Getting new bulbs, question

Okay so i dont know to much about the lighting. I have a pre lci e90 330i and i want to change out all the lights. I decided to go with GP thunder. Now i want to change out the fogs, day time running lights and angel eyes. So H11 is for the fogs, but what are the DRL's, h7? Then what would the parking light angel eyes be ?

The DRL are H7 and you need some LED made for the e90 pre-LCI only for the angel eyes.

You can certainly replace the bulbs for the angel eyes. I think GPT sells one, but I'd go with something a little better known.

Take a look at the HighPerformanceBulbs.com 6W AE unit http://www.highperformancebulbs.com/bmwaneywh6wa.html (fantastic if you're on a tight budget!), the MTEC V3's http://www.ebay.com/itm/MTEC-V3-6W-L...ht_8905wt_1392 , or the LUX 5.1's http://luxangeleyes.com/products?qui...=3#quicktabs-1

the LUX's are known to be very bright--but so are the MTECs. It's up in the air if the MTECs are brighter, some say yes, some say no.
