Ok I am a little confused about how to get angel eyes on a 06 e90 im guessing they didnt come stock on my wifes car. Ive got them on my e65 but this car seems to be a little more to it then just swaping a bulb. Can anyone give me some links to a good set of headlights. Also educate me on what is pre lci, what do I have, and what do I need.

You might have to update the lighting control board I thinks its the FRM
to a FRM 2 or 3.

This has nothing to do with having angel eyes. People upgrade the FRM to retrofit "Welcome Lighting," which is when the angel eyes and various other lights illuminate when unlocking the car.

Pre-LCI refers to E9x models manufactured before 2009. Models manufactured after are referred to as LCI, Life Cycle Impulse.

It's basically a refresh of the current chassis, mainly cosmetic changes....hood, headlights, taillights, aero packages, interior trim on cup holders, volume knob, etc.

If you're wife's car was not equipped with xenon headlights from the factory, pre-LCI models do not have angel eyes. LCI halogens however, do come with angel eyes.

Most people upgrade to DEPO housings. They are decent quality but the projector bowl could use a better design/manufacturing process.

If you do go with DEPOs, make sure you get the set already modded with the LED angel eyes. There are the stock versions with 4 LED rings. And the modded ones with 68 LED I think.

Most people buy from fishcake on eBay. It's fishcakexxxx, xxxx being some numbers I can't recall.
