Hey Guys, I have an E92 LCI. I wanted to know if there is an easy way to brighten the angel eyes besides Umnitza, LED Rings etc. I heard it can be via coding but its not recommended. If I'm not mistaken the A.E on the LCI is powered individual LEDs and not a bulb that can be swapped out.

This is the light source that your headlights use for the angel eyes. This is a unique setup using a Phillips LED. Coding would be the best option because when these lights are at full power they are seriously intense.

Is there any cons of coding them?

Hmm.. I didn't know you can code the LCI lights to make them brighter. Maybe, I'll do this too......
I just swapped mine out for aftermarket ones, which I LOVE 100x better than stock.

Oh so you went with aftermarket rings? Thats surprising to hear because the E92 LCI's are so damn bright to start with.

Yes, and I agree. I realized after being around so many aftermarket ones, that mine are still washed out and dim compared to their's. So, I joined the group!

That's funny because installers even told me its a waste of money to get like Umnitza / OSS because of the LCI's brightness.

Does anyone know which clear lenses fit in the car? Probably going to pair it with Osram CBI bulbs.
