    F10 halogens

    I had tried a number of LED headlight bulbs in replacement of the Halogens but found they didn't have enough light output. Granted they looked great but a little pointless when it came to nighttime drivingI fitted a set of Terminator HID and I have to say never looked back. Fantastic colour and most importantly no errors

    F11 2011 angel eyes bulb?

    It will have been heating up with the halogen and the condensation has slowly caused the board to fail. Glad you have it sorted mate. [emoji1360] Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    If you have a replacement get it in! I think I've been lucky. Never needed to code any of mine. Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    Water kills these! I'd check incase its found a new way in. I went through 3 of them! First 2 I was sure I had fixed it! 3rd was the charm Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    Likely its the TMS headlight driver module that needs replacing. You've not got water or condensation in the light have you? Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    Android Head unit replacement

    From listening from the standard head unit and then that from the android headunit via the AUX, is there a noticeable difference? Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    Interested in following this. I'm on the edge for buying one also but I've been looking at https://bmods.co.uk/ The one you have bought, do you have to use the AUX like most the others on the market? Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    F11 HID Upgrade

    Hi. Sorry for the delay! Re the metal bracket yes they are required and if I'm honest they are the trickiest part of the install, but not to say its a hard. I just found that the little metal wings needed a little bend to get them to hook into the headlight. Its very thin metal so bending by hand wasn't a issue. Like I said, I removed the wheel lining which was a matter of a few bolts and had all the space in the world to mount the ballast and get the bulbs hooked in. Now regarding the ballast, we fitted a set to a friends f30 and I'm 80% we didn't have to do any coding. The twin decoders on the ballast did the job to stop any errors or flickering. I've seen some that flicker during use or at a minimum when starting which we got none of. The reason I say 80% is before going down the route of HID i had tried EVERYTHING setting and EVERY set of led i could get my hands on but they either had errors or the brightness just wasn't enough. During this process I had used bimmercode to turn the hot and cold start monitoring off the bulbs. This wasn't to say it was a waste as I have a set of the LED in my full beams which work amazing as the full beam isn't a projector and being LED is instant for the likes of flashing people to give way etc! If that 20% uncertainty is putting you off don't let it, I wish I had gone straight to these or had someone do the trawling to find a solution sooner as the difference in driving is just simply night and day. No longer am I directed by candles in the night. Bimmercode was about £25 ish which is useful for a massive list of option depending on the year and spec of motor. Anything else just let me know and will do my best to get back to you soon as! Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    Nothing mate. Mine does have self levelling but no washers. Passed the MOT without issue. It did have the beam pattern slightly adjusted as I replaced a headlight due to a little water ingress on one light. Minor job Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    Yes other that a hole that you have to cut in the removable cover plate for the main headlight Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk

    Its possible to swap the bulb through the cat flap in the arch if your hands are small enough. It all depends where the ballasts are fitted as you need to unplug the bulb from the HID kit. The arch is very easy to take out 8/10 bolts and its out. Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
