Question 2006 Pre-LCI E90 Angel eyes LED conversion.

Hi all,

Got an 06 pre-LCI E90 325i with Xenons and the horrible yellow angel eyes (what were BMW thinking!!). I'm looking to change the angel eyes to the bright LED ones.

Can anyone recommend a reputable online retailer of a suitable replacement, preferrably in the UK? I'd like to have BMW genuine parts but when I asked, they told me they don't manufacture the LED conversion of the angel eyes for my car.

Ideally I'd like a direct swap, but understand this might not be feasible, however I'd like to avoid any unnecessary mods to any of the housings (such as drilling holes etc. etc.).

Furthemore, is there a way of ensuring the new LED angel eyes will match the brightness (K value?) of the current xenon headlights? I don't want super bright angel eyes that look like they've obviously been replaced as they're so much brighter than the actual headlights. Is there a way of finding out the current K value of my headlights???

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
Cheers in advance,
