2003 330i angel eye install problems
 
Hey guys,

This morning it was beautiful weather outside and I had a few hours before work so I thought hmmm let me install the Umnitza Angel Eyes I just had sent to me from Modbargains. So as I went through the installation not only did my friend give me the wrong Torx bit but also when I tried to close up the headlight housings they dont want to properly close, so my question is what is the proper way on a 2003, 330i sedan to attach the rings so that they do not arch up when I put the housings on? PS Ive already checked the fastm website, so any other help?

Thanks in advance, hopefully I don't flip out and throw these things into traffic.

That happened to me too. I had to use a drimmel tool and shaved off a bit off of the bezel - black plastic piece.

I used a dremel on mine too - however, one instruction set I saw said that you don't have to press the angel eyes all the way back to the 'click' point - just push them on as far as you can while keeping them vertical... and they won't fall off.
