    Fitting LED bulbs

    Put in on the bulb then slide the collar down to lock in place. The little "arms" either side might need bending a little so they fit for them to grip into the headlight I will look to see if I have any pictures. I may have already posted on here when I fitted mine!

    I have front LED indicators now too and also have done the reverse ones. I have to say I had no issues on swapping the reverse ones but I just coded them all off anyway and like I say had no issues. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    No I didn't think it was a big job at all. Granted you need small hands to get in the small hole in the wheel arch but where there is a will there's a way! If the space is an issue its easy enough to take the wheel off and a few bolts to take the wheel arch plastic off you have loads of space then. Dont forget to code off the warm and cold monitoring Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Welcome. Granted its a bit of a pain in the arse but it's worth the effort. I will try and post some vids at night to see the results, but likely to to a delay before I can get them uploaded Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    I would say the best bulbs are the HLXG, but for me they o ly worked in my Full Beams. My car seams VERY picky what it will accept before shutting the lights off all together. I fitted a set of these into a friends F30 and had absolutely no issues at all. They came with a canbus module on board but like I said I had already coded out this issue so was no use to me, assuming it worked. What finally worked for me in the Main Beams was the Novsight. They are almost as bright as the HLXG even though they are both 10,000lm and 6k. Don't forget to get a few sets of the holders too. The factory ones are way too small and just not worth the messing with cuts etc to get the to hold the new bulbs in place. They need to be slightly bent on the parts that hook into the headlight as I found one side would lock and the other kept missing. I'm a few months in now using them. I have to say hands down one of the best modifications I have done in terms on bringing on the age of the car and improving the lighting issue you get with the pathetic stock halogen bulbs.

    To be honest they are cheap enough. Even if you haven't done anything to your full beams I would highly recommed throwing them in there Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    I will share my processes of course. Took me long enough to resolve my issue with the bulbs. But I think this is slightly different to Barboots original post. https://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/136404-2011-f10-led-upgrade/ That's where I started posting my original issue so can put on there. I'm not a fan of Hijacking a post! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    2011 F10 LED Upgrade

    Right. This mess has now been sorted! After many different attempts with LED's I have now found a combination that works (for me anyway) This was the before with Halogen bulbs. These are actually Osram Night Breakers 150%. These are the new LED bulbs that my car seams to accept. I have been through many sets which as you can see from the begining part of the thread would go on and off for approx 30 seconds then stay off. You will need to change the annoying metal brackets that hold the H7's in place. The ends need to be quite wide to allow the LED's. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    I did the same with mine but changed them to LED bulbs instead. I used BimmerCode from the mobile. Took 5 mins tops and all good now! Turning off the cold and warm monitoring on each of the bulbs. Before with the Halogen bulbs After with the LED Fitted. Main beams also changed to Leds

    2011 F10 LED Upgrade

    Hi all! This has been an ongoing project of mine and I am looking at defeat I have been through many sets of led bulbs. Used error canceller and bought the BimmerCode app to turn off the warm and cold start monitors still to no effect. The bulbs light, after a 30 seconds or so the goes off and instantly back on. This happens approx 3 times then stays off throwing the bulb out error and the light stays off until you turn the lights off and back on again. The video is too big to post on here so will look at perhaps uploading to YouTube. On the beam lamp I have also tried between bulb and LED with the same effect. Any help would be appreciated as I'm at the end of the road with it now!!!

    Radio switches 1-8

    I think it's a great feature. I have a few for contacts the rest are shortcuts like wide screen for the DVD player and the journey computer to see what the MPG for the trip is.
