Question How do you Install DTEC Angel Eyes ?!

Hey guys,Need some pointers here.

I'm frustrated and I've given up.

Before anything,let me just tell you all I've installed LEDs for angel eyes plenty of times on my old E92 335i and my most recent E82 135i. So i'm very familiar on how to do this. I've never had any issues installing in the past.


Now...I'm trying to install these on an 07' E92 328i I just picked up and I can't get these bastards in !! How the hell are you guys able to get these in with such a big base and weird design ?!

Any ideas ?

Remove the headlight perhaps ?

Discuss.

Are you sure it's compatible? Maybe you got the wrong ones. Anyways i recommend taking the headlight off. It's definitely not necessary but will make your life so much easier

Those should actually be even easier than the V4. The key is to make sure you know where the slots are on the housing so you can line up the 3 tabs on the bulb. I used a dental mirror to check the locations of the slots. The smaller of the three slots is at the 1 o'clock position when looking from the front of the vehicle. The secret is putting the bulb in Heat sink first and then using two fingers on the thin piece which holds the LEDs to lift the bulb up into the hole. If you've positioned the bulb correctly, it will be easier to get the tabs into the correct slots and snug it up.

I know how frustrating it can be, I've done this many times. Once in awhile I need to get the wife to help with her smaller hands!

It's definitely worth the effort once you get them in. I just installed the High Performance Bulb 20W LED bulbs in my E92. Much brighter than H8 and even brighter than the old Weisslicht LEDs I've had in there for the last 2 years!

Good luck!
