Funny, but unfortunately I believe all of the HPFP vendors have been German. Doesn't speak well about their quality control either, does it?

I've been hesitant about buying the Halogen's and looking at the LED's instead. The LED's are more costly, but I can't seem to determine which to get and where to buy.

with LED's, your angel eyes will never dim when the Xenons are on

I think my wheels may have originated there too

Stupid question: if I ordered my Z4 on September 9th and the car is being produced this very week (week 43) will I get the whiter-looking angel eyes like the 2011 3series or not? If not, I'm also interested in the LEDs but again, don't know what to get and from where. I don't like them to be too blueish, looking for white only if possible.

1000% H8 Confirm
Instead of LED, someone use HID Xenon bulb with a small transformer that small enough to put everything in the light housing. That's the brightest angel eyes of all

can white angle eyes be mounted on any e89? even 2010 models? I asked the BMW dealer, the OEM lights he has apparently will not. is that correct?

correct. I think the housing is different. The only solution is aftermarket LED.

Would it be a simple plug and play install?

Pretty sure that OEM bulb is now on the market?

Thanks in advance!

Officer,
I just ordered a pair of these:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=36476

Lifetime warranty and shipped from Indiana. That could be a problem
for you in Switzerland.

Schererville? I used to live in Griffith. Friday night fish fry?

The fact that the guy is in the USA and has a lifetime warranty sold me.

Hey guys (bmwmick, ///NWIE89)

Once installed, would you mind writing a brief review? I'd love to hear your thoughts on performance, installation, etc.

Thanks!

These look very well designed and built. Now my only question... should I get the white or the blue? My Z is Blue with White interior so I am thinking the blue might look pretty trick.

Opinions?
