Need advice on 06 E90 headlight replacements

So my wife's E90 has the old hazy headlight syndrome and she is turning the screws on me to get them sorted. I did some searching for threads on the matter and it was a bit of an information overload for me! I don't want to spend a load of money and she isn't fussy about angle eyes etc. Would these be a good replacement: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Depo-Pair-Eu...sories&vxp=mtr

Thanks

Don't buy them! I bought those thinking they'd be an inexpensive upgrade, but the beam pattern is awful and it's like driving with just your fog lights on. I'd recommend spending a bit more money an getting the ones fishcake sells on eBay.

I tried looking for fishcake but no results. Any idea how I find his listings?

id stay away from ebay in general
go with a vendor that specializes in lighting
probably umnitza if you had a choice, it's hit or miss sometimes what you read about all vendors though
