Help Me With E90 #indicators Please.... :(

Riiight so ive looked everywhere, bulb sites ebay and cant find the answer to this anywhere, doesnt even seem to appear in the manual.

I believe i have an E90 (correct me if im wrong ive attached a pic) '09 5dr and looking everywhere it says i need the standard front indicator bulbs with the offset pins, however ive just been out and taken one out and its a strange bulb ive never seen, kinda smaller and sits in a cradle, why do BMW do this!!! ? lol

anyway whats the name of this bulb, because the egg yolk effect is doing my nut in on the lights!

oh and also i snapped the gripper on one of the screw caps that remove the bulb, :/ bad times anyone know how im going to get it out now, and get a replacement....!

Thanks in advance guys

If you bought your car used, the previous owner could have just put in an aftermarket bulb.

yea you local BMW place has them. Why people insist on owning a BMW, a high end car, and then complain about the cost of repair parts.

every one wants to own one but it seems no one wants to pay the price to take care of one
