Exclamation E90 LCI sedan with halogen headlights - PY24W to PSY24WSV

E90 LCI sedan with halogen headlights - Front turn signal bulb PY24W to PSY24WSV... Has anyone tried it? Does it work? I don't like the led options but want the clear look...

If you have an LCI, your turn signals are LED arrays. You cannot modify these with anything aftermarket without significant modification.

I have halogen headlights not xenon. The halogen headlight turn signals are a single bulb not the cluster of small led's that are found on the xenon headlights.

The LCI headlights, regardless of xenon or halogen, have LED arrays for turn signals.

There are 2 manufactures for the halogen housings, Valeo and ZKW. Unless one set has the LEDs and the other doesn't, you don't have an LCI. You would have a pre-LCI model

Not true, I have halogen turn signals on my 2011 LCI e90. Only the xenon headlamps have the cool looking LED array.

You can see the orange bulb in my signature picture.

I have the Valeo headlights on my 2011 LCI e90, it has the halogen turn signal bulb just as nerd boss said above. I'm just trying to figure out if the bulbs can be replaced with the chrome style bulbs and not throw a error code. Anyone!? I can't believe no one has tried this yet.

Those are regular halogen bulbs?

If so, you can replace halogen with halogen without error codes. The only thing different should be the coating on the bulb. And no coating will throw error codes.
