There are a few pics of them on, on the commercial thread, but more pics the better! These are the best alternatives so far... IMHO the regular DEPOs look cheap and installing your own HID/LEDs can cause LOTS of problems!

Welcome to the forums! Here is some more info that ill transfer over to this post as it seems that a lot of people look at both.

The lights are DEPO Headlights. They are directly plug-n-play with existing E82/87 Halogen setups. I am unsure though if the E82 lights are the same as your E87? But you can find them here from a vendor on the site - http://www.**********s.com/Depo-Headlights-E82.htm

Below is what a recent member did to his DEPOs. He added the HIDs and LEDs to the DEPOs to enhance the look. The stock DEPO lights are marginal to say the least i.e. - low light output and dull.
Quote:
The HID's are- MTEC 6000k HID CONVERSION KIT 9006 H7 H11 880 893
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...ht_5949wt_1201

The AE LED's are T5 wedges
http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-SMD-LED-T...#ht_9328wt_984

Neither the HID's or LED's thew erroros and I did a check and came back good. I don't have any issues with pulsing or flashing from either.
I really need to get the orange side markers turned off

I cannot PM yet either but am still interested nonetheless. Are these still available? I read thru the thread and it was all going well and then got real sparse... is this all legit and all? I registered on the forum so I could inquire into this specifically, although being I'm a newbie to the 128 (I just picked it up today!) I am glad to be here.

Thanks for any info I might be able to glean.

Welcome to the forum. Looks like you are local and have the same car ('09 Montego with 6MT).

The beginning photos was a one time thing that was never seen through. (Don't know what happened...) However, as seen in the pictures above, a member took the time to purchase the DEPO units + LED's + HID's and they look great. They work with no errors.

Once you hit 5 messages PM him and he would be more than happy to tell you more about his lights.

Hi All, I just decided to mod my stock halogens on my 2008 128i.

Has anyone just bought the stock DEPOs with the HID kit and left the AE's alone without upgrade from **********s? Any pics? Does the current DEPOs still only have the 4 LEDs, creating the blob effect?

Any new info would be greatly appreciated!

Look over at my DEPO thread for an idea.
