One of my Angel Eyes bulbs went out so decided to just upgrade both to LED. These are Cree LEDs. Took a pic at an indoor hand car wash place near me next to the L train. And Rocky my Boston Terrier puppy in the front seat ha.

Recent mod done. OEM BMW Aero Dynamic kit. Night and day! Gives it a sportier look (par with m package) and cuts down on the plastic trim bumper. Makes it complete now.

Ordered aftermarket first terrible quality and wasnít going to fit right by the uneven cuts the kit had and holes that didnít belong on it. Went the extra mile and ordered the OEM kit instead. Returned the aftermarket kit the next day Lol.

Is the aero kit a difficult install? What kind of costs involved for the kit?

I had mines professionally installed. It took them 5 hours according to them to install it. The kit I ordered was Original Bmw branded I ended up paying $900 total from an eBay seller. MRSP at Bmw was $1,500 so I did save. FYI Bmw does not sell the kit anymore itís discontinued which is why I purchased and glad on eBay one seller had it deadstock that they purchased back in 2007 but never installed it, it was sitting on their shelf for years lol. OEM kit is starting to get very hard to find. Not the aftermarket though. Paint was a separate $600 and the labor was $500. Total $2,000. But itís a professional job I got done. No cheap route. At the end if you do the cheap route it doesnít come out well or looks well either. I wanted it to be as if it came out from factory.

You can get the aftermarket one for $250 BUT the quality is not near the same or similar thatís for sure which was from Ebay as well. I ordered aftermarket first but Iím picky but I thought it was going to be similar but I wanted it to be perfect finish and the cut too align perfect as well and the aftermarket was not a perfect cut like the original Bmw one (perhaps the aftermarket quality one I purchased from that vendor wasnít good quality)?

FYI there is one only OEM Bmw aerodynamic kit 07-10 for $1,249.95. No one else has or carries it at this point. Unless another seller on eBay has a dead stock and sells it cheaper than that one seller.
