Normal Angel Eye Bulbs?

Hi,

First post, absolutely loving my E91 325d!

i've got a bulb out on one of my angel eyes, can you replace just the bulb or do you need the small unit too?
did some searching through here and saw you go in through the wheel well.

just wondering if you can get a good priced source of normal style bulbs? ebay is flooded with LED's.
its a 2010 LCI with xneons if it helps

Thanks

Andy

The standard bulb is a H8 which you can buy for around 5.

Changing it is not too bad, you can replace it under bonnet, no need to go through arch liner.

See here for recent discussion on LED, http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1357308

Well I balls up here.

Basically the warning was front right position light (if I recall) which when I looked at the lights I saw my right outer angel eye was dimmer then the others so thought it was this.
Brought a h8 bulb today but thinking, shouldn't both rings on the right be out....

Anyway, position light isn't side light, it's the one that comes on when you turn the wheel to the right and left... my mistake.

Off to buy a h3 bulb tomorrow and change that instead

On the plus side I have a spare h8!
