Pre-LCI e90 headlight swap to angel eyes

I know there are countless threads on this but I can't find the info I'm looking for.

I want to swap my pre-LCI halogen headlights to angel eyes with halos.

Can anyone who has done this swap or has any knowledge about it help me out?

I do not have the OEM xenons installed. I might go that route if anyone knows where to get good OEM parts.

What are you looking to do? Do you want OEM Angel Eyes or aftermarket LED Halos blacked out housing etc?

Well, all in all I would *prefer* plug and play installation for aftermarket angel eye headlights with a clear housing. I would go the OEM route for xenons if need be but it is way more expensive Found some aftermarket ones here but idk how I feel about it.

I got those exact headlights for my old 328i. It wasn't plug and play. I had to wire the parking lights up because they weren't wired up from he box. When it was all said and done though they were pretty nice. My biggest gripe was the Halo rings were florescent lights, so whenever they go out, there was no way to replace them. I didn't get errors with them once I had it all installed.

Awesome, that's a good coincidence. How difficult was the wiring?

And do you have any photos of them on your car by chance?

The wiring wasn't too hard. In fact when I got the kit, there were instructions on where to wire them correctly.

I'll dig through my archives to see if I have any pics. It's been awhile so I may not have any but I'll see...
