E65 Predator Ice

So I installed my predator ice tonight and although the install was more tedious than I had expected, the effect is significant. The car looks sexy as hell but now I need the HID foglights to match. I'll try to post some pics of both day and night......feeling kinda lazy after that install. In your face TXSTYLE.....I told you! haha

I spoke with Umnitza and they offered to replace my units if checking the harnesses reveals no problems. I am also going to try and reset the computer by unplugging the battery overnight. Please stand by.

I dont have a blinking light? I installed the predator ICE a few days ago. It just says that there is a light malfunction when you start the car up, then it goes away. I figure its cause the ICE is LED so the resistance is less than that of a incandescent bulb, so the computer thinks the bulb is blown.

I wouldnt unplug your battery overnight. Plan on making a trip to the dealer if you do that...

Yeah my interior led next to the headlight switch continuously blinks when I turn on the headlamps....it does not however when I just turn on the eyes or fogs. (it doesn't blink for the first 5 or 10 seconds but then blinks non-stop as long as I keep the headlights on) I'm thinking it may have something to do with the heatsink falling off during the install. It was loose apparently when I got it so I may be dealing with a bad connection.

What is wrong with unplugging the battery? Will it screw stuff up?

Fixed my light!!! Turns out a clip wasn't seated properly. Easy 5 min fix. Eyes look amazing.....The lights aren't super bright, but on a 7 series any brighter would border on ghetto. I love the look and will be installing my HID fogs soon. Pics to follow.
