  1. Sure. No luck yet though!

    E60 LCI LED side light bulbs

    Looks great. Which kit did you use?
  3. Would that be in the main harness that plugs into the headlight unit?
  4. Hey lads, Last week I noticed that on the passenger side of my car (e60 LCI with halogens) one of the angle eye rings was a lot dimmer than the other one. It didn't bother me too much as I had an LED upgrade kit ordered and figured that the stock halogen bulb was just on the way out. However, I fitted the new LED kit today and the same ring is still a lot duller than the one beside it. Any ideas? Cheers.

    Haha, yeah I'm one of those people! Cheers for the info. I'll just stick with HIDs I think!

    E60 LCI LED side light bulbs

    Cheers for the info. Yeah, I didn't expect them to look like the modern DRLs. That's the dream . I've 5000k HID's fitted and just wanted something to match up with them like yourself. Out of interest, how are you finding the LEDs? hard to fit?

    E60 LCI LED side light bulbs

    Sorry for hi-jacking but don't really want to start another thread on the same subject.. I've an LCI with halogens and would like to upgrade the stock BA9S/H10W bulbs to LED. I tried simply removing the stock bulb from the cone-shaped holder with an LED one but for some reason the LED wouldn't light up so it looks like I'll need to buy a full LED unit. Just wondering if this is the one to go for? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-No-Error-BMW-5-Series-E60-E61-LCI-CREE-LED-20W-Angel-Eye-Halo-Ring-Light-Bulb/202345270414?fits=Plat_Gen%3AE60&hash=item2f1cb7cc8e:g:rPUAAOSw1SJbe69i Or are there any better/brighter alternatives? Thanks.
  8. That's perfect. Thanks a lot!
  9. That would be great actually if you could let me know the module and whats needed to code because I'm planning on LED fogs next. I'll give changing the polarity of the wires a try too. Thanks, bud.
  10. Sorry guys, I've recently dived into the rabbit hole that is the LCI e60 angel eye bulb. After doing some research I discovered you could remove the OEM H10W bulb from the cone shaped holder instead of having to buy a whole unit, and just replace the bulb. So off I went and bought some 10 watt H10W led bulbs thinking the LED's would freshen up the front of the car. However, after nearly losing my hand removing the OEM bulb unit and removing the old bulb and installing the new LEDs I discovered they would not light up. I'm assuming this has something to do with the resistance or something? The seller assured me they were CANBUS bulbs and would work fine but alas, here we are. So my question is, has anyone bought H10W bulbs that actually work, or am I resigned to buying a whole LED unit? Cheers.

    Headlight adjustment problem.

    Thanks guys, getting it manually adjusted at the weekend. Any idea where to start looking for the reason the leveller wheel beside the light switch isn't working?
  12. Hey guys, I've recently bought an LCI e60 with halogen headlights that comes with the manual light leveller next to the light switch. Problem is the leveller doesn't adjust the headlights at all and they're constantly stuck on the lowest setting, illuminating only a small bit of the road. They guy I bought it of mentioned that he got new headlights fitted as the old ones were cloudy so I'm thinking maybe the connection for the leveller wasn't put back in or something? Any one have any idea where it's located or how to check? Thanks.

    e60 iDrive flickering.

    Thanks a lot for the info. I'll get BMW to look at it and go from there. I've found a site on Google that repair your CCC once you send it to them and they post it back and it only costs 250 or so which isn't too bad.

    e60 iDrive flickering.

    Thanks for the reply. Sounds expensive to replace, any ideas on how to determine if that indeed is the problem and how much roughly I should be paying for a new unit if so? Thanks.
  15. Hey guys, Today I pulled in to fill up the tank and when I started the car after doing so, the iDrive screen flashed on and off with lines through it and made a sort of re-boot sound. This continued on a loop the entire 15 minute drive home with nothing working (radio,cd,aux) just the screen remaining black with the intermittent flash of the idrive screen before going back to black. I've gone back out to the car after it being off for about an hour and started it up and it's working perfectly again. This has never happened before. Any idea what the culprit could be? Thanks.
