god dam ebay liars!

hi all,

i decided to fit some white angel eyes to my lci 320d.
i saw some on ebay and ask the seller specifically if the ones he was selling caused errors or radio interference. he said they did not. i got them fitted today (they came with no instructions and removed the arch liners for no reason lol) and whilst they look good, the fm radio reception is
now ruined! ive raised a case to return them.
can anyone recommend some budget lci angel eyes that do NOT cause errors or radio interference?

andy

wouldnt mind upgrading the interior light to white also if anyone has a link.

I bought my white interior LEDs off this guy...

He's not far from where I live, so I went and collected them. You can give him a call and he can sort a package price out aswell.

After a lot of research I went for WeissLicht and I'm very happy with them. I read about the issues you have found and problems with overheating and flickering. Not exactly budget and I got stung 20 for import duties, but I didn't think it was worth the risk of buying an unknown brand.

Some photos here:

Most ebay traders are unlikely to have fitted any and would never admit something like this as it would ruin sales, raise a dispute to get your cash back, it will cost you postage, but at least you are not stuck with them!

UPDATE: contacted seller and she said that they had sent the wrong ones. got the new ones today. No errors or radio interference so happy. They flicker on start up but for 35 im not complaining. Will go for the interior upgrade now as per above.

that flicker is caused by the cold/warm bulb checks and the voltage being lower, it can be coded out if you want (ive done this for another lad recently)
