Smile Angel Eyes or LED bulbs for 2011 X5

Hello, I just bought 2011 x5 and it has the yellow looking rings and I would like to replace those with bright white. What do i need to do? replace the bulb? Which one should I get? I know there are bunch of posts some where but If you guys can help that would be great. Bright white or purplish color both work. Waiting for your responses guys.

Almost all the threads will lead to the best 2:

1) Hellst Angel Eyes (http://www.bimmereyes.com/)
2) Lux V4

I went with 1) when BimmerEyes were running a x-mas special and got it for $115 shipped to US.

Install took 10 mins and it looks awesome....even during day. Unlike 2), there's no flickering at start up either. Highly recommend. At night, it's REALLY bright.

I also upgraded the license plate lights to LED (InfinitySports here on the forum) for $55.

Love both upgrades.

How about a comparison in the daylight against the OE LCI headlights? Lets see how these products compare to the real thing

I just bought a 2011 x5 and my light rings are yellow when the headlights are on but if I put the daytime running lights on they are bright white.

if your angel eyes turn back to yellow when the HID's are on, it is because of a voltage drop, we already fixed this issue years ago.


here are some installed shots of our released DTEC angel eyes.

many ebay LED, but buyer be aware. some flicker/flash and some set codes.
you get what you pay for.
im now in a big problem with a suppler who has a good guarantee but will not respond yet to a problem.
ive found 40 watts is about the right power,, more than that =- alot of heat
