Trigger halfway pulled on 528i...

I have put money down to hold a 2010 528i xDrive, CPO, 30K miles, over last weekend while I slept on the decision. Most likely, I will go in today or tomorrow and close the deal.

I have a couple questions that I hope the fine folks here can answer...

1. One of the first things I would like to do is brighten up the Angel Eyes lights. I have the Xenon headlights (I'm not sure if that makes any difference regarding my options). What is the easiest course I can take? It is as easy as swapping out a bulb?

2. Is there a good place to buy OEM all-season floor mats besides the dealer? I did a couple cursory google searches but again, I bow to the experience here on the boards.

3. I typically de-badge my cars. I guess I just prefer the cleaner look. I assume all the badges on the car are stick on?

I'll post some pics once I take delivery, but really, I assume you have all seen a Silver 528i before. It will be my daily driver so I don't plan to do anything crazy.

Thanks for all the help! This is my first BMW after being a very loyal Audi customer for years. Just thought I'd try something different this time around.

Hey there, Cyclone. You might get more action on your post in the 5 series forum. I would try www.getbmwparts.com for some excellent choices in regards to floor mats. I think they are offering free shipping on mats. As far as the angel eyes, clink on the site sponsor link above, there you will find vendors for your light modification. Good luck with your new car.
