AE Upgrade options

Hello,
Does anyone know of what lights or product I can use to upgrade my E60 AE light. If possible to even make them bright as DRL without breaking open the headlight housing.
I have a PRE-LCI E60.

Right now this is what the bulbs look like currently

I purchased a LED , they are nice, but only good around afternoon/evening when sun starts to go down then you notice it.

I currently have a RGB AE LED.

EDIT:
Here is what is looks like when the Green is on. but once again its only good during afternoon/evening when sun starts to go down.
