which Angel Eyes upgrade to white ones from amber on BMW e92 preLCI, 2006 from Ebay??

Hi folks, so I was washing my car with high pressure today and was aiming probably too much on lights, and then the light went off. I am not sure if it was the reason, because I have notice that later that day, and it is left SIDE/DAYLIGHT FAILURE (angel eyes) not the main head light,so I guess, I will need h8 bulb with 7000k CREE (stands for error free version?) and will I need LED or HID? or whatever, I can see thousands choices on ebay.co.uk.
any help on this with the latest and possibly cheapest version?
please see below ebay options with BMW e92 H8 keyword.
(i really don't have time to research it, so please correct me if I am wrong somewhere, thanks)
thanks

Buy from a proven vendor here. When you buy from Ebay there are many risks including not knowing what you are really buying.

I'm not sure if I understand correctly, but CREE ≠ "Error Free"

CREE is a superior LED brand/technology and one of the most over-abused terms on eBay because they know that (similarly, Nichia). I would be VERY cautious buying ANYTHING on eBay which claims to be a CREE LED unless you can personally tell the difference (and are certain the pics are what you will ACTUALLY be getting...)

My 2c.

Correct. Cree is only the manufacturer of the LED, not the heatsink or more importantly the electronics that power the LED. The electronics are the brains behind the system and they are what determine whether they are error free or not.
