Cool Retrofitting AHL Headlights (Dynamic xenon) from standard

Hi mates,

Today I'm gonna show you how to retrofit Dynamic Xenon into a BMW e92/e93 (here in Spain this is an extra equipment)

It is not very difficut but expensive.

The task is remove the bumper, change the headlamps, wire them, change the FRM module and recode the car.

You can also see how to disconnect the battery and also how to remove the bumper.

Enjoy

Thanks mate!

You know that the problem for retrofitting is only the money
The knowledge about how to do it is the easiest part

Now I am looking for a dashboard for idrive and a CIC set.
I also have a Logic7 kit and a MULF2 high but waiting for the CIC since my current Head Unit is not able to manage them.

Cheers!

Very helpful diy. The only thing you didn't include was the part numbers for the pins. Here is also the official instructions from BMW.

Also my cornering lamps aren't working. They are wired the same way. I coded $524 and reset the frm.

I got the wirings from a scrap-yard so I do not know the p/n for pins.
I can provide the p/n for the small ones but I do not know the big ones (lights and power supply)

The wiring diagram is exactly the same especified in the PDF file but the inner cornering light because e90 has the same wire than halogen high beam.

E92/E93 does not have halogen high beam and this wire (which will be used for cornering) has to be fitted or code the fog lights as cornering (which illuminate worse than the inner eye).

The other way is not installing this wire and lose the cornering feature but I love it.

Regards.

Thanks, those turned out to be not what I needed. I went to the dealership and they only had 12 of the ones I did need so I took them all. I forgot to ask for the P/N though. I think supply for these things are controlled to stop people from mass producing DIY harness LOL.

I'm planning on building my own ALC wiring harness. I need to order 6 of each of the above parts for the connection to the headlight pins, correct?

Anyone have the part numbers for the eyelet for the ground wire, and the plugs going into the footwell module?

@[Jose_JN] Hello, is the schematic for the headlamp pinout the same with the one from e90 adaptive headlight? I have a error for the right SMC controller. NCS or any other program (INPA/ISTA...etc) can not communicate with it. I have replaced the SMC controller with a new one, but the problem is still present. So, as far as I noticed, pin no. 9 is the SMC power supply according to your diagram. That pin on my headlight connector is damaged(bended). I asked may other guys and they said that pin no. 9 of my headlamp is unused, so is not a problem that the pin is damaged. Thank you.

I know this is an old topic - but I hope you can help. I have the adaptive headlights from the factory. Recently the high beam has stopped working. I can activate the high beam with Rheingold just fine - but pulling (or pushing) the stalk only gives me the blue icon in the kombi - no high beam. If the curve lights are on and I pull the stalk - they will turn off just like expected. But the high beam will not be enabled.

Any ideas?
