Angel Eye / Day Time Running Lights Dumb Question

I know this answer exists somewhere...so bare with me here.

My passenger side angel eye / DTL light failed to turn on as I unlocked my 2009 M3. Seems like this is a standard H8 bulb that needs replacing (even though I do not have a warning on my dash that a bulb has failed....does that mean something else?)

I purchased this car 2 years ago, and the halos are NOT the "soft white" color. Instead, they are the HID blue.

What bulbs should I be looking for to get the same blue look?

Great - thanks guys.

Not sure what's in the car now, but it's clearly failing. And from the reviews I'm seeing, appears that LUX is the way to go!

Iíve had lux for a few years and matches the HID color. Just be ready for the fight of your life installing them lol there is veeeeeeery little space to get them installed
