The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up.

LCI Upgrade to lights?

Another CIC upgrade question. I have a 05 645 that I just did the CCC to CIC upgrade with. Had Mike of BPMsport put it in and get most of the programming done. He tells me that in order to have the angles function as daylight running lights that I need the newer light control module. They can be had cheep enough on ebay but I am curious if they will make my non led blinkers and such function ok? Also, curious where the lighting control module is located? Is it under the hood/easily accessible, or something tricky like under the battery in the trunk or whatnot?

Here's a link to the LM2 upgrade. It will give you all of the details you need and no upgrading to the Light Module 2 will not affect your current pre-LCI lighting

It's under the drivers side under the trim panel below the steering wheel.

LED's

And a guy could put in the led front turn signals I am assuming w/o trouble then too, or are those plug and play regardless?

So, I have a 2007, how hard is it to get the AE as the DRL? Who sells the whiter AE?

The LCI lights are not plug and play.

They need coding or resistors to avoid errors, and a wiring harness needs to be made with diodes for the front lights.
