Arc Angel Eyes
 
Just ordered these from Burger Motorsports, will post pics when I receive them, I am not expecting miracles, just some additional added whiteness verse the IMO, ugly yellowish
stock bulbs, for 29.00 dollars, I can speculate.

I too just bought (3 days ago) similar globes from eBay

Three months ago I purchased H8 Halo specific LED lights for my E70 to replace the light amber of the OEM globes.

While these Halo specific LED lights were white, the outer (larger) halos on my E70 were faint, and not that visible during the day (unless you're looking at the ring dead straight). Any slight angle, it looks like they're not illuminated.

So I'll give the Nokya a go to see if they're any better.

Only issue I see with the Nokya, wattage is 55 watts, I believe the bulbs should be 35 watts.

Nah. You can throw any wattage you want into a BMW. It's not like it's got a sophisticated BUS or anything. And who cares about that silly warranty, anyway?

Cruzmeister 01-14-2012 06:27 AM

There is a choice of either 35w or 55w. I got the 35w version of the bulb.
