myself!) but the angle eye upgrade it very simple.
Check out Max motorsport or Revo Performance or Zmax, they will courier you a set.

Hey Menno...

Thanks for the response. It's quite a relief to find a fellow South African on these boards who's as knowledgeable as you are. I've always been a BMW fan, and I've owned an E36, and E46 in the past, but I've never attempted any sort of modification on a car this complicated before. I have nightmares about the entire thing going south and the car being reduced to a useless pile of junk.

How difficult would you say adding standard fog lights would be? Also, is the angel eye upgrade a "plug and play" application? What would you say amounts to a fair price for the replacement bulbs on that?

I know I'm asking a lot, but like I mentioned before, I'm a complete novice when it comes to stuff like this.

Again, thanks for the information

The best route for fog light installation (just due to complexity) would be to go through the dealers and I think they'll charge you a considerable amount!
The angel eye replacement upgrade is a simple plug and play and should cost about R800 (excl courier cost)

Hi ZA320, being a 2007, I assume it is still on motorplan. Not a goot idea to do any mods. Dealers are quick to make you pay using the excuse that mods have been done.

Hi Menno, what mods have you done. Was scared to do anything to my car in fear of them telling me motorplan will not pay. Interesting

Is this a trick question to get my motorplan cancelled? he he!!

Jenich I have made software changes, interior and exterior cosmetic changes, different wheels and aftermarket sound.

Just check all my blogs on this Africa section and you can see all my mods.
