Is anyone try this already on e90 LCI (you can see installation information on previous link, what you need to do to successfully mounted inside)

So would the general consensus be that these are the way to go for AEs under $100? With a E90 LCI, do I need to go with the $70 20w ones then?

I am very pleased with the result. One thing to mention for easier install it it helps to take the wires off the post. If you look inside the housing, the wires that go from the H8 are bunched up and sit on the post just below the socket. I could not lign up/position properly the bulb until I pulled the wires off the post(just pull towards the front of the car, comes right off, they will just hang there). Will see how they hold up, love so far, did I mention that? Let me know what you think.





Could you do me a huge favor since we basically have the identical car...?

Please post a link to the exact bulbs you purchased...the site is confusing enough.

Also, if I'm not mistaken; you installed yours directly under the hood, not behind the fender...correct?

Thanks a katrillion!

I ordered 20w ones for e92, if you read fitment, it includes e90 lci. And yes, I did install from under the hood, took me about 20-30 min per side and I am literally a blood related to my car now

Still confused

The website is still very confusing. I have a 2011 E90 LCI with Halogen lights - which product do I get?

There are three different products with the same product description and different pricing?

Do you have a e92? If so, how was fitment and installation? Notice any thing "bad"?

Hahaha, it'll do that to you. I scraped my hands up real nice last time I was in the headlight compartment.

It fits fine, installation was a pain because its such a tight space. Played around with it for 30 minutes until I gave end and called the girlfriend for help, she got them in so fast

I've been reading through this thread and I'm still confused on this as well.

Can someone clarify? The price on a couple of these is about $70 while in one of the links (the last one), it's only about $48. What's the difference?

I have an E92 2009 328xi Coupe, so my guess is any of these would work?

The main thing that's confusing me at least is that I have no idea what the difference is between the $70 kit and the $48 kit.

I bought the $59 kit (10w for pre-lci e90) and installed them last weekend. It looks great! Looks better than the original ones plus one side was dead on mine so.. Money saved and better look! thanks for the thread

It's also working auto dimming ? When xenon powers on, h8 must reduce output brightness; what about flickering ?

Gents,

Just ordered the 20W E92 LED Markers and they just did not fit as a few others have stated. There is a black plastic brace of some sort in the housing compartment. I couldn't get the large bulb to align with the female portion of the factory housing unit. Anyone find a way around this?

Here is a pic of the actual unit I was referring too. The new bulb as a whole just doesn't fit due to the presence of a piece of plastic bracing in the compartment we are working in. Unless someone has a technique that worked for them(?), I'm stuck.

This should work: http://www.nm-motorsport.com/acatalo...n_Fitting.html

I will be installing the same bulbs tonight as well. Good luck!
