Wow! Angel eyes gone modern... full report no bs

Okay. I've really been bothered by what I consider a rather dated look of the "Angel Eyes" on my 2009 7 series.

I attempted to contact some sponsors to determine whether there was anything compatible with my 09, but no one responded to me. So off I went to find information on the 09. As it turns out, there is little difference in the design of the structure compared to the 08's, and no difference in the bulb, that I could determine.

I found some bulbs on-line from http://www.hid-lights.com for $17.95 + modest shipping. I received them in three days!!! Direct Link: http://www.hid-lights.com/cat/halogen-bulb-gp8500.htm. Please know I have NO AFFILIATION with this firm at all--ZERO--just found them. 8500 Kelvin refers to the color the bulb supposedly throws off, measured in temperature (spectrocity). Really, this is a bunch of crap as the bulbs are just tinted to give this kelvin color. They do a decent job of recreating a HID bulb's output, in my opinion. I noticed the filament is as thick as the OEM's.

This may cause a fire, it may trip codes, it may blow-up, it may electricute me, it may burn me, it may cause damage to my car forcing me to spend a lot of money. I did this because I am foolish and don't suggest you do it, but wish to share the rather cool results. This can be dangerous.

Living with the pee yellow lights is just not an option for me. To be honest, they don't look half bad given the color of my car. I believe the results would be even more stunning with a silver car. To think this cost $17.95 is just incredible.
