Solaris invisibulbs for the E90

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
Ok... last set of bulbs from me up for sale.

I ordered the Solaris invisibulbs for the E90. The bulb set would include the bulbs for the front blinkers as well as the side blinkers. These bulbs will still blink amber, while having a clear appearance. These bulbs will help to eliminate the 'egg yolk' look of clears with yellow bulbs in them.

The bulbs are completely new, and I have just decided to stick with my stock bulbs.

Bought them new for $40 plus shipping, so make me an offer...

I do accept paypal...

AJ, after trying out several brands, you like stock the best? Currently, the only bulb replacement I'm considering is to ION Yellow. I'm really nervous about an HID kit for the fogs because I'm worried they will be too bright and be useless in foggy conditions and I'm worried about messing with BMW's electrical system.

These are not fogs. just the blinkers for the front and sides...


When it comes to my fog light dilemma, I am very pleased with my current bulbs. They are the Xenesis true match fogs available on **********s.com or bimmian.com. They are the white I was looking for.

I also am a little hesitant on HID fogs. I dont want them to drown out the headlights, and they would have to offer an exact match to stock for me to even consider.

I think HID foglight kits might come with the stock 4300 rating, Jens from SUV lights told me. I think that would match the stock HID's perfect. I just feel worried that the HID fogs will just reflect back in my face in foggy conditions and so far (as far as I know) all the kits are throwing error codes.

Im happy with my halogens as fogs. They are actually much brighter than stock... but not too bright...

I just put an order for a set of Xenesis true match fogs from bimmian.com & I'm wondering how hard is it to replace the oem fogs?

Bavarian, I know you have been doing alot of trial and error on matching the fogs correctly....are the Xenesis a true match to the stock Xenons?

On the topic of bulbs, any of you guys replace the reverse lights? I typically like to change them out to super whites but wanted to see if they were one of those funky bulbs types. THanks
