Today working on a 2006 model BMW E60 M5, we’re changing the halo bulbs out. This car came stock with 3500K yellow halo bulbs, it currently has about 6,000K 5 watt LED halos. But today we’re going to a 10 watt LED halo kit.
So we actually need to pull the lights out, remove both of those screws and see with the poor lighting in the garage but there are two eight millimeter bolts.
To wiggle the light out off without damaging any of your bumper or fender, you’ll need a six or nine inches to get down to those eight millimeter bolts.
It’s easier to unscrew it and then try to wiggle it out. With all the bolts, get the top out first and slide it towards the Ferrari and pull. There are two connectors on the back of the light. Get it out the bottom one a normal BMW connector, just press in on the tab and pull. And then the other one, you slide the huge thing the opposite way that it already is and it comes off.
Reach in and unscrew the high beam bulb, turn it counterclockwise and pull it out of the car.
Insert the bulb into the correct housing, turn it clockwise and it is done. Check out the little notches on the side of the bulb, there’s one squared off one, and then the other ones have a slanted edge the squared off one will go pretty much straight up. Maybe a little to one side, if you get in there with flashlights, you’ll see, line it up, push it in, turn it and plug everything in the seat that large connector inside the light, there’s plenty of room reinstall your bright bulb.
Lift the light up, install it in the car. With the 6000K 10 watt halo h7 led bulbs, it’s pretty much the same case same color temperature as the stock-car VG 2’s xenon bulbs.
They’re definitely brighter and both the stock bulbs, and the previous 5 watt halos so good upgrade definitely to do on the car. It is a little time consuming and difficult to pull everything out but if you’re patient and take your time you’ll get a great looking product.
