What can i do to upgrade?

Post by stevei » Tue Aug 15, 2017 7:59 pm

I've recently bought a 2015 116i Sport.
My last car was an Astra GTC with adaptive xenons and were brilliant.
My 116 has just got the yellow halogens...What can i do to upgrade/enhance the lights (front and rear) ?

Cheers

Someone like EM Tuning can do a projector retrofit for you :thumbs:. Highly recommend him.

Change rears to led (simple bulb change), you could change the dipped beam to hid, hids4u do a set which are designed for reflector type lamps and I've used them for a couple of applications and they've been very good. You could leave the high beam as halogen and if you really want more light change the fogs for something like these

You could change the main beam to led which would be better than the halogens. These seem to be some of the best out there but the output is half what they say

FYI strictly changing dipped to hid without headlight washers and a self leveling system is an MOT fail but a friendly garage will probably ignore it for you.

Split the lights, install a projector, test, fine tune, test again, seal, fit, be happy.

In simple terms.
