Mein Auto: 328xi
2011 328xi Angel Eyes

Hey guys I'm new to the forums and I know there are heaps upon heaps of questions about headlights. I did search and dig through the forums to try and find the answer before posting but to no avail. I'll try to keep it short. Looking to go from the orange angel eyes to some nice white ones. I've looked all over the internet but haven't found anything that I trust to drop the cash on. I drive a 2011 328xi. I found these (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tchlink:top:en) on ebay and I'm wondering if they'll work and if they seem legit. I'm looking for a simple swap with no diy work other than the basic installation. if you have other suggestions I'm definitely open.

Thanks!_a_

The product you linked is a complete headlight replacement. You can simply change out the angel eye bulbs on your 2011 BMW E90 LCI 328xi which will be a more affordable solution. Are your factory headlights halogen or xenon? The bulb sizes are different so we'll need to know a little more info.

I believe they're halogen as they're more of the average yellow hue not a crisp white. Thank you so much for the help! This problem has been plaguing me for month

he is asking you to confirm xenon or not.
do you have the window sticker?
i think xdrive comes with xenon BUT take the VIN no. to a BMW web site and confirm,, search the web.

See my thread, if interested: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...eekend+warrior

Note: I'm happy with the results but the overall brightness of the MTECs is a tad below the OEM bulbs. I don't blame you for feeling overwhelmed as there are a ton of products out there. Best of luck and post the before and after pics when done.

So do you have anything "brighter" than the MTEC H7s that you sold me?
