Can you stuck photos up when you get it soreted?? I think you'll receive the bulbs before I do and I'm keen to see what it looks like.

Thanks

ok so all have arrived, i managed to break the back left number plate cover so i need a new one of them . Also he bulbs are shorted than i took out so don't fit

managed to get them in place long enough to get some pics but after thinking i may beable to just use some pliers to adjust that.

Apologies for the blurry images, my crap camera hates me not using flash in low light, not sure how to set it up manually.

Yes it is the e92 BMW ones. They are a lot deeper and larger so u will have to cut away a lot of your boot plinth but it is worth it. You also have to wire into the boot switch as per the original wiring setup. Very easy too me a couple hours most.

Make the car look so much classier as per the new bm and lexis models. Not too bright either like the eBay ones. Let me know if you need any more help. You will need 2 units and 4 pins from the dealer. I paid 17 for the lot.

I have some of these 36mm high power led's from my previous car, will give them a try over the weekend...

I have ordered from this US supplier in the past with great delivery times... They have eliminated the bulb out error in the v2.00
