Headlight Question..

I recently purchased a 2009 BMW 328i.Therefore, I am a newbie when it comes to BMW.. I have the corona rings. I was wondering if that means I have halogen headlights? and if so, can I replace the regular bulb with a white bulb?
Thanks in Advance

2009+ had corona rings for both halogen and xenon.

If your headlights have a projector then you have xenons, if they have a reflector then you have halogens.

If its a sedan and it was sold in the US then it has halos with halogen. Unless original owner had it on order from factory with xenons.
