E90 2005 Angel eyes?

Hi all,

I spent quite a lot of time researching how to get angel eyes in my 320d from 2005 (E90) and I'm simply not sure exactly what to do. I asked a BMW dealer who claimed that it'd never be the same as the headlight in the new models (quite an annoying answer, as that wasn't the question!).

Since it's a 05' car, I'm quite sure that's it's not LCI -> thus, I'm not sure if I should replace the entire headlight, or if it's possible at all to just replace the 'bulb', or is that a poor solution?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Post a picture of your headlights.

If you have halogen for that model year, you need new housings.

You will need to replace the entire headlight assembly with a third party solution to get proper projector lense housings with HID bulbs/ballasts and the Angel Eye rings.

Yea you have to replace the entire housing.

Check out DEPO housings.

User fishcake321 on eBay sells pre-modded sets with upgraded angel eye rings.
