Exclamation 2010 E90 LCI Angel Eye Upgrade

Hi All!

I am having a problem with my E90 and the angel eyes - they (halogen set-up) don't look nice at all!

Just so you all know I have an 2010 E90 LCI (UK Car) with Xenons & Adaptive lights (if that helps with understanding).

I would like to change the angel eyes so they have better visual appearance - upgrade to led?

So far, I have tried and failed (I think!) - Got my hands on a pair of MTEC v2 6w LED. Went all the way through the entire process, stripping part of the car down, getting to the back of headlight, then realised it would't fit! Is there a guide for replacing the E90 LCI's angel eyes?

Can anyone suggest a set up for me? What would be the best option?

Pretty sure that the MTec LED kit doesn't work with the E90 LCI angels
You can use any H8 halogen bulb, LUX H8 or OSS in order from cheapest to most expensive...I personally have the GP Thunder 7500K V2 and am happy

Check out this thread started by a fellow countryman: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451469

I posted a link to a tutorial for AE's, and a couple of vendors also participated in the thread. The info contained therein should help you get started.

without the F....

There's actually a good picture as to where to access the bulb in the manual.

Also, it's an H8 bulb, 55w I believe. That's also in the manual.

You can also check out e92-lighting.com they have some great information
