guys, I have been running this HID fog even during daytime and has no problem whatsoever. Beam pattern is like what JPSlick shown in the pics. At night, it is bright and you can see the road soooo much better. My best mod that worth the money so far.

If you guys want some video footage, my buddy made some compilations of my car.

You can get a good idea of how the foglights, angel eyes, and some LED interior too.

My car is pre March. As the detailed thread will show, I was the forum member who used my car to test these out. They work COMPLETELY ERROR FREE. NO dings, no errors, no disco ball flickering, no error cancellers :-)

If there are any other questions about cut off or how it looks on the road I have some nice video footage that can also show the beam pattern and cut off.

Thank you!

Nice toes, do you get them done at the same place I go to???? LOL

I am about to order 2 sets of bulbs from highperformance...

On the fogs.. are you running the 4300K or 6000K? I still have the factory HID low beam lights and want my fogs to match with it. I'm thinking I should go with the 4300K so my lights match up.

Also on the angel eyes, do they dim when you turn on your headlights? I am thinking about getting the Nokya Angel Eyes: http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/no4wah8bmwan.html

Thanks in advance for your help!

I run the 4300K in my fogs which match the factory HID Low beams.

I run the Luminics yellow Halogen H8 bulbs currently for my angel eyes, which perform just like stock in the dimming aspect.

I have run the Nokya LED in my angel eyes before and if I recall correctly they did dim like stock. Not 100% but I feel like I would remember they flickered if they infact did flicker. I apologize in advance if I end up being wrong, I ran those sometime back in may of 2010 and have a hard time remembering what I had for breakfast let alone something that happened 7 months ago lol. I always recommend the Halogen Bulb route.

Ordered a set of the Canbus 4300k H11's, can't wait to get them in!! I wanted the E90 interior kit as well but the dome lights are out of stock, I'll pick them up later.

Also got some Lux 5.1's and some Nokya H7's to try and match my OEM HID's, I will try and get some pictures once its all in.

Must say I really enjoy this forum and all the helpful insight!!

I am researching this conversion. I have OEM Halogen. I do not have AE yet. What do I need to get? I am not seeing full light housings. Do I need to order from jlevisw then get these?
Let me fully explain what I want. I have OEM Halogen, I want to have projectors with AE's. I'm thinking 6000k. I want HID Highs and fogs all to match. I want AE's color to match. What exactly do I need to get. I will not deal with errors. I had a low tire error come on and couldn't wait to get home and fill up my tire.

Thanks for the information. Just changed out my OEM Halogen with HID and LED AE's from JLevi. Just installed Hamann's quad driving light (DL) front bumper and just started looking at where I can get some HIDs for the DLs. I think this will help me make up my mind.

Also, thanks for the pictures and follow-up to other posters questions.

Sounds like you want a complete housing conversion to projectors.
Errors are fun on this car and avoiding them is 90% of the battle, good luck!
Figure out your housing situation first is my best advice, then work towards the HID aspect.

I posted this in another thread but thought it was appropriate here as well. Passenger side is the highperformancebulbs H11's with Lux 5.1 AE's the driver side is Sylvania Silverstars... These fogs are nice, love the look!!

You guys need to stay tuned, I should be getting a new shipment of a LED's for the front of the vehicle.

Can anyone guess what I'm talking about or referring to?

I'm hoping it will look clean but I wont know until I get my hands on them.
