Angel Eye's. Need new bulb

Anyone know a link to where I can find a replacement bulb for my halo/angel eyes? They are about 60 buck at the dealer, but wanted to see if they are cheaper online, plus as everyone knows the stealership is usually over priced. I have a 2004 X5...

Umnitza (is that the correct spelling)...they had AE bulbs for the facelift e53 on sale for aprox $35 a few months ago. They were white AEs with about the same illuminosity of the originals (ice lite)...then had brighter ones on sale for around $99.

EDIT: just checked and the "ice lite" AE replacement bulbs are still on sale for $34.99: http://www.umnitza.com/bmw-angel-eye..._113_1210.html

I'm looking to upgrade from the dim amber look on my OEM angel eyes. They sell an assortment of angel eye lights on eBay. Not had much to do with this, so have no idea if I need to buy two sets or if one will do the job? Are the bulbs hard to get to? Will I get an error if I upgrade with a higher wattage (for a brighter look)? I'm looking at possibly buying these: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2x-CREE-8...item2c991d42cd

Any help or guidance would be really appreciated.

how bright will the on sale 35 dollar bulbs http://www.umnitza.com/umnitza-ice-l...65-p-5838.html
appear comparatively to the modern BMW's that could get away with using their halos as headlights?
trying to give my x5 that modern look with pretty bright halos and just looking for some direction

They are reasonable, but they are not comparable to the brighter modern X5s.

If you want the brightest possible setup, the ICE VXX is the one for the 2004-6 X5s, after that, it's the DTEC/ICETEC that we carry.

I think the cops might try and pull me over with blue out here in CA. I found these white ones... think they will work? Also, are these pretty much "plug and play"?

Very easily installed. Line-up the bulb and turn. It helps with smaller hands.

Something to consider this memorial day.
