It can be done with the wheel on, with the wheel pointed at it's limit, but it is very difficult to see what you are doing. There is an access panel to the light assembly inside the wheel well, 2 plastic turnlocks at the outer edge release the panel and allows you to pull it out of the way.

Agreed. I just completed this mod and I have to say with wheel off the task is much simpler. The location of the AE assembly is far more recessed than the photos would suggest. You really need to get in there to be able to see where the screws are located. Once out, the job is a breeze. Drilled the holes exactly as in the photos and the bulbs came out without any struggle.

Hi, looks like you live in Atlanta area. I am in Tampa and regularly go to Atlanta area on business. Is there any way I can see you Z4? I bought 2008 Z4 3.0i and wanted to improve my dull angel eyes and your method seems to be my cure?

Thanks,

Anyone come across any decent Cree led ba9s bulbs that are not too high wattage and fire the light sideways, for use in AEs? Something like 10-20W?

I bought some cheap 20W halogens today, and while they are better, I still want my halos brighter and whiter.
