I've ordered a new bulb but should I have ordered two as there are two light rings (or Halos i would imagine) When you look on ebay they go on about LED Halo upgrades and that people are wanting to change from the original Yellow lights. I'm sure mine are original Off White lights, so are there two park lights per side or one, I'm sure I sound dense the Beemer old hands but there's a lot of jargon speak that I'm afraid I just haven't tuned into yet. So anyone, one bulb or two per side and if you have a better option than the bulb I've bought below?

There's a lot of confusion happening for multiple reasons:
1. you are on an e38 7 series forum (1995-2001) and you're asking about e53 X5 headlights
2. terminology is being lost in translation (parking lights are not "HALOS" on the e38 which is what you're reading about in this forum)
3. it's unclear what your issue is...please explain what you mean by "front drivers side indicator & no white lights". There are multiple "white lights" need to either find out what they are called, or be more descriptive, or post a picture...especially if this is all new to you and you don't know what things are called by the majority of forum members.
2001 E38 headlights & parking lights (never came with "halos" from BMW...any e38 7 series with them are aftermarket):

(HID headlights)

(2001 E38 parking lights (#3)/turn indicator lights {one unit w/dual purpose})

2004-06 E53 X5 Bi Xenon headlights with "halos" (Angel Eyes)

(BMW part #14 (63126916097 ) is the bulb for parking lights (halos) & #18 is for turn indicators)
