I have a 2008 E93 that I want to put Angel Eyes in. I asked my dealer if he could get them from BMW, and he said BMW offers them but only for 2011 models. They won't work with older models.

Since you have a 2011 I would get them from your dealer and have them install.

I am going to have to buy after market, but my dealer said he would intsall them.

paying the dealer to install will cost a lot...

there is no OEM solution for changing the angel eyes

and the 2011 LEDs the dealer was referring to are for non-M 3 series

no auto start=no problems really.

Are there any potential "side effects" to doing this? e.g., can it interfere with the electronics of the car?

No interference with any electronics. Some people claim that they have had yellowing of their Angel Eyes with the HID kits, but in the few threads I've seen it is mostly from the Camaross kit and not the Alpine kit.

I haven't had any problems.
The nice thing I like about this kit...not cutting...no splicing. I could return the car to stock in a few minutes, if I chose to.

I have the 8000k kit for 2011 and I haven't had any problems. And I can also vouch for alex as one of the best sponsors on here for customer service.

I live in Miami and if any locals need help installing..let me know

Cheers
