Hello,

thanks

Tbh, I would really stay away from HID kits on a E9x because if you don't get the correct ballasts that compensate for the lights out error, your foot well module is going to give up since it count's down the number of errors logged. After that, a new module will be required and that's not cheap.

Good luck mate. its a right chew on to get HID's to work on a E90.

I bought a set a couple of days ago, 100% guaranteed to work!!

I trial fitted them 1st, turned ignition on and no error codes up :)

Fully fitted them, turned ignition on, still no error codes...... started the car up BING!!!! error came up, i was gutted.

If you do find some that work, please let me know as the looked good fitted.

Hi Paul, were they no error guaranteed? are you sending them back to your seller?

Yeah, guaranteed to work,

Ive emailed a few sellers on the bay asking if they are 100% sure they will work on a E90 and everyone said they cant be 100%.

Guess what the guy said?? "The reason they didn't work on your car is because its remapped" :confused :rofl

I sold them on to a mate with a new Passat, they worked in his. But i could of got a refund

Wise choice mate...would have eventually caused you bigger problems in the long run.
