e93 Light Upgrade Advice Needed.

I have a 2007 e93 and I'm looking for information on changing the amber signals to white LEDs. Do I need some kind of conversion kit for the sidelights?

Also trying to research my options for changing the Angel Eyes in this model.

Are the options for the e92 Angel eyes and front signals all compatible with the e93 as well?

Thanks!

The front turn signal is PY24W and there's no aftermarket bulb in that size yet. Even if you have that size available. There's still an amber LED above the turn signal bulb that you need to get rid of.

My recommendation is to do the corner delete mod.

Like everyone else said, the front turn signals are not available at the moment.

We do offer LED replacement bulbs for the sidemarkers, rear turn signals and interior/license plate lights- V2 LED Front or Rear Turn Signal Bulbs, V2 LED Sidemarker Bulbs or Complete LED Based Sidemarker Replacement Housings

For the angel eyes and reverse lights, we offer the Predator Xenix Bulbs which will upgrade the look to match your OEM xenons.

For the E92/E93, there are no aftermarket front turn signals available as they use a specific fit bulb that is not available at the moment.

The V2 Front or Rear turn signals will only work in the rear for your car. You can replace the side fender mounted turn signals with either our V2 Sidemarker Bulbs for the Full LED Based replacement housings.

Nick,

Thanks for the response. Couple questions about the housings:
Do they cause error messages?
Is the 59.99 on the website for 1 housing or 2?

Thanks!

Neither the V2 Sidemarker Bulbs or the Complete Housings will cause bulb out warnings. They are 100% plug and play replacements.

All pricing is for a pair so $59.99 is for a pair of housings.

How the heck did you come up with that conclusion of yours? Nick said that it won't....... I've been running LED bulbs in the side markers on the fenders for a year and no errors.

That kit will work for the rear turn signals only. The front turn signals on the E92/E93 are a specific fit that are not available at the moment.

Kev is correct...the sidemarkers DO NOT cause an error.
