Exclamation Wanting to put HIDs in Angel Eyes

I have an 2008 328i cvtbL. A very credible shop is going to put HIDs in my angel eyes tomorrow. without replacing/removing the headlight. As he explained to me, he is simply going to use an h8 bulb along with an HID ballice to give it the look of complete halos in both circles. Could this void warranty? [b]i leased this car[b] but i still want to do it. It should be reversible, right? Thanks to everyone in advance.

I did put hid kit on my angel eye running 2007 e92 328i. The dealer asked me to put it back to the stock bulbs since hid kit is using too much voltage from the battery. In order to have hid angel eye for the car, u need to have hid kits and relays to keep the voltage 12v always. The wiring will be tough!

Don't know about leases, but it will definitely void a warranty if anything goes wrong with the headlight. You should be able to pull them out (reverse it) when you need, but if they damage the headlights (not unlikely), there'll be some problems.

This mod will most likely cause a dealer to refuse warranty service on any electrical fault - lighting or otherwise.
