installed mine today

Got mine today.It was more complicated than expected,due to limited space.They work fine on my E92 2007,production:12/06.My tips:
1) don't get confused with sides of the car, original bulbs remove by turning to right,regardless of the side you are working on
2) the best way to insert the new bulb is to drop the back of the bulb by holding the wire and then insert the front of the bulb
3) when you remove the old bulbs align them with the new ones(just like you removed it) and make small mark on the top of the rober seal.This wil help you to put the new one back without any problems
4) due to limited space I used ice tongs to tighten back the new bulbs.I would not be able to accomplish this without the tongs.

Im assuming when you say turn to the right you mean as your looking at the car..turn towards driver side to loosen?

Just received the 2 new sets I ordered and installed one my girls car and my buddy installed his on his car, both cars look awesome! Dropped my camera and busted it so no pics right now

These look much better then the 10 watt 2 LED version my buddy had installed and much better then the GP Thunder bulbs my girl had in her car. Great buy for the money! Thanks again Jeff!

Works great on my 1/07 e92 with no errors. Outer ring is barely lit, however. Pic is a comparison with Khoalty's $8 h8 halogen bulb.

With all these 07's working it might be safe for you to list 2007 as error free now?

Is there any particular place the heatsink and the black tube have to go inside the housing? Im guessing no.

Nowhere specific but try to give it some breathing room if you can.

Finally had a chance to install the set I received last week. These are very well made, and come packaged very nicely. The install itself is pretty straight forward for an e92, all you need is a flathead screwdriver; though having small hands will help out a lot! Getting the bulbs in is a little difficult and I found it easiest to dip the back of the bulb down into the housing and then bring the bulb back up at an angle into the opening and slowly bring the rear of the bulb up. Rubber lined pincers or grips will come in handy with tightening the bulb, you won't need much force, you just want to lock it in and line it up with the fiber optics.

My initial impressions of these angel eyes when lit is that they are slightly cooler in temp compared to the stock HID bulbs and give off a slightly bluish tint to them. They will NOT light up the rings evenly; but this is a design of the angel eyes themselves and not the bulbs. They are very bright however and I will get around to posting photos once I have the chance. When you lock the car and the angel eyes power down, instead of fading to zero they flicker down slightly before turning off. Doesn't bother me much since I don't usually stare at my car as it locks. Great bang for the buck, definitely would recommend these to anyone!

Edit: These do flicker upon startup due to the factory bulb check. The car pulses a low current to check continuity on the bulbs, and on a halogen it's not enough to light it up, but due to the lower power requirements of LED's, the LEDS will flicker for a few seconds. Not sure if the higher priced LED angel eye brands do this as well.

Mine flicker every time I start the car and the light switch is in the "off" position. If it's in the Auto position I'm not sure, since in my parking structure the lights turn on automatically as soon as I start the car. What position is your headlight switch in?
