There is an application guide under every bulb type when you click on it.

Yes, there is. But the application list only includes years and models -- it doesn't mention installed options. As a result, the application guide seems like it might conflict with other information on the page. For example, I guess the lamps I want are these, but the description says they're marker lamps, not angel eye lamps. The description says that the package is for cars "with stock equipped Angel Eyes / Xenon Headlight only". While my car has xenon headlights, it also has adaptive headlights. It's not clear that this part is compatible since "only" implies a further restriction. The listing says the "Brightness level is at 7000K" for these parts, but Kelvin is not a unit of brightness -- it's a color temperature, which is a completely different quantity.

Does anyone know which lamps are appropriate for my application and options?

Well mine are adaptive and I ordered the e92 20w ones as it is the same for the LCI e90. From the looks of it the adaptive lights are in a separate section and the H8 unit will not be in a way/will not affect the adaptivity. And you are right as far as Kelvin being a temperature, not brightness, but we all know what he meant. Would help to change it to make site look more professional. Hope someone else can chime in.

The marker name put me off as well when ordering, I even went back and double checked a few times that I chose the right stuff as it is hard to tell in the basket what you did...

Interested to see your pics and reviews! Thinking about ordering them for my 335i, but not sure.
Can you also comment on the install process? easy? tools required? (i've never changed angel eyes before so this would be my first mod to my car)

What is the difference between
LED Marker http://www.bmwled.net/one-pair-e92-20watts-led-marker
and
Angel Eye's Marker http://www.bmwled.net/e92-led-angel-eyes-marker

Which one should I be buying if I only want to change my AEs?


EDIT: The LED Markers are H8 and 20w. The Angel Eye Markers are unlisted wattage and not H8? Someone clarify please.

Buy the set that does not say "out of stock" in the upper tight hand corner.

Interesting.. I bought my angel eye bulbs on eBay (they were from BMWLED.net) for my LCI e90 last July, and the company doesn't even have them on their site? All I know is that I am not happy at all with the quality of the bulb. I understand that the outside ring doesn't like up as much as the inner ring, but my outer ring is almost non-existent. I've driven over 13,000 miles since I installed them so at least they are pretty reliable for the $60. When they go out I've been telling myself that I am going to get LUX since I don't want to drop $800 and have my headlights taken apart.

Update: ordered the 20w kit three days ago and it came in today. Mail man lost it in the truck though and had to come back at the end of the day. The install is pretty easy, it took me about 20 min per side with my XXL bear claws, did leave some blood on the housing though lol. Below are the pictures during and after. I am very pleased with the result. One thing to mention for easier install it it helps to take the wires off the post. If you look inside the housing, the wires that go from the H8 are bunched up and sit on the post just below the socket. I could not lign up/position properly the bulb until I pulled the wires off the post(just pull towards the front of the car, comes right off, they will just hang there). Will see how they hold up, love so far, did I mention that? Let me know what you think.

I think those are the older version. Spend a couple more bucks and get the brighter ones.

Shame it took this long for someone to start selling these cheaply. They've been colossally overpriced and poorly designed from the start.

Looks like they are out of stock at the moment but you can find them on eBay.
