The reason I'm saying what I do about the whiter halogen bulbs is because they sometimes get their whiteness or brightness by increasing the wattage. That can also be bad for your housings in...

I'm 6'5" and there's more than enough room for me. I don't even keep the seat all the way back and I have long legs.

It will be quite a downgrade in quality... Cheap plastics, leaks, and such. Those are less money than used OE lights and that should tell you something.

Those headlights will fit on your car. I'm still confused what you're wanting to do from your last post.

Upon second reading yeah, that sounds a little snottier than I had intended. You bought a great car and being that we all drive the same cars here we can definitely agree on that.

Enjoy your car...

Judging by your included picture that's just a standard bulb you can pick up at any auto parts store. Access is through the wheel well and can be done in less than three minutes.

Halos

That doesn't apply to pre-LCI E90s.

Angel eyes glow different colours

Did your new bulb have a blue coating?

Edit: also even though these aren't your low beams, I'd still say it's best to change them in pairs since halogens do lose brightness over time.

I have to agree, charging time is more of an issue than range. People with ICEs don't really care whether their car can get 250 or 500 miles to a tank because it's not really a huge deal to pull over...

Transmission acting weird in the morning and a squeal making a right turn

The squealing sound could be your AC blower. Try turning the fan off and seeing if it still happens.

The blower motor is easy to replace yourself and relatively inexpensive.

I wouldn't go that route, start with brighter bulbs. If that still isn't enough, you could have your housing modified with aftermarket LED light rings.
