No, the E65 does not need load resistors.

It is a parking lamp, not the low beam. On newer models, the angel eyes are monitored because they are the DRLs.

I have an 06 760li and I'm wanting to use the angel eyes as drl's like alot of the new BMW's. Is it possible to use the newer BMW bulbs to replace mine or do the newer cars not use bulbs. Basically I'd like something as bright and white during the day as the new cars. Any suggestions ?

You will need to get them programmed to be able to use them as DRL's.

Ya I figured I could get them programmed up to use as drl's or just turn them on when I get into the car but I need to know which bulbs to buy first.

Ok I finally am getting the left angel eye fixed. Got a set of 12W BMWLED and the kit includes what looks like 2 heat sinks per side and bulbs that are set in a fancy looking aluminum ridged housing.
So there are two sinks with wire going out to bulb. Then there is a pigtail with small and large connector.
Where do these get hooked up?
May let an independent do it as bumper needs to be dropped on the 750 -06. And he can do some service at the same time. And replace other bulbs.

The high beam flash on my car is the only function for the inner light. May be the drl as well but not set on mine. What bulb is it as it seems so dull, I would like to switch it to a brighter bulb at the same time.

@4bimmers, these kits should be plug and play. When you take your old angel eyes out, the connectors will go to the replacement ones. Use the guide provide on the first page to figure out which bulb your high beams take.

angel eyes for all E65 E65 up to year 2008 are 100% fully plug and play, but some angel eyes will require an extra resistor/ballast.

Does anyone have a comparison of all the different bulbs for Angel Eyes? I have an '06 e65 and one of the angel eyes has gone out. I would like to replace both sides with LED's but I don't want to get the brightest LED's that I've seen. I think there are some that are so bright they won't look good on my car. So, where can I see an intensity chart for these LED options?

Thanks folks.

.... and. Also, be careful with front lamp washer jets. It is quite easy to break them while moving the head lamps forward. Better to unscrew the jets and push them back-down. Then push the head lamp forward. Anyway, the designer of these front lamps should be hang by his balls and kicked in his as..... Same about air filter replacement .... another idiotic design by BMW. Cheers

Hey everyone just bought my self my first BMW. Its a 2002 BMW 745i. I would like information on the best angel eyes to buy. I have been reading and I think there are bulbs I can buy to replace the existing angel eye bulbs? Also is this a hard task to do? Also would be interested in a full led package for the entire interior any help will be greatly appreciated.
