most 2008 528i comes with standard halogen headlights, xenon adaptive headlights are an extra option, but its okay, we are fully stocked with 2008 528i xenon angel eyes and also halogen angel eyes

Post last 7 of your VIN, or send it to me and I'll look it up

If your lights are about the same as most other cars, you probably have halogens. Xenon/HID will be brighter/whiter

Have to register now though I think, which is a pain given the whole different langauge thing.

Does not look like it. I'm not sure how people don't know when you're driving the car? They are much different

Here's what the option looks like on mine:

Looks like halogen as your inner lights are being used as DRLs instead of cornering lamps.
Do your inner lamps have a ribbed lens? If so, you have HID. If not, halogen. turn on your headlights and flick on your high beams.
If the inner two lights light up as high beams...halogen. If not, HID. Another test is to turn on your low beams and see if they "warm up"
or flicker on first and then warm up. If so, HID.
