Angel eyes conversion to LED

I uploaded the video to swap out the angel eyes if your E83 already has the factory option Xenon lights.

The stock bulbs were 10W, these are 12.5W and the cables are plug and play. No error codes.

Overall I'm really happy, but the newer model BMWs have EVEN BRIGHTER angel eye LEDs which I would have preferred for parity.

I went ahead and also purchased the eLight ultimate and have it working which is pretty cool. I just need to get the mirrors folding and then I'll do a follow on post with the whole shebang. The eLight module allows you to run your angel eyes as DRLs. Chris

Hi!
Great that you confirm the module allows for the angel eyes use as DRLS. Also in sutomatic light mode in the car right?

You're correct

Yes, the Angel Eyes run as DRLs with the lights are in Auto mode or Off (0) mode.

So pretty much they are always on now no matter what setting is used.

Thank you! Actually I tried scanner 1.4 but didn't work. I was looking for a NCS solution to avoid wiring the module but couldn't find anything diy on the web. Sounds like I'll have to buy the module...

I'll go for the Mtec v3 led (MT611). Expensive but seems that quality is here. Just afraid wasting money around..
