Get H8 bulbs, I got mine from Trinity Autosport (trinityautosport.com) - I got 20W CREE LED Angel Eyes. I love them. However, they are for cars with factory Xenon headlights only, if you have halogen they will not work. Contact joe@trinityautosport.com

First thing is do you have halogen lights or the bi-xenon adaptive lights?

I don't think any E60 LCI 535i in the US came with halogens.
You guys see this here:

Just adding to the already overflowing sheet of paper full of companies offering angel eye upgrades. Looks new. Who's trying them first?

Those are interesting, but I'll stick with my AEA from Trinity. They appear to identical in build and quality and have a lifetime warranty.

It sounds like another high performing led AE that is similar to what's out there, IMO. The price is inline with the others out there from TAS and Umnitza. Well to me it doesn't matter as much since I had Orion V4's installed last week.


I got my Lux H8 V3's for sale now. PM me.

Here is a recent photo of the Hellst XRT installed by one of our customers this week. It is a high quality product with an excellent 2 year warranty. If you get in on the Group Buy, you can get a set for $145.

You can now buy the Hellst XRT's for $145/set as our Spring Special...no group buy required! They come with a two year warranty and have the new CREE LED's with the highest brightness values on the market. Attached is a recent photo from Max Shay with the Hellst XRT's installed on his 3 Series.
