E87 Pre LCI -Angel eye LED

Post by mrc300 » Sun Sep 10, 2017 12:44 am

Hello all,

The OE bulb fitment for E87 pre LCI xenons is BA9S, what LED's have people replaced them with?

I'm after whiter (5000K) and brighter than OE, has anymore got any links?

Thanks,
130i (Pre LCI) LMB, Black leather, Pro nav and Xenons.

Did you have to do any modifications to make these fit?

Headlights look very very good.

Umm smithy? it's probably the light but that left wing mirror is looking a lot darker than the rest of the car. Have you had them resprayed at all?

Hi Twenny

Thank you.

It's a combination of the light and few massive trees across the road hanging over the street.

They look alright - however that car looks really familiar have you recently bought it - looks the same as a previous forum member roundasapound - she got banned for being really offensive so I guess your not her. But you could have bought her car?

Ahhh of course, that explains the faded bonnet and different colour wing mirrors.

I'm not here for social banter or guess who questions.

The OP asked a question and I answered.

The end.

Thanks for everyone's feedback.

In the EBay advert photographs what are the silver boxes?

To regulate and maintain a stable current to the LED's.

There are quite a few YouTube videos that explain how these work.
