Garage List
LCI Halogen Bulb Reflector/Cover

So I just got one LCI headlight (the other on it's way), and I just noticed that it doesn't seem to have a cover over the low beam bulb.

If you can see here


Or even on these


Both of them seem to have some sort of cover over the low beam bulb. It also turns out that my old pre-LCI Halogens seem to have this cover too, while my LCI's don't. Would it be possible to reuse this cover from my old halogens? Does it snap onto the bulb or something? Any help appreciated

I have lci halogen headlights and I donīt have that bulb cover either.
I found out that only US model headlights have that cover and EU models doesnīt have.
I am not sure is that bulb cover integral part or not, I would be interested in to get those if its possible to install afterwards.

nope, US OEM LCI halogen headlights dont have that cover either. Might be a pre-lci thing

The European head lights on E90 LCI do not have anti glare cover/bulb hat. The H7 bulb that fits in to that housing (both low and high beam) have a blackened top and that is why you do not need a anti glare bulb hat/ cover.
