Angel eyes

For those with facelift x5s with xenons, or any bmw model past a date specific to that model, the led fibre optic rings around the low and high beam. Refer to my old 745 pic

You already have them. Just need the brighter bulbs for them if that's what you wonder.
$50-$150 will do.

Hello I don't mean to necro thread on my first post however I'm curious which is considered a good set of bulbs that you're referring to?

I just bought an 2006 X 4.4i and it doesn't seem the angel eyes are all that angelic lol
