Need Help With Light Mods

I have had my 335i coupe for about 4 months now and wondering what kind of exterior modifications to do, i have about 1500 for exterior mods. I will get 20 percent tints all around and just wondering what kind of nice lights i can buy, white not blue. Also, not blurry, i want it to look exactly like an eye. Anyone have any suggestions?

Also, any other tips on what else i can possibly modify on the exterior let me know =)

I'm assuming you want to swap out your angel eyes. Really, the best white angel eyes in the market right now is GP thunders 8.5k, but MDS is developing some LUX for the E92 as we speak so I would wait for those.

As for white lights, get some headlight bulbs (D1S) that are around 6000k in temperature. 6k = white, as you go up it gets bluer.

Those don't really work. You choices are limited right now. There are two LED based products: Bellof and PIAA out there right now. Most people on the forums use GP Thunder 8500K H8 bulbs.

just got the 7500Ks and they are not blue at all. If you don't like the bluish tint, go for the 7500s IMO
