Need help with a little electrical retrofitting
Published by Marconi
Need help with a little electrical retrofitting

Hi to you all,

I suppose you all know by now, and I recently found out that Bmw became some what of a cheapskate with the E90 lci produced after Spring 2009.

I bought my car a month ago, euro model, and noticed that all sort of bits and pieces are not here and I will try to do what I can.

The flashlight in the glove compartment, driver and passenger footwell lights, footwell power outlet, two rear power outlets and ashtray, part of the tools in the trunk, trunk opening button by the drivers left leg, switch for seperately locking the trunk, emergency release lever, alarm prewireing, even the amber LED in the front ashtray is missing. Insane because it saves them a couple hundred euros on a car costing much much more.

So i decided to retrofit the footwell lights, and the footwell power outlet. That something I can do myself. Just need the list of the exact part numbers so I can order them. A DIY guide on how to do the actual work would be fabulous. I found some of them but nothing for the E90.

Sorry for the long post, and my not so good english.

I found out what is needed for the footwell lights retrofit. Maybe someone else will find it usefull.

2 pcs. 63316972605 - Interior light

2 pcs. 63217160797 - Longlife bulb (12V 5W)

4 pcs. 61130006663 - BUSHING CONTACT (0.75MM˛)

2 pcs. 61138377072 - Universal socket housing

Regarding the passenger footwell power outlet no luck. In the part catalogue there is the illuminated front ashtray outlet, the one in the central armrest, trunk, and the 2 for the backseat passengers but not what I need. Maybe some of them would fit just don't know which.

I have managed to fix the footwell power outlet but the connections for the footwell lights I can not find. Have you had any success?
