Quick Question About GP Thunders

Hey Everyone,
This may sound like a newb question but i have on order a E93 335i and im thinking about buying the GP Thunder 8500 h8's. What I dont understand is do i need to buy two sets for both of the lights in the Headlight. Also just to be more clear since i dont have a picture, im not taking about the fog light. Thanks for all the help.
Chris

1 Set= 2 bulbs, which is all needed for the angels. One bulb per side.

If you are ordering bulbs for fogs AND and angels, then order TWO SETS.

your angel eyes are halogen bulbs so the gp thunders will cover them. your main headlights aren't halogen. they're hid bulbs. DS1 or D1S or something like that. those take a bit more work to replace and costs a good amount depending on what kind you get. So basically the gp thunders are to light up the angel eye rings around your main headlights. capiche?

i wouldn't try matching the xenons coz when the xenons light up the intensity of the halos decreases... so if both of them match u won't be able notice ur halos with the headlights turned on... atleast that's what i feel whne i installed mine...
