just done this conversion this morning. The bulbs arrived from Evolve last week and today i had a chance to get them in. Fairly easy to fit, just dont expect it to take a few minutes

They look a lot better than stock, very blueish , very cool

just a note to evolve if you are reading this, in case you wernt aware the metal housing on the bulbs is slightly larger than stock ones so they dont fit perfectly, but they are firmly in and i dont think it should cause any issues.

very pleased with my new mod ( dam i said i had finished modding )

the matte black grilles look awesome on the e92. Much better than the e90's because of the mustache thing.

That looks stunning.

Thanks for the headsup on the bulb fitment. Will keep an eye out for any issues in the future. Not had any issues so far.
