X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

'13 x^ led fog lights?

Has anybody purchased/installed LED fog light bulbs in an X6 2013 3.5x? I want to change out the standard bulbs and have found some LED bulbs that claim to not need any additional wiring harness or other mods. Would like to hear from an owner who has done this or knows that this is complete rubbish.

It's annoying that the M Sport Package AND FULL LED Headlight kit doesn't upgrade your fog lights as well. JMHO, but the car looks silly when both sets of lights are on in it's current state.

-Thanks

Agree, but what type of bulb s it H11 or H3 ?

Just purchased a X6 5.0 Performance Edition. Want to change the fog lights to HID color bulbs but can't find any reference in the manual about bulb type.

Are they H11s?

Fog light H11 bulbs

Ok, I figured out the fog lights are H11 bulbs. Replaced stock bulbs with Hoen Xeon match bulbs. They look better but don't match the factory Led headlights perfectly. I'll keep looking, anyone try H11 LED with load resistors?

Thanks

H11 bulbs from

with ballast / converter cables, gave NO BULB errors.

Bulb temp isn't perfect match, but looks mutch better than stock fog lights.
