Tons of threads on this.
Your options are a
1)plug and play LED option-LUX 5.0 arguably the best for this group but even then it isn't as bright. About $200 I believe.
2)Complete LED upgrade which involves sending your headlamps out. It's very expensive but will get you a similar look to the current LED lights. The company is called OSS.

The new models are hard to emulate given the restrictions of the older style fiber optic headlights but you can go with the WeissLicht LED Angel Eyes which swap out the factory halogen bulbs for an LED bulb to emit a more white light color.

Hmm. I didn't know 2011s have blue angels. Never thought they would do it since a lot of people have concerns for being pulled over for "using law enforcement color (blue)" Anyone have pics?

I've seen 3 so far(yeah Norcal...BMWs are everywhere).
A new 535i, a 335is and a new 328i coupe.

They have a brilliant white angel halo, brighter than any of the aftermarket LEDs I've seen. There is only a slight hint of blue. It is mostly white.

In my opinion, the blue is awful. Im disappointed BMW chose to do that on the LCI coupe.. Im not all that impressed with the LCI E92..

White is right

Does the 2011 sedan also have the blue halos like the coupe? Or was it only the LCI coupe that go the upgrade?

Not sure on whether they changed the '11 from the yellow but the F10 has white halos..
Maybe BMW thinks its a younger crowd thing?

Perhaps it is a 2011 thing because I found a thread that was a 2010 coupe and the pics make the angel eyes look white, maybe its just in pictures..
I saw a 2010 5 series and possibly a 2011 coupe?

All in due time

No. The E90 did not get the new angel eyes (unfortunately for me).

So I hear Weisslicht has some new white LED angel eye upgrades coming out in a few weeks for the E90 LCI xenon headlight models. (I have a brand new 2011 335i E90 - and they have the yellow halogens). I'm excited to try these new bulbs and hope they work ok for a nice white look. I'm actually somewhat happy with the angel eyes in the daylight - DRL mode. Its at night when the headlights are on that they look really yellow - when they are dimmed. I"m hoping these solve the problem!
