Mein Auto: 2011 335i N55
Angel Eye Color Change

I have yellowish angel eyes, I just saw the same year 335i and it had blue.

The dealer said I am stuck with it, and I can't buy the blue ones from the dealer. Can I get them from BMW I want the ones I saw on the loaner car. It appeared to be about 6000k color temp. Mine are about 4300k maybe a little more yellow.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

There are tons of stores online that sell LED replacement bulbs for your halogens. It may not look exactly like stock but you can get close.

I'm very sure that if I took the blue Angel eyes off my loaner car it would bolt right up to my car. I don't understand why can't just buy factory blue Angel eyes and put them on my car.

The sedans never had them and there is no way to bolt them onto your car. They are built into the housings, and the housings are two separate shapes.

You're just going to have to settle for a bright led bulb.

$150 is steep for a light tho.

The dealer says they sell the h8 socket bulbs and they only come in white. I guess the dealer doesn't make it but it seems like everyone else has it.

The dealer tried to tell me the color comes from the ring itself. That sounds absurd right?

$150 is a fair, middle of the road price.

The halogen bulb gives you the whitish/yellow light. LED will give you a whitish/blue color you are looking for. The E92 LCI headlights have LEDs but they are installed in a way that gives maximum output.

Dealer will only sell you stock bulbs. You need to go aftermarket my friend, stop resisting it.

I wouldn't buy no-name eBay specials. Anything for $30 couldn't be very good. I bet those would cause all kinds of problems and codes. From what I have heard the cheapest decent set is $130. Burger tuning has a set for that price.

Yup, I saw that, so I dragged my pic from the driveway after I popped them in. Yellow, especially against alpine white, is pretty nice.
