e90 lci angel eyes. [PLEASE HELP]

I know there is a thread on here somewhere to change the Valeo angel eyes for a 2009 e90 sedan. I cant seem to find it for some reason. The car is in the air and I am working on it right now but I cant seem to find it. If anyone can post it on here that would be great. Thanks.

rather than getting all feisty, why not make your own photo DIY while you do it?

it does involve a lot of patience, and I suggest you give it that. Keep at it as per the instructions and it will work. I did it in 15 minutes tops for both headlights. A photo DIY is also welcome. Did you use latex gloves? It prevents your hand from slipping since they tend to get really sweaty quickly. Also you don't wanna get sweat on the bulbs for functional reasons.

unfortunately what we are doing is different. It seems like you have a 335 and most likely have xenon headlights. My headlights are a pain in the ass, not only are they halogen, but they are VALEO Halogens. Here is the problem I am coming across. I posted some pictures in the original post. It does not match up therefore it has nothing to do with patients. I spoke to Marie from ModMy3 and we are looking for a solution as she said nobody has encountered this problem before.

You basically just need to make your own hole and screw the LED bulb to the plastic bracket.

Did you get pre-LCI angel eyes? Where did you get those and how much?

thanks a lot VTECaddict. I got them from ModMy3, Marie is very helpful and will get you what you need. It was $100 and if you add corner led's to your order or anything else you need, they have free shipping on orders over $150. I searched the forum but I didnt bother to look through google. I was told not to modify the bracket as well so I'll wait another day to see if Marie comes up with something else. Thanks a lot.

If you have LCI halogen headlights you have the wrong angel eye bulbs. Go to LUX angel eye website and click on e90 lci halogen.
