why not just get Morimoto HIDs and code that in. It's about $150 and bright as hell.

So I guess that solves whether these fit 335D's with adaptive HIDs.

(Sorry for few big ones, for clarity.)
Sorry to hear they do not fit the 335d

I had purchased a set from him last week shipping was really fast i received one new one look like used bent corners with marks on them i texted him and he sent me one more piece only and it is bent as well, what i did is i straightened out the bent sides and put it on, but it is 2 big for the housing the cap doesn't close if do remove the cover for the electronics as "JASONDCARBON" I'm sure it will fit but I thought it wouldn't be safe.
I'm going to text him tomorrow and sent these back. But they were bright like lux.

I've never heard of a problem occurring the manipulating the housing unit, especially since you have to place it in the plastic housing underneath the car. But in your case if you'd rather be extra safe no problem there

of course they dont fit, same with E92 . there is nothing wrong with Ebay pricing, but if you think about it how come vendors cant match Ebay pricing, it will all make sense.....

Oh please, the only difference is the amount of profit padding in the pricing. It's obvious that vendors and eBay source their products from the same places in China. Anyone who has spent any time in Hong Kong or Shenzhen knows this is how things work - a handful of manufacturers produce products generally anonymously, which are then purchased in large bulk quantities by distributors which then brand the items or imply that they are involved, if not responsible for development. These distributors then sell in bulk quantities to vendors and eBay sellers, who then go on to to sell the items individually.

By the time all is said and done, LED angels sold by the distributor for $40 a piece and the manufacturer for half that are then sold by vendors for well past the hundred dollar point. Obviously there's some necessity in markups to account for overhead - time for researching and sourcing, EMS shipping overseas, operating a site and managing inventory, possibly even some QC - but there is still an enormous amount of profit per piece sold, disproportionate to other market niches operating on the same principles.

I just received mine and for some strange reason they wouldn't fit. I had a scheduled appointment at my Indy and asked him just to throw them in and he couldn't!?!? He said there is no way they would fit. I have an e92, anyone else have that problem or tips?

Did you remove the black housing tube ? That's what I had to do on mine but I thought that was only a issue with 06 e90

I did not remove the housing. I was under the same impression that was not a problem on a e92.

Did you buy the E92 bulbs? Possibly you accidentally purchased the 10W e90's
