Who got aftermarket angel eyes?

The angel eyes of my E92 is too yellow to my likings. I want to get those bright and bluish white ones. Are there any brands and models that you recommand? Do you have pictures? Should I install it myself or let a mechanic do it?

GP Thunders are pretty good and cheap like $15. Do it yourself it's very easy. I used 7500k because I like white not blue. 8500k is a little more blue.

You can't see them as good as the stock ones. But they are definitely visible during the day

Okay, my aunt lives right around there, in fact, I get off the 611 exit from 276 to get to my aunt's place. (not that I like to visit her, just that I'm using her garrage to park some of my cars) Anyways, I should bring my e92 there to increase their M3 population.

Another option are the Bimmian Xensis H8 Bulbs we carry which are a pure white color. They don't have the blue tint that you get with the 8000k bulbs as they are designed to be a pure white 6000k output. So if you are looking for something more whitish, I'd recommend these.
