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.

Lux H8 160's are the go-to choice. May be a bit pricey but totally worth it. Have them installed on my X5 and its they look fantastic.

Just checked their website and they look great! Installation appears to be very easy as well. Question: do you have to run the daytime running lights to get these to work or will these work with the DRLs off?

They work regardless of if they are in full xenon headlight mode or in DRL mode. They're basically just like the stock yellow halogen ones that come stock, behave the exact same way as well. Only difference of course is that they're are white in colour and are LED bulbs. Installation is fairy simple only difficulty you may face is if you have large hands (like me) it will take a bit of wiggling until you get it in place.
