Thumbs up Thanks for all the info on the DIY!

Scott!

The DIY worked like a charm! My Bi-Xenon function is alive and well! There were a few differences since my fusebox was a little different, but other than that, everything worked! For the sake of not rewriting everything I did, here's the thread I posted on e46fanatics with some pics PAGALM3's Bi-Xenon Retrofit Success. Again, thanks for all the help & answering all my question!

That's pretty wild...

It cost you $719.00 and it's a $700.00 option from the factory. Glad I got them from the get-go because I doubt they would ever work if I retrofitted them!

I only have a 12V relay with these pins:

87 - right bixenon
87 - left bixenon
85 - To Ground
86 - To pin 2

will this be ok? also my car is a RHD as I'm from London! please tell me the colour of pin 2 and 36 on the LCM, I assume I can tap into any of these?

Thanks!

Double check your relay or post a photo of the pins.

Pin 30 is the high current input lead and is ALWAYS present on a +12v relay; if you value your car, it MUST be fused.

If you are using a generic +12v relay, I'd guess you only have one 87 pin. It's fine to split the 87 lead and route it to each bixenon shutter.

You can use either pin 2 or pin 36 of the LCM to energize the relay coil (pin 86 on the relay). You only need one or the other. No idea what color the lead is, but the LCM pins are clearly marked in the carrier.

Yell if you need help.
