BMW wouldn't recode my car to have only the angel eyes on as daylight running lights, said it wasn't possible. Only way you can have angel eyes during the day is by setting your light switch to "park" which also turns on the ambers. But I have been told by fishcake and others that it can be recoded to only have those 3 small LED park lights on the headlights on, instead of all the 5 amber LEDs in the front, for the park setting. I will prb get that done after figuring out this issue. Only option I have right now is to put my original halogens back on and take it into BMW for a warranty fix, which will be a total b!$@h. Getting that bumper on and off alone sucks!
Yea I think the ones I posted there's 1 there with clear corners and reading the description says something similar to what you're saying. I would hate to have amber ones.. I am thinking of checking out the local places instead of buying these things online (easier for warranty too) ..

Yea I saw the ones with the 3 small led lights .. goodluck hope you get your stuff fixed.. mine currently look like yours too (halogen) actually the HID lows and Halogen lows price is like 100-150 difference (prob worth it)
