Angel eyes light bulb on ebay

Im a little confused as far as what bulb to buy. I dont want to spend a lot of money , i just want it to be white and decent quality. Can someone point some out from this list? http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=...t=0&_from=R40#

My car is 2008 E92 335i, tia.

Absolutely correct! Also, many eBay bulbs are known for not having good warranty and low quality build.

mmmmm no, SOME bulbs on ebay are crap. Some of the crap on ebay is the same crap even some vendors sell only with 70% less mark up.

and i tried a set of those i got for like $35 at one point, i didnt have any issues with them for a little over a year but they also werent as bright as OEM or some other reputable brands, so if you mind them not being as bright as OEM or LUX then dont get them. Otherwise theyre pretty decent, and fyi wether you get the $30 or the $60 in those price ranges they are all likely to be the same thing.

I replied with the ebay seller on another thread that I bought from. It was under $50, no problems after almost 2 years. They aren't as bright as some aftermarkets but they aren't dull yellow like stock. You do get what you pay for....ballin' on a budget!
