This is my first bmw and I'm impressed with everything so far. I want to switch the factory halos out for a set of white leds. What's a reliable bulb and a place or site that I can order them from?

I installed somethings similar to this about 3 years ago. 10w each. Work great and several times brighter than the original yellowish bulbs

Numerous offerings on eBay from 2 watt to 15 watt and above. Ensure they are 'error-free' or code out the cold check, to avoid error message appearing all the time on your dash. Google is your friend, as in most cases when researching things automotive.

We have a 2005 X5... is switching a different bulb straightforward? Or does something need to be changed in the housing?
