Right I know Jayxx83 has done this And with a few texts I understand it's not a difficult mod to do and costing £20 from BMW seems good value, but has anyone else do this and can they do a step by step guide

i did this, with bulbs from ultraleds.co.uk..very similar to the e90 look

it was really simple - pull out the two covers from one side using a flat blade screwdriver, replace the bulbs and replace the covers..

my covers were broken so I just bought two new ones for a few £ from the dealer..be careful when prying them out as the clips are quite fragile..

that was it..twist the bulbs so that they reflect as u want them too (since they are led and bulbs only on one side). they used to flicker a few times when locking and unlocking the car, but that was about it.

hope this helps

is it not possible to only buy the bulbs only from the E90 or even the Lexus and clip it in?

Had mine on for nearly 3 years now and no problem. The lighting coverage is nice and even as the reflectors are designed for the LEDs. Bit OCD I know but adds to the overall look lol.

Not a direct fit. Dremel is your friend. You'll need to do a bit if fiddling with the wires to, I used the proper e90 connectors when I did mine.

You need to cut a lot out of the stock plinth. You also need the E90 connecting pins. Cut your stock wires, connect the new wires and silicone the new units into place. It is an extremely tight fit and you can just get them flush. The connectors will bend slightly when flush but just make sure it's all soldered up tight and black taped up.
