    Hello people. New to the site and new to BMW's.

    I have just bought a 118d 58 plate and would like to get some hid xenon bulbs for the angel eyes to give a brilliant White effect rather than the dingy orange.

    I have been told that some kits can give you a warning light on the dash.

    I have seen lots of kits on eBay and would like to know what the best option is before I go on a spend spree!

    The 118 has the bi xenon upgrade hedlight upgrade already and think this will just set it off.

    Any thought or feedback will be great!

    Thanks,

    Hallamnet

    Looks like a good site! i have given them a call and they have quoted me £78 for the set.

    They have told me this will not give any errors on the dash and will be visible during the day and sunlight!

    Has anyone from the site bought these from this site?

    Hi people. Just to let you know I bought the LED Marker Kit from http://www.hids-direct.co.uk and they are quite bright. The inner ring really stands out but the outer ring does not.

    So I went out and got a H8 HID kit and this looks great but there is an issue. When the lights are on the off position, the lights are on, same with when you put the lights on auto lights. When you put the lights on sidelights, they just flash like a strobe.

    I have tried capacitors and warning canceller's but these do not stop it from flashing.

    Has anyone got any ideas how I can get this to work?

    If you do want some photos of the LED Marker kit, please let me know and i will forward some on to you.

    Thanks,

    Hallamnet
