Need help to confirm bulb upgrade for angel eyes, 04 525i head lamp

Hi, I have pictures attached of my 2004 525i head lamps. I need help to confirm an upgrade bulb I found on eBay. The bulbs listed are replacement/upgrades for the angel eyes. The bulb is located below the "low beam/high beam/H7" halogen bulb, within the circular cover.

BMW Angel Eyes Halo White 5W LED Ring Marker Light Bulbs X5 E39 E60 E63 E64 E53

eBay item: 380730396060
http://www.ebay.com/itm/380730396060...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I am considering purchasing. It says the bulbs are for "Fitment: Pre-LCI model only and only work for the BMW listed with factory equipped HID headlights only"

I also checked the compatibility option to see if my vehicle is on the list, which it is. But I want to make sure it will work and not have to deal with returning/refunding the item back to the seller.

If anyone can help me verify that my head lamps are original OEM stock and 100% compatible for this upgrade, that would be great! Thanks in advance.

Did you upgrade to something similiar? If so, can you link it?



I would like to make people aware that even though I checked, "I also checked the compatibility option to see if my vehicle is on the list, which it is." a newly purchased item is being process for refund because it's not compatible with my head lamps. The listing said it was compatible but I don't have the slot. So be careful when shopping online, that's why I'm trying to get a second opinion.
