I just put mine in my 2008 e93. It's pretty good for $50 bucks. The outer ring doesn't illuminate that great but its still better than the yellow OEM ones. I also put in the GP Thunder 7500K Fog lights and they aren't that bad either. The don't exactly match the angel eyes or the 6000K bulbs, but they still look better than the stock halogen. I will upload pics in a couple of days.

Hmm...i wonder if urs being e93 and mine e90 has anything to do with the outter ring lighting up more. I think mine light up pretty evenly. I'll wait n see your pics. Direct sunlight doesnt do them justice. Do a shade shot or dusk shot.

Not quite direct - a bit overcast from rain coming in, but I wanted to capture what they looked like in as much daylight as I could (in that moment). And, I believe my flash went off on the camera, so that took away from some of the brightness of the halos.

Here are the pics I promised. The vendor said that this is the way it looks on the e92/e93 because of the way the rings are designed. It's not bad at night but it's not that great in the daylight as many post have suggested. I know you guys are gonna say it looks terrible but I'll take it over the yellow eyes at least until I can do the Lux H8's. I didn't expect the greatest look based on my research and the low cost but I was so sick of the yellow halogens I figured I'd try these. Also the setup and bulbs are different from the E90. Pics were taken on an Iphone by the way.

That sucks that they didnt work how mine worked. But i agree they still look way better than the stock yellows. Especially for the price u cant beat it. And im sure it looks better in person cuz the iphone camera isnt great at capturing the angel eyes in their true appearance.

I removed mine. Maybe if u r super flexible with long arms and the right tools u might b able to do it by just turning the wheels. Also check out the e93 a couple posts up...im guessing ur angel eye is the same setup as his, which is different than mine. If thats the case, notice how his inner bulb is brighter. Just a heads up in case ur wondering if something went wrong. Still looks better than stock tho. Hopefully u dont run into that issue. Post before/after pics!

New sig! Greyed out everything except the headlights

On the E92/E93 you don't have to take the wheels off. You can do everything from under the hood, but the space you have to work with is very small and tight, so expect a few hand cuts by the time you finish If you have small hands it will be relatively easy. Also FYI, if you are buying the ones from BMW_LED like I did, you don't have to use the secondary resistors they include. They work without them and they also get extremely hot. You only have to use them if your car throws codes. Mine worked with no issues. The pic shows the only pieces you have to use. BMW_LED responded very quickly when you ask them questions.

Figured out you didn't need to take the wheels off, feel kind of dumb but either way , checked out the video should be an easy install. Thanks for the advice
