Arrow BMW E90 Headlights HELP

Okay so basically i recently bought my 2006 BMW 325i and i want to make my headlights have blue halo's. Would it be okay if i just changed the bulb to a blue HID bulb? even though my light is XENON because the halo's i have on it now don't seem as bright as i have seen on other BMW's, sorry if this sounds stupid to some of you, im new to these things lol

Here are some pictures of how my headlights look now






Much Appreciated

It's a special bulb. If you want bright, you can go with LUX 5.0, but those are white.

Lux 5.0 or any other halo mod are just replacement bulbs. You can search in the vendor classified section for them or buy from an online store such as JleviSW.com bavauto.com or bimmian.com among many others. You can also look for them on eBay.

If you want blue you might want to look at RD angle eyes, they make a bright blue variant. Try the sponsor section or Bimmian.com first for those.


EDIT: MForce sells the RD's here

for angel eyes, there is really only White as the option. there are a view variations of how bright you want them and also what shade of white.
I design the LUX 5.0 angel eye and that is a pure white LED upgrade that is the brightest on the market.
There are other angel eyes that have a tint of blue, but still are white.

I can make a set of truely blue LED's, however they will be illegal to use on the street.
