White lights

Hello group

I have a 2011 750li. The headlights are the regular yellow color lights. I would like to change them to white. Any suggestions. Is it a matter of just changing the bulbs or do I have to change the housing and such.

Thanks for your help
Rsk

Just bulbs...very easy to do. I have Mtec V2's and like them. I tried many other bulbs and the color was still yellow.

Thanks for your response. Is this some tug I can change myself or do I have to take it to the dealership.
I am not that handy with cars.

Thanks

You can easily do it yourself. There are two lids above the lights that flip up revealing the bulbs. Simple plug and play after removing the factory bulbs. Use Hoen foglight bulbs for a good color match for fogs.

Thanks again. Can you please tell me how many bulbs I would need. I would like to change all the lights including the turn signal bulbs in the headlight assembly to white. So, in the attached assembly, how many bulbs would I need for the left , middle and the right turn signal to make them white.

Thanks

Not sure about the turn signal bulbs...you need a set of angel eye bulbs (recommend Mtec) and two H8 foglight bulbs (recommend Hoen).
