E90 Nokya Hyper Yellow 2500k Angel Eyes

I can't seem to install my H8 bulbs into my E90 sedan angel eyes.

I've bought two pairs of Nokya Hyper Yellows (H8 35W & H11 55W), and installed the H11's in the fogs, along with lamin-x . However, I'm having trouble with the H8's. I'm starting to believe the bulb size isn't even H8 for the E90 sedan.

Has anyone installed an H8 bulb into an E90 sedan? How did you deal with the bulb holder, black bracket, and metal bracket with the lens. I'm really confused at this point, as none of the DIYs I found explained how to install the actual bulb.

If the case is that H8 socket is incorrect, are there any alternatives to get the 2500k Hyper Yellow color to match my fogs?



Thanks for your time!

Take a picture of your old bulb with the brackets etc and your nokya bulb next to it

H8 is only for LCI E90 xenon and E92/E92.

Pre-LCI E90 uses a special bulb.

I've already tried putting them on but didn't take pictures they definitely don't fit.

Do you know what the bulb model is? Or are there any yellow led angel eye kits that can match the nokya in color?
