Cool 5W Angel Eyes upgrade to LED!

Just finished up with the 5W Angel Eyes upgrade. Hope I do not experience any problems.
I think they made a big improvement to the car. Now I have to install the LED interior bulb kit I ordered weeks ago and have not gotten around to.

Jon-

Can you post a link to the bulbs that you purchased. I need to replace one of my bulbs that are out and those look brighter than what I have in my car.

Thanks

How do you turn on the AE without the head lights? I did a conversion, I think 20W and while the color is white now they are no where as bright as yours appere to be.

You will have to get your car "coded" to do that.

I got mine coded to...

* Close all windows and "sunroof" while holding down the button on the key fob.

* Disable to long I-Drive warning message at start up

* Angle eyes only without the driving lights

I see your in Maryland...try this guy.

For an 05, you will also need to upgrade your light module to an LM2. Prior light modules do not support AE as DRLs.

See this post for instructions.

Looks like you got them installed without having to take the bumper off as well...??

Cool

Yes, I am a GSM at a large Buick-GMC-Mazda dealership. I asked our best tech to put them in for me. It took him about 20 minutes because of the extremely limited space to work with. The bumper did not have to be removed.
FYI=(For Y'alls Information)-These only look like this with the car sitting (not in gear) with the parking lights turned on. These are on when the DRLs are on too but the DRLs drown them out considerably. I am not willing to spend much to have these be coded to be my DRL.s. Even though the local BMW service manager is a very old friend I grew up with and used to be our Service Director where I work now. I could probably get him to do it for free except someone posted the 2005 would need to be modified. I am simple and quick and cheap.
I have Burger Motorsports 10MM & 12mm spacers on the way too.

Changing angel eyes do not require the bumper to be removed, the best tool in the bag is small hands.
