upgrading Angel Rings in LCI

has anyone tried to upgrade their LCI rings yet,

Apart from the great warranty sticker any ideas what bulbs can be used to upgrade to a better whiter look.

Also any ideas whats the deal with the warranty sticker why would you have one on a bulb housing ???

yes, I got led angel eyes from http://www.e92-lighting.com (actually from the member with the same name) but didn't install them yet...
in order to replace them you just have to twist off that cap and reach your hand in there (which is very very difficult)

they had that sticker on and I ripped it off not think of the warranty (maybe that wasn't the smartest thing to do but hey....what happens if one bulb burns and you are in the middle of nowhere and need to change it....? warranty sticker shouldn't be there!

you could also use the GP Thunder 7500K bulbs but they don't look as bright and nice as the led ones; check this out: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=248095 (you can see the warranty sticker being removed too)
