Hey guys,

I am a current member of e90post and have built a 335i, I will be making an intro thread soon...

I am looking into purchasing an e39, preferably an m5.

The main things that I want to change first are the headlights and taillights, from the research i have done, I have found that "hella" is the way to go...

I also found the ddmtuning headlights, but some reviews and forum posts I saw are against ddm for poor quality.

I am looking to get the hella headlights, I think i found them on ebay.. I cannot find them elsewhere

here is the link:

are these what I need?

Here are the tail lights I found:

Also, as far as the actual xenon bulbs and wiring - what would I need to get that white LED halo look?

I want my lowbeams to be strong white light, 4600-6000K would be my best bet I'd assume.

Also want a nice amber turn signal to complete the headlights

could anybody please help me out with :
1) Did I find the right headlights (are these priced well?)
2) Which lowbeam/highbeam bulb size and sets do I need (whats recommended?)
3) I really want the white halo look, not blue or something different, which bulbs or bulb set would I need for this?
4) Same question for the amber turn signal.. which bulb size would I need and what is a recommendation?

i apologize for such specific questions, but I cannot seem to find much more information on my own..

Thank you in advance,

Here's a couple of pics of my e92 ;)
