X3 Headlight swap
 
I am trying to swap headlights from an 07 X3 into an 06 X3 to get the angel eyes. The only problem is that the 06 X3 has no connection to power the angel eyes of the stock headlight.

I have an E46 as well and have used an umnitza aftermarket wiring harness to wire angel eyes into my accessory panel.

I could wire the 07 headlights the same way in the X3 but I am wondering about the power connection for the angel eye at the headlight. Will I require a connection that bridges the angel eyes and the wiring harness or can i wire the harness directly into the stock headlight.

I havent seen the halo connections for the e9x, facelifted E83 or the new x5 so if anyone has any experince with this please chime in.

Thanks in advance

Anyone that has info on a LED tail light swap for the X3, thats what I plan to move onto next.

Sounds like you may need a cable kit or new LCM. BMW usually offers retrofits for LCI headlight/tail lights.

I know for the E60 if you have an 04-06 5er and want to get 08 headlights & tail lights you need to buy a cable kit and a new LCM and then wire it up and get it reprogrammed. For 07 5ers you only need the cable kit and reprogramming.

Have you had any luck with the lighting upgrades on your X3? I wanted to update to '07-'08 tails, but am striking out. I am hearing there are almost no aftermarket suppliers for the X3, exhaust, lighting, nothing! It's not quite like modding my E46, that's for sure!
