2008 535xi angel eyes bulbs??

Hi,

I am looking for angel eyes bulbs for my 2008 535xi.
I am tired of my old eyes...with OEM(orange?yellow?) color.
I lookep up some products but im not sure they would fit safely for my car.
I am looking for white color..should be +6000K i think.
Do you guys have any idea that which products are would fit perfectly and look nice?
If some of you have already installed, can you post it the pic?

thanks

I have same question, though my reasoning might be different. I dont want the ultra bright white lights...just middle of the road brightness with the white light vs the yellow...

If you want lower brightness Trinity does offer a 12W version as well. Shoot them an email and ask. joe@trinityautosport.com

I HAD no error msg for weeks after installing the 20w Cree lights. Now I noticed the triangle! msg on the dash midway through a 3 hr drive. Is it common to get no msg at install and for weeks after, only to get an error msg later? Maybe the lights are getting too hot during a long drive?

I haven't had any problems yet. Check to see if all your bulbs are working then open th cover and inspect the inside to see if there are any problems.
