A Quick question for you experts out there, is it a straight swap for headlights between two 2008 328i & 335i sedan, one comes with angel eyes housing and one just have a halogen housing. any input would be appreciated. Any harness connection issue??

Even if the housing and connectors are the same, you're going to have coding issues since the computer isn't expecting AE, etc.

So you're saying some lights might not work?? What if coding was done? Will it function normally??

From what I've read, it requires coding or getting different modules to read new headlights. It's the same thing that people swap pre lci tail lights for lci tail lights. Needs coding
