You need Halogen headlights from an LCI. Straight swap.

As above.

You could also fit LED rings to your headlights but the time and expense of that makes buying LCI unit a no-brainer.

PS I've done the conversion

Can someone confirm whether or not the Halogen to lci Angel Eye swap for a pre lci e90 definitely involves removing the front bumper, if so, are there any hidden problems to watch out for.

Thanks for any advice.

You can't fit the halogen's with angel eye rings. You can either buy LCI halogen headlights, which come with angel eye rings. Or buy the xenon headlights and do a conversion.

Thanks guy's

Nick, do you know if the front bumper has to be removed to facilitate the swapping over of headlights, irrespective of which headlights I end-up choosing?

Cheers.

I think by lenses you mean headlights? Sometime I have a hard time understanding you Limies. Anyway, yes the bumper has to be removed to be able to take out the headlight unit.

Yeah, I just changed the wording as it didn't look right to me.

Thanks.

PS. some of my family are American - living in Texas.

Well I'm a naturalized American I was born in Poland, and got "off the boat" when I was a kid. I do have family in England, don't remember the town though. One of my grandfather's brother's went there during WWII, he was a RAF air craft mechanic.

LIFE CYCLE IMPLUSE, it basically means a face lift in BMW terms.

The ones you posted up are LCI Halogen's. So yes they have angel eyes.

Not taking a sale from G-10 because I'm not ready to sell yet (still on the car). But I'll be selling a set of LCI halogen lights along with some other bits very soon.
