E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: '08 128i Sport Pack/6MT
H7 Bulb Installation

Hi-
I have a driver's side high-beam/daytime running light bulb out on my '08 128i Sport Package. It takes a non-xenon H7 and just looking to see if anyone can point me towards a step-by-step DIY? I Haven't been able to find one doing some cursory searches. I changed a few bulbs on my previous E46 without too much of a problem, but eyeballing my 128 makes me think it's a tad bit more complex? I have an appt to take it in to my trusted inde shop but would rather do it myself if it's easy? btw, my car is under CPO but bulbs are exempt! Just thought I'd add that..a bit disappointing.

Thanks in advance!

There's a nice little DIY guide on page 125 of your owner's manual.

Thanks very much! I ended up getting in done for me (in the interest of time/not looking quite as easy as my E46). $48 out the door wihich I didn't think was too brutal..and this was even at a dealership. Got a wash out of it as well.
