I'm not promoting these because I own a 08' E90 and that could be the reason for no errors. I also have Depo blackline LEDs and have no errors. They have been running good for over 3 weeks now! Thanks Jlevi!!!

ive been driving around with the error ever since, i dont really mind it. I assume its cuz i'm 06, but if you didnt get errors thats great. I'll get back to the write up soon, ive been super busy these past few days.

You aren't the only one. I pretty much got laughed at when I asked if the corners could come in amber...

I installed these a few days ago. It's very, very easy and they look remarkably good. Can't speak about errors though, since I opted for the hyper white option.

Hey can you please post pictures of the hyperwhite AE's. I so want to get these in hyper white!

What is the output of the light? Is it pretty bright and can you see the rings with the headlight on as well?

Yes it still uses H7 bulbs for the low beams.

The hyperwhite he was referring to was for the low beams, not the angel eyes.

We are currently working in house to provide an LED AE option More details to follow.

ok DIY is done sorry it took me so long to get the last leg done.

im glad to see white AEs are coming i just hope there is a way to install them without having to order a new set. Still running with errors but its not so bad. Every time it goes off i just look at how beautiful my headlights look and the error virtually disappears!

No need to order a new set, should be able to install it yourself but you will have to take the headlights out again in order to do so..

How do the P90s handle the high beams? Is there a shutter to close off the Xenon beam when you flash the high beams? Or does it cut power to the low beams?

The P90s use the inner beam for the high beams when that is activated.

+1 on this question, my high beams seemed to be aimed just barely higher than the low beams.
