E90 Angel Eye Bulb

Can someone point me in the direction of a DIY for a 2006 E90 with OEM HIDs angel eye blub replacement? The user manual is about as useless as a wet turd.

Im having a helluva time finding one for the E90, lots for E92s.

Hmm I missed that one, I guess the same process would apply but instead of replacing with the PIAA lamps, just put OEM ones back in.

Awesome detailed video here by Bavarian Auto that I followed. Only thing I didn't do is take off the tires. I turned wheels all the way out and gained access to wheel well no problem. Changed out the bulbs in no time.



I bought these bulbs : http://www.burgertuning.com/BMW_LED_angel_eyes.html
You can email them for the specific ones for your car before you order

Yes, this is a very easy DIY job. Indy shops wanted to charge me $260 for 1 bulb plus installation. I bought two bulbs from Amazon for $40 and installed both bulbs myself in under an hours time.

Most intimidating part for me was taking off the wheel well and keeping track of all the screws. After that it's pretty cake, especially if you watch the youtube video.
