Plug and play solutions has its limits.
That being said as you can see we did our best to provide a really good solution for a good price.
To completely fix the dim problem you will have to do a custom headlight change which will cost you around 900$

Can we get a picture of the bulb itself, or is it exactly the same shape as the factory one?

Also, is this going to have a blinding effect on other motorists? One of my friends has either LED's or HID's in his and it looks like he has his high beams on when hes driving behind you.

You never said what it does to not get codes. Is it just a resistor?

What is all that crap? I asked on the other post if it had an external box that I would have to shove into the housing and you said "no just the LED bulb...plug and play". That looks to be more than just a bulb. No thanks. Not worth screwing with my AHL.

I agree, this is a bit misleading. Before you post a picture and it's just the bulb with a heatsink on the back. Now you come back with all these other boxes that have to attach to it. I think I'll stick with halogen for now.

I'm also very disappointed Mike. I was under the impression this was a direct bulb only replacement. I have no interest in jamming this in the already cramped headlight box. Can you pm me so I can cancel my order ?

WTF. I also thought this was a bulb only solution, hence why myself (and others) in the initial thread queried the code defeating/heat dispersing properties of this new solution.

I'd also like to cancel if that's the case. I already have one of these CREE units with the ballasts, bought for cheap off eBay several months ago. They look identical.

Sorry for the misunderstanding here.
When i said it is plug and play i meant all you have to do is change the bulb.
You do not have the change the arc of the angel eyes or anything in the headlights.

As for the resistors, the plug and play solution will not work without resistors.

the resistors are tiny by the way and are not hard at al to fit in a 3 series or 1 series. We have tried both and i cant see where this might be a problem for anyone

Will post pictures soon, you will be pleasently surprised

Those are few pics of the installation process (the whole process takes less than 5 minutes)
I will be sending a detailed pdf for customers who purchase the angel eyes but this is just for you guys to see how easy it is

I guess I'll just leave this for 3ers. The 1er headlight assembly is cramped and I don't want to risk AHL failure because of some resistors floating around the headlight compartment.

Not at all.
We installed yesterday to a 1 series.
All you have to is get a 2 side 3m tape and tape the resistors to the back of the housing you are not cramming the resistors inside.
you are making a big deal out of nothing. just wait for some feedback for the 1 series owners before being so negative about a very good product.
The 3 series have enough space to put the resistors inside, the 1 is different you need 3 m tape to tape it to the back of the housing. I will post pics once i have a volunteer.

for the 1 series you are not putting the resistors in the housing.
you use a 3m tape and put the resistors on the back of the black cover
