LED Halo Ring Lights for M3s

I have a 2011 E92 M3. Although it has xenon headlights, the DRLs and the Halo lighting are Halogen. These same lights on 2011 335i's are LED. How do I get the blue-white lights on my car? Do the 2012/2013 M3s have LED ring lighting and if so, are they retrofitable to my car?

Thanks.

What do you guys think of AngeliBright AiB V4.5 LED Angel Eyes?

Also, is there anyway to just change to a white bulb without having to add ballasts, heat sinks or additional wiring - something simple and elegant that doesn't throw codes or cause heat issues?

Lux. Pay the $245 or whatever. Install. Done.

Yes they aren't cheap but they work, look good, and are very reliable. I love my 5,000K H3s. Close to stock "white" color imho.

Some of the other BMW boards have reported that there has been a heat issue with the Lux units and a compatibility issue with 2010+ M3s. Have any of you guys experienced either of those problems?

2013 M3 - Running them for 10 months - 0 issues. The lights on the M3 never changed, so whoever says that they're having issues with 2010+ is BSing. It's been the same since 2008. Now, LUX did go through a bad batch(That was LUX, NOT BMW) but that was resolved rather quickly.

I just ordered a set and installed them a couple days ago. I love the new adjustable feature. So far so good.

I was just looking online at the LUX H8 V4 - Color Adjustable Angel Eyes - for those of them that have them, what color temperature did you select?

LED Halo Ring Lights for M3s

I ordered my V3's in 5,000, I find that white very close to OEM.

I would say the 5200k setting is the closet to OEM, I'm running at 7800k for just a hint of blue

Your lights would be interesting to see if you can work it out.
