My angel eyes are very dim, bought the large round bulbs, went to change them and there are not any in there like it shows in videos. Do i have a different type of bulb for the first year? Thanks

He has halogens, the bulb is literally on the top of the high and low beams. It's just pushed in. There's a wire at the top all you have to do is pull and it comes right out

So that is the small 12 v bulb that is at the very top. I found that, just was not sure if that was the angel eye bulb, i thought i would have the large ones like i see everyone using. Thank you!

Yes that's the bulb. I only know this because I also have an 04 525i and I swapped the bulbs myself. I haven't seen an 04 with different AE bulbs unless there was a retrofit that was done to the car.

yes they are a pain to install and take out, as for me, took me 30 min just to do 1 head light, sucker wouldn't turn had to use nose pliers, even then that was hard but it helped..

hope you dont have big hands... :D
