Cool Yellow Ring Lights Stronger

Hi, i feel that some bmw ring lights seem a lot more powerful than others(looks more aggressive).
So i was thinking what would it take to get the rings yellower and stronger.
Would I have just to change the small bulbs only or should i get new headlights with LED or....
thank you

Led lights would make them brighter.

Garage List
When using the standard incandescent (halogen) bulbs, the voltage will drop when the headlights are turned on (or so they did on my car, anyway) and their brightness diminishes. But LED illuminators will not dim, and they're available in amber as well as the bright white color that is more popular.

No, that is for xenon headlights, and for xenon you would just have to change out the bulb.

OP, you have halogens with no angel eyes, from what I understand. You first need to upgrade to Xenons, or LCI halogens.

No, actually I have the xenons. I just want brighter yellow rings. ( I think my rings have standard bulbs ) So can i just upgrade them by changing the standard bulb to yellow LED's without changing the headlights ?

Yes just get some yellow Nokya H8 fog light bulbs from HighPerformanceBulbs.com- they should fit right in there depending on the year of your car of course. Not sure about yellow LEDs- quite frankly I've never seen any- I just see white and blue and red, the latter of which I would not put on the front of the car. What is your car year?
