Just to clarify, you just jack up the car but did not remove the wheel?

You can leave the wheel on. You only need to jack up the car so you have working room between the tire and the wheel well.

From my experience it was so much easier with the wheel off the car and i'm a pretty skinny guy. lol Takes me less than 5mins to jack the car up and take off the wheel so its a no brainer really.

Yes it will. The pre-LCI E90 330,328, and 335 share the same xenon housing and bulbs.

Nice Post

I took my baby in for an oil change and the shop wanted to charge me $200.00 for this procedure. I did myself in about 25 minutes. My local BMW dealership discounted the part and gave me a pair of mat hold-downs that were never in my car. Cool!
Thanks

Anyone done this personally on a 2011 e90 w/ xenon bulbs?

I'm just trying to figure out the access point.

This guy did a write up on a bulb that he used... enough pictures & info to make it DIY:

The access point is a small, finned, circular knob.

Thanks a lot ! It worked perfectly

I did my fog lights and AE using e92-lighting.com H8 HID and only took me 30 minutes.

Very very hard that way. It's much better if you jack car and remove wheel. You will have so much space after that.

There is a metal clip at the top of each cover, push it up to release each cover.
