LED Corners for E46 Facelift - JleviSW.com

Does anyone have these? Is the corner parking light delete necessary with these? How is the install?

I'm looking to get rid of the parking lights, I wouldn't mind having a white running parking light, but I'm assuming that's impossible. So it's either amber or no lights, right?

Thanks for the help

Nope you do not have to perform the corner delete mod with these, they are a pure xenon white which matches xenon headlights.

We provide full instructions which when followed take about 10 minutes per side.

hey Nick or Jon, i was reading that down the line LCM Failure can occur from the LEDs in the front corners. Is this true? i havent taken them off yet but ive been debating it. I'd like to get your opinion on it tho.

I've had them on my car over 2 years, and we've sold thousands of these kits, literally. No issues yet.

Where did you put the resistor? I'm looking everywhere and cant find a safe spot cause it heats up to 200*

If you look at our instructions, it shows you several places to safely mount the resistor. Best place is inside the fender.

jjr4884:

Where did you place your equalizers? I've looked at Levi's instructions and they recommend inside the fenders. However, I have a 330i Sedan and I only have the holes on the left side. Placing the equalizer on the side (left) with the holes seem fine but I don't have a clue where to place the equalizer on right side. Your help is greatly appreciated. Are you satisfied with your corner LEDs?

it's easy cause you have a facelift sedan. damn on my car you have to take out the headlights to do it. you can put them on the bumper reinforcement bar. that's where i put mines
