It works on the pre-LCI. I just sold my '09 X5, but it had the LUX and it worked fine.

Easy. Remove a cover that's accessible under the bonnet. Unscrew old bulb, disconnect power, connect to LUX, line up bulb, and close things up.

The only thing I noticed is if you don't have DRL, you need to set the switch to Auto or it will flicker on startup due to the bulb check.
