Mein Auto: 2011 328i
2011 328i Yellow Headlights Change To Blue/White

Hello everyone, first upgrade I would like to make on my car are the headlights. Right now, all lights in the front look like normal yellow lights. I have seen cars with an amazing blue/white color lights to them that just looks perfect - especially the halo looking lights! Also, I have found forum posts on bfest but they don't include detailed pictures or part numbers on all bulbs.

The research I've done so far is my mechanic and I have found out the lights are halogen. Also, we found out there are around 4 bulbs on each side driver and passenger side (headlight, brights, halo ring, fog light). The confusion we have is:

1. what bulbs do I order and from where?

2. the ring looking light, what bulb is that one? This is the light that looks like a halo ring. Some people call it angel eyes? What bulb and where do I get it?

Thank you everyone. I appreciate your help very much!

LED angel eyes here: H8 bulb

The closest I have found to a "blue" halogen is this: H7 bulb for low and high beam.

The problem you will find, however, is that the light output will be diminished compared to standard halogen bulbs. I use them for my high beam bulbs only.
