Angel eye bulb on halogen headlights (63117161444 vs63112179077)

looked this up on Realoem as well. I saw and know that the low beam is an H7 bulb but it says nothing about the angel eye bulbs. I know it\'s not like the xenon headbulb here i can use an h8 bulb and easily access it from the engine bay. What bulb do I use on an LCI halogen headlight angel eye, from the wheel well?

I thought I heard somewhere else that it's different for non xenon

Question

greetings ... just checking into the same issue for a friend

i am assuming you drive a 2011 328xi e90 lci ?

if yes you will need to email e-92lighting.com or luxangeleyes.com for the proper led upgrade
(i have the lux brand and i am astonished by the result - i have tried different products but lux is top notch unless you want to go oss)

open your hood and find the bmw sticker on your headlights and find out if they are the VAELO or ZKW brand ... with that info contact above vendors

pm me if i can be of any assistance

below the part description from realoem.com for halogen headlights

ONLY APPLIES TO VALEO built Headlight
09 Lighting unit, light rings VALEO Part 63112179077

Only suitable for use with ZKW built Headlight
09 Lighting unit, light rings ZKW Part 63117161444

Just curious, does anyone sell the Valeo PN#63112179077 light bulb assembly aftermarket or do I have to get it at the dealer? I've searched and searched with no definitive answer.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Please list your vehicle year, model, Trim (sedan/ Coupe) and if you have factory xenon, or factory halogen low beams.

We have an array of popular angel eye upgrades on our site. Within you will find different fitments between years, trims, Sedan, Coupe xenon or non xenon applications.

Your best options are: LUX & DTEC (from e92 lighting). Lux is the brightest so I've heard, but it's very pricey and not very visible in daytime (much like all other halogen solutions; due to the fiber optics).

I have the DTEC for sale http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=821819. Looks great in overcast weather and dusk.

Do more research and PM me if you're interested.
