Hi Guys,

Please forgive me if this is in the wrong section, or has been covered before - I'm new to the forum and am getting used to the different sections and search nuances!

I'd like to know if it is possible to retrofit the auto-lights to my E46 2001 330Ci.

I'm coming from a Range Rover background, you may know that 2002-2005 uses entirely BMW tech for ALL of the cars systems. I found that on the early models it was possible to replace the rain sensor with a later version that incorporates light sensor, light switch (with Auto setting) and LCM (from an X5) - this would give you fully functional auto lights. One downside is that the LCM contains VIN & Milage info so a tamper dot will be displayed on the binacle.

Has anyone done this on the E46? Is it the same theory? Just those components?

Thanks in advance,
