    Drivers side angel eyes not working.

    Bought my e90 330d today what an amazing car!!! Took a 2 hour drive to London in my e46 318i with the wife an I drove the 330d back and she drove the 318i. Now I've got one problem. Before I bought it and and struck a deal everything was fine but when I was about an hour and half home with only half an hour left a bulb warning flashed up on the dash and the drivers side indicators were giving me the sign of one being out (flashing fast) if wasn't until I got home that I noticed the drivers side angle eyes are also out?

    Does this happen when you have a indicator out or is this a common fault :(

    Thanks daz

    You have a separate bulb to power the rings

    You mean the bulb from the passenger side angel eye? Is this easy to get to?

    I would buy a new bulb as they are a b*tch to get to, at least that way you aren't chopping and crushing your fingers more than once. A small child is useful for this job

    What bulb do I need to buy? I've read in the manual and it seems the indicator bulb is easy to do by turning the wheels and going in the flap. I take it the angel eyes are not this easy :
