You only need the 2 bulbs. There is a how to in the DIY section along with a lot of other posts on the subject. From my own experience you don't need to loosen the bumper as some have reported but you need to loosen the head lamps and slide them forward. On the passenger side you need to remove the air box and move the radiator overflow out of the way. I was able to do them in about 30 minutes.

I bought mine too and they came with no instructions. I emailed the seller and he FedEx me a CD how video for the 5 series. Very simple to install there is really no need for instructions if you are technically inclined.

I changed my angel eyes to the 6000K super white bulbs, and I purchased them from an ebaystore called M-tech. I payed $49.99 for them plus shipping and they were a great and much brighter light than my stock yellow ones.

I change mine to Blue - they look great - changing them was fairly easy, took me about 10 minutes for both sides and didn't have to remove anything except sliding the headlights forward -

Just acted on your post. I had several options and couldn't decide but figured if it worked for you, it would work for me. Thanks for posting.
