Ok..please be patient with me as I am new to the game here...ok.. I own a 2001 540iA and as you all know it comes factory with the "Angel Eyes" and adaptive Xenon lights.

NOW...here are the dumb questions that I am sure have been covered 100 times...but I am too lazy to use the search feature and hope you all will take pity and answer for me

1. can I "upgrade" my factory angel eyes? If so how and which ones should I use? Do I use the same as the 3 series folks have to? or is it a simple "halo" upgrade since I already have all the wiring? How much will this cost? Same price as a whole kit if I did not already have the factory ones?

I ask this because the my factory angel eyes have a very yellow look to them and not that really cool bright look like the aftermarket and 05 models have. I want brighter and more agressive looking halos.

2. Has anyone upgraded their factory fog lights to the xenon look a likes? I was going to make a purchase from jimmys540i website. His bulbs seem to look the best and since he is a fellow 5er owner I was going to support his bulbs. Anyone here use them before or done the upgrade? Worth it?

TIA for any and all info!
