Exterior Lighting Help, Angel Eyes & Low Beam Headlights

Hi everyone, I am new to the Beamer modding scene. I have a few questions about the lighting for the angel eyes and the low beams. I have done some research and found that the stock E92 low beams are D1S Xenon and the angel eyes are H8. The thing with that is, I am trying to figure out the ballast for the low beams. Are they 35w as well and the bulbs? I am also trying to get white angel eyes but I read up that the light is too dim if I would just get white bulbs H8 replacements, is this true or can I just get super white H8 bulbs? Would this be the same for the D1S as well? Can I just replace the stock bulb with like a 5K or a 6K bulb and it will have a whiter effect than the stock 4300K bulb?

Thanks,
Dav

You can go whiter H8 bulbs or look at the LED options available. They are brighter and whiter than any H8 bulb you'll find.

Sorry, hehe, I guess I'm the newb. Excuse my lingo. Bimmer, not Beamer, got it.


Thanks JDML.

Also, thanks ChasVS. I'm assuming that since I type that long paragraph and nothing else was answered, I got it right? So I am going with the LEDs Angel eyes and just a different bulb for the D1S Xenon. Thanks again guys.
