headlight advice

So my halogen low beam and angel eyes (different side of course) are out. Do I replace them or should I go with an aftermarket HID kit.

Is there a place in the pacific northwest that will do that kind of work?

I'd upgrade but I don't like the steering on anything but an e90.

Replace them as HID has it ups and downs with our weather it it just best to replace with an OEM Aftermarket.

Side, but relevant question. I have aftermarket LED H8 angel light bulbs, and the car gives lights warning when started. It stays as little triangle on the dash. Is there a way to avoid /cancel it out? A bit annoying.

Hello,

You have to code the car. The easiest & cheapest way is:

Buy a Veepeak BLE+ (around 45.00) OBD works with iOS (iPhone) or Android. Then buy the App - Bimmercode $40.00 then you have it or If you travel to Portland OR. I can help you for free. Cheers!

That's up to you. But, at the very least replace both when you're at it.
