Will also give him the peace of mind that ordering more in might just be a very good idea for his wallet!

Guys I'm going to run this list for a week to start off with, it's very important that we don't delay in getting the numbers to him because we need get a price agreed. Good progress so far in a short space of time.

Monday week I will be presenting the list to Stefan and we will work something out on cost.

The rest of you Halogen F30/F31 owners get your name on the list, you may not have this opportunity in the UK again!!

We will phase the halogen out together!

Get your names down guys!!

I personally prefer the design of LCI LEDs rings and quite like the eyebrow turn indicators too.

But, i can't ignore the price of these xenon replicas.

Mate i think 55W 6000k HID bulbs from HIDS4U are brighter than oem xenon in my opinion.

I was waiting right next to a F30 with xenons at the traffic light the other night and the light output on the road of my car seemed brighter.

But, his car light has superior cutoff line.

6000k are a chavvy blue colour! Factory are 4150k which have a bit of yellow in them but it is the colour that outputs the most light, if you want pure white get 5000k

No!!! Philips Diamond Vision halogen bulbs give chavvy blue colour with only 5000k temperature.

But, the 6000k HID bulbs with 55W ballasts produce pure white light like LEDs. Believe me.

I know pics don't do justice. 1 2 3 4

I've had all three and 6000K is definitely blue. 5000K is the best balance of brightness and colour.

Teastons right, 6k hids has a hint of blue as I had them in one of my previous cars.

As for these units, it looks like youl keep the standard halogen setup minus the halogen drl which will now be replaced with the led rings

55W 5000k gives a little yellow colour on the road. I didn't like them and returned.

Then the sellers/manufacturers labelling was incorrect!

Marginally OT, but does the MY2017 330i M Sport come with LED headlights as standard? Having a debate about this elsewhere, and the BMW configurator & brochures seen to contradict each other.

If they're halogens I might be joining you....


EDIT: yes, they're LED's confirmed elsewhere.

Spoke with stefan again today. He is waiting on word back from Depo, they are slow in responding.

Stefan will be doing prices in units of 5.

So we will be getting an even better price with every 5 names on the list.

We would like to see at least another 5 people on the list so get your names down guys

The beam level motor, it just pulls off your current headlights and will snap onto these ones.
