Bad High beam Headlight - How Do I Replace

Hi everybody. New to the forum. I just bought a 2002 M5 with 49K miles in immaculate condition (paid 24k not sure if that's high or low).

Anyway, a warning light came on "check high beam headlight". I did and sure enough one of the headlights is out.

Its unclear which one though because when the light switch is set to "Auto" only one light goes on. At night, however, it seems that there are two headlamps lit.

Is there a kit or a bulb set that I can easily replace the bulb(s) with?

Also, I recall seeing somewhere a mod that allowed you to put in a type of bulb that gave the nice white ring instead of teh yellowish ring that comes stock.
