Changing Fog's and Angel Eyes

I have a 2011 335d, just wondering if others have changed there fog lights and there Halo's. I just don't seem to like the yellow around the rings of the Angel eyes..


I was looking at these to replace all.....
GP THUNDER 8500K H8 PLASMA V2

http://www.e92-lighting.com/products..._V2-61-17.html


Also wondering how hard would it be to replace them myself

Thanks

It's probably a good idea to look around in the lighting section of the forum. There's a ton of threads on the AE's and fogs, so you can get a good idea of what appeals to you the most.

I've got the Lux H8 V3 and they are the best plug and play in my opinion. Costs about $250 though.

I agree with Aaron Sweat, I have the Lux H8 V3's on my car and they are by far the best.

I changed just my fog bulbs (to a bluer light to better match my headlights), but that's it. Unless you go with a full-on replacement of your housing (like from OSS) you will never see the level of light output the new F10/F30's have. In fact many of the plug-n-play bulbs look down right terrible esp during daylight hours. The Lux LED replacement bulbs are probably the next best thing although they will not match the light output of OSS.

There are LED fog light kits out there, but you need to buy a relay to avoid throwing codes.

Axel if money were no object, OSS. Alternatively I would consider the Lux LED bulbs, but would really like to see them in person. PErsonally I don't mind the oem angel eyes.

I am afraid you will be highly disappointed with the light output.

No, not even the e92 lci which has the led (white) angel eyes will work.

Yea the e90 LCI owners really got the shaft on that one esp since BMW opted to put them in the e92/e93 LCI cars.

Hey Axel, you should really pop for the OSS. I know they are expensive, but I can honestly state that they are the best appearance mod I've ever gotten. I'll never forget when I first reinstalled my headlights, I just couldn't get over how much an improvement they were. I've never been able to get a photo that really captures their look, in fact never seen a photo that does them justice.
