  1. I'm hoping someone can help me out. I've searched high and low but cant find the info I need. In short my car is pre-lci, heated, basic electric in beige, having hated this colour from day one I purchased yesterday what I was lead to believe black, pre-lci, headed basic electric also. All fine until it came to the plugs, big yellow is fine but I appear to have a rail of sockets under mine and a small square plug which I suspect if for the heating? The replacements dont have this and have a small plug hanging from them which I think is for the occupancy sensor. I'm pretty sure Ive been sold a pair of seats which aren't heated but need to confirm this before I send them back to the seller. Can someone check from the photos and confirm please. 1st pic is original seats, 2nd is replacement and 3rd is the car loom

    Seat swap issues (should of been easy!)

    No different colours and very different gauge of wire too. The seller has agreed to a refund now anyway its just infuriating I have to waste another 2.5hrs driving and about £25 in diesel to return them

    Thats what I thought, I fitted some to an e46 a few years ago. That is the only other wiring apart from the main yellow plug
  4. Hi ladies and gents Im an excitable new owner of a pre lci 535d and I love it. Only had it a couple of weeks but already been modifying. So far have fitted Style 128's, black grilles, carbon boot and bonnet badges, debadged boot and wind deflectors. I used to have an E46 330d and an E61 530d. Both manual and both Msports. As this is my first auto and the fact I intend on keeping her I thought it made sense to join up Hopefully a photo is attached

    E60 pre lci angel eyes - can you go white?

    Im having some coding done to my car on Saturday and on the phone the guy doing the coding told me something I had no idea of. Apparently the angles are only coded from the factory to run at 75%, a couple of taps on the laptop and they will run at 100% so combine this with some decent LED's and the results should be as close to an LCI as you can get without changing the whole light units

    Im getting confused. When pre-lci gets mentioned but people are showing links for adverts which specify LCI (2007 onwards) Are the angle bulbs not specific fit between the two?
  7. Before I start will apologise for asking this, I appreciate it has been asked many times but despite using the search, google and youtube I still cant find an answer that is applicable to my set up. Right in sort I've got an intermittent fault with my near side parking light. I whipped the lamp out but I cant find any obvious bulbs for the angel eyes apart from what I have tried my best to photo below. Ideally I want to fit something less yellow anyway but the priority for now is having a working nearside parking light. Can anyone either tell me what bit is which or if I've got it right, how the hell I remove the bulb. Ironicly I can fit a gearbox but not a bulb! Thanks in advance
  8. Thanks for response. Thats what suspended I needed as I cant see anything that looks like conventional 501 bulbs anywhere but equally I couldn't see anything in the housing that looked anything like that holder either. I was also a bit confused by what the little ballast is for that I have left hanging outside the light, there is another one inside too. I did question if I had some sort of aftermarket kit fitted in there already
