A colleague of mine has a Mini GP and has spent £399 at the local dealer to get the new LED daytime running lights fitted (had to barter on the price as they wanted in excess of £500 but he pointed out the special offer as these are new to market)
I've just come across them new for £235 and it says they're an easy fit - direct replacement for your existing fog lights.
Is this true?
I'm not mechanically or electronically minded, but if its a simple case of a couple of screws, plug, unplug etc, I might be inclined, especially with the saving over the dealer fit price.
Any had any experience of this? My Mini is only a week old so don't want to take any risks.
They are not an easy fit, unless you are very mechanically inclined - definitely not a screw and plug job. You need to remove the front bumper, run wiring through the engine bay/bulkhead and (scary bit) tap into one of the leads going to the BCU. Doing several things for the first time, it took me most of a day, a lot of that spent trying to get the bumper off.
And after all that, my kit was defective and the car had to go into the dealers for them to replace it all under the parts warranty! I imagine that bit is now sorted out.
- BUT the OBC on my 07' MCS does not show the ''Drl'' icon I settings menu, so the halo ring, will not function. - anyone knows how to solve this problem? maybe I need a software update for the car/OBC?
