Night pics are always difficult because the headlights often look like a big blur of light. you really need a DSLR camera, a tripod, and a very good location with correct lighting.

Excellent job with the video Gtrain. The 128i is a little more of a challenge to get the back cover off on the passenger side than the 135 but it can be done and is well worth it when installing the LUX H8 V3.

You have two options, one is to double side tape it the metal xenon housing that others have done.


Or you can slide it underneath the slot under that black piece between the bulb location and the metal xenon housing

No at the bottom in the middle where you can see the motor but ballast attached to the cover of the headlight.
