Can even look at the tis & it tells you what wire
Needs to change Pin positions .


Here is an LM II out of an 07 7series
Check out this item I found on eBay: http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?nav=item.view&id=181002069899

Totally different plug.
Black is 02, white is lm2.

At the top you can see the difference in the plug, they are different.

Looking at the picture closer , the upper area
Your talking about seems to have a reflection
That makes it look different .

I am on my phone , so I'll have to take a
better look at the pics on my comp screen .

The plug is the same size, the upper plastic slots are at different spacing. I could not get my plug to seat into the white one, I had to buy another to get my blinker, and back brake light to work.

Cccp, the white plug housing comes off with two hex screws and looks like it could be swapped. A pin needs to be moved via TIS.

Personally the LCM controls all of the car and I am not willing to fry my modules to swap it out.

YES i KNOW WHO MADE THAT STATEMENT ABOUT THE MP3 & I'M SURE EVERY 1
ELSE KNOWS ALSO . AS FAR AS I WAS TOLD THE DEALER SHOULD UPDATE &
PROGRAM EVERYTHING IF YOU HAVE THEM INSTALL THE LMII . I DON'T KNOW
WHAT THEY WILL CHARGE YOU BUT I'M SURE IT IS NOT CHEAP . I DO KNOW
YOU HAVE TO ASK THEM FOR THE FEATURE SHEET TO TELL THEM WHAT YOU
WANT SET TO ACTIVE ON THE LIGHTS , SUCH AS BLINKING WHEN ARMED &
DIS-ARMED , FOLLOW ME HOME & WHATEVER OTHER FEATURES YOU WANT .

Finally decided to update my Angle Eyes...

I finally got the energy and the time to tackle my "angle eyes" on my 06 750Li.

Pulled the bumper... Glad I did, becuase there would have been no way I would have been able to pull that silly bulb out on the bottom of the headlight housing, not with my hands anyways. What a silly place to have access to a light bulb. Awesome German engineering. ha ha...

The whole job took about 2 hours...
Taking the bumper off is not that hard... Taking the headlights out once the bumper was off took me longer ..
I had a hell of a time figuring how the heck the electrical plugs came off the lamp housing. Hint, the big plug slides sideways in an upward direction first, then straight out.
Once I figured out the left side, the right was a piece of cake.

I just pulled the bulbs for the DRL... I get the highbeam error for both sides at startup, but then it goes away. Highbeams still work fine on the HID's

Pics of the job in progress are attached... good times :-)

Laterz...
