Yes

E92/E93 non m-sport bumper use H8.
E92/E93 with m-sport bumper use H11.

Is the sport bumper the same as the M-Sport bumper?

Also can you just buy the H8 bulb for the angel eye's or do you have to buy these kits I see for other model thats are like 200-300 bucks?

It would probably be a good idea to specify wattages on certain bulbs so the correct ones are used. I'll start:
  1. Angel Eyes: H8 35W
  2. Cornering Lights: H3 55W
  3. Fog Lights (non M-Tech): H8 35W
  4. ...

The cornering lights are the inner headlights (on each side of the grille). They each come on indepently as you turn the steering wheel to illuminate whatever it is you are turning (cornering) around.

Hey guys, I am new to the whole lights things. A few questions:

1) Halo's - are there different ways (ie- different bulbs or bulb types led, hid, standard) that will fit to change the color? Also, what are the differences and what is the best looking (in general)? I would like to get a 6000K color temp out of the halo's, but i would like not to trip codes.

2) Fogs - Best HID fog conversion kit 6000K? (again, no codes)

3) Turn signal/parking lights - samething (and make them turn signal only... not parking/driving lights)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

1. The PIAA, Bellof, BREX LED kits are the closest to 6000K for a pure icy white color. The RD is a little bluer than those. I would stay away from the GP Thunders. You may also try the HID kit made by camaross305.

2. I had the EAS kit and it was error free though I didn't like the color temp.

3. Impossible at this point, no one makes a replacement turn signal bulb.

Wow! Thanks for the info, you are really on top of your game today. I will start looking into the ones you listed and see what I decide.

Question Best H8 Bulbs to match stock Xenons?

I am looking for a simple H8 bulb (non-LED) to replace my ugly stock angel eye and fog bulbs. Anyone know which PIAA is the closest in color?

Thanks,
Jeff
