Left halo went out on my 2008 e90 335i

I own a e90 335i 2008 and my left halogen went out.
I was wondering if I could get any bulb from a store to replace it? or do i need to buy a oem set from the stealership? Also is it hard to replace them?

Any H8 bulb rated at 12v and 35w. Installation takes 2 minutes. Look it up on YouTube to get a better understanding.

No, the pre lci e90 has a special bulb. It's not an H8. I would spend some money and go aftermarket. Lots of forum vendors on here make replacements at an affordable cost.

It's not necessarily hard as it is annoying. Going through the wheel well on this car for bulbs is absurd, but that's what we have to do.

And they are a bitch to install on an E90. You need to remove the tire and inside fender trim. Took me about an hour on each side to get it done.

Yeah. I did my ae's and fogs at the same time so it would be more worth while.
