Hey guys, pretty much a newb here. I have an 07 328i with xenon lights, and am going to purchase a set of LUX 5.0's when they are back in stock. I am also going to purchase some H11's somewhere in the 4300k-5500k for fog lights, but one thing I can't figure out is what to do about the DRL's or the inner light.

Right now its the stock yellowish colour and I want to replace it, what are my options or is this part of the LUX kit?

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Chris

Belarus, I think you and I are the most anxious for Weisslicht V2. Have you seen any updates lately? Hopefully we can get some of the first units once they're available.

I have the BMS lights. I tired using them as DRL's but they are not very bright in the direct sunlight. They look the best at night.

I think I figured out my questions. Since I'm in Canada my DRL lights are on all the time, so in order to get rid of the yellowish stock light I need to replace it with a halogen replacement (H7). Won't look as good as my Xenon low/high beams but at least it will be a bit more white than stock, and will look better in combination with the Lux 5.1's.

Anyone have an alternative or does this sound like a viable solution for my 07 328i?

Thanks

LOL... One of the vendors promised to follow-up this week to see if he can get an update. The other vendor's response http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=413425

I'm assuming you have E90... If I'm not mistaken you can replace you OEM Xenon with something like GP Thunder Xenon's that are 7500K or 8500K for whiter color

GP Thunder Xenon 7500K http://www.e92-lighting.com/products...ITE-38-16.html

GP Thunder Xenon 8500K http://www.e92-lighting.com/products...WHI-56-17.html

PM Derrick E92-Lighting the vendor on this forum for additional Q&A.

And from what i have researched, the difference between the 8500 and 7500 is the 7500 is a brighter, more pure white look? Correct?

Has more white hue vs slightly light bluish... not sure if they're actually brighter.

Sooo many options.

Ive read and read but still unsure.

1.) I have an 09 335, do I have a choice of any of the bulbs or is there a difference in the headlight setup of the 09. Ive noticed people talking about the changes in the lci cars.

2.) Why not just get the halogen bulb for 15 bucks, can you really notice the difference from the led bulb? And if the led is so much better, it looks like the lux 5 got great reviews so where can I get them

Thanks

i believe the lux 5 is for sedan and lux 8 for a coupe, not sure what you have.

Bot these will work for the 2009s

LEDs like the lux are white and brighter then oem.

I apologize, I forgot to specify, I have an 09 sedan, I forgot it made a difference.

So if any vendors want to pm me some good prices that'd be great

Hey guys, I've got a 07 e90 sedan with xenons and was wondering if it was any different for people with xenons and those with the depo headlights or if it's just the same.

2008 335xi  [5.00]
I have a 2008 e90 335xi with xenon so many of the options discussed here are not available (camaross, Lux H8, OSS, Cityvision). Lux H5 seems to have a fan and I would rather avoid that. Best bets seems to be MTEC and Weisslicht - both about $150. Both have nice looking heat sinks. Both seem to be well regarded by posters here.

Recommendations?
