Are you sure? I've seen plenty of LCIs where only the inner lights are on as DRLs.

It's possible.

One thing I can tell you is you're going to hate the light output if you're keeping the stock housings. Oncoming traffic is going to hate you too.

True that... My mechanic was my best man in my wedding. I convinced him to get his wife a 328. We get together every once and a while and spend the day detailing our cars.

You know, I've driven LCI e90s and the wheels didn't feel as nice and leathery as mine... They were indeed leather, but they did feel more like plastic.

Angel Eye Installation

There's an access panel behind the headlights. You need someone with small hands to put the LED bulbs in the slots. It's very easy.
