    advice on halogen light bulb replacements

    hi...

    I will like to ask for advice on replacement of both interior and exterior light bulbs (including fog lights and angel eyes) from the stock yellow to white or whitish blue ones.

    could anyone kindly tell me where i could get these fitted (including contact names and tel numbers) and the estimated time and cost it would take to do this?

    i know this cannot compare with HIDs but then again, i would not like to void the warranty. however, i am open to all alternatives.

    in the interim, white is better than yellow for me..at least until i can convince myself to put 5k up for the oem zenon conversion.

    thanks for your advice in advance!

    saw on the PIAA website that they now offer the BMW 3 series 6500k LED Angel Eyes 12V bulbs...

    nikleica,

    The Angel eyes & Xenon comes in complete set, the PIAA ring marker is for the angel eyes & the D1S for the Xenon.

    If u wld like white / bluish color, u can try Philips Diamond (H7 type ) for the headlight & Fog light (H11 type )from Juzz for car ( can't remember the brand) , nice combination.

    Re: advice on halogen light bulb replacements

    Thanks mate!

    Guess that is the cheaper alternative to slightly brighter and prettier looking lights.

    Am currently in the midst of considering changing the halogen outfit to the zenon types aside from the original option where I just change the halogen bulbs.

    Got two options:
    1) fit at pml (estd cost at 5k)
    2) fit outside (estd cost cheaper by about 600-800 dlrs)

    both come with washers as well....aside from the cost, i dunno if the ones fitted outside are oem...with the savings coming from a more honest charge for shipping, labour etc.

    Any advice?
