As a longtime Mercedes driver, I figured it was time to try on a BMW for size and got ourselves a new 2012 BMW 750 Li X Drive to replace our aging S-Class.

It's a fun car and I am overall very happy with the choice, but like many of you don't care for the yellow angel eye look.

I had seen many 5 series and X3/X5's with bright LED angel eyes and thought at first that I must have had a wrong setting on ours, given that they were so yellow/dim.

That said, reading all these posts on replacement lights, I am still not clear which path to take or what even works.

Perhaps somebody here can help me.

I am looking to simply match the OEM look of a X3/5 series. Not brighter, not bluer. Something safe that doesn't melt anything or throw errors.

Seems like many prefer the angel eyes to be much brighter. That's not important to me. OWM color (7K?) and brightness will do..

Don't care for HID install though. Is there a LED or other bulb that is of high quality, that will just work?

Thank you for any insights!
