There's a lot of options out there, some expensive some not. Cheapest upgrade is GP Thunder 8500K, available on eBay for less than $30. I'm using them in my sig but they don't look as good as that in real life.

We have been very happy with the RD LED Units which are a direct plug and play for your E90. They offer a nice upgrade over stock and give off a pure xenon white that is a good match to your xenons.

You can order those from us. We have two types:

Halogen H8
LED H8

The Halogen is the one made by GP thunder, and they're the least expensive type out there--simple bulb swap.

The LED H8 is a newer design for the E92. They are made by X5 Lightning frmo us, and they are also a plug-n-play type.

You will love either of these, giving you a cool blue color--definitely unique

You can go with our Hyperwhite Upgrade Bulbs which are a direct replacement for your factory yellow halogens to change the color to a pure xenon white.

You are correct only the inner part changed shape.

Hopefully Vorsteiner comes out with a bootlid for the updated E90.

Vorsteiner bootlid plus updated tail lights.

Ours are designed to be a pure white so they won't have that bluish look like you get with the GPs.

7500k will equate to a "super-white" look for gp thunders



8500k will equate to a "slight-blue" look for gp thunders

It's fairly straight forward. Open the engine bay and remove the black plastic cover on the top of the headlight. You can then unplug the factory wiring from the H8 bulb and take out the H8 bulb. It's a tight fit so be careful when installing.

+1 should take less than 5 minutes, direct plug and play

Has anyone here tried the Electronic Woot LED upgrade? What color do they light up? More blue or white? Are they too white or are they good?

Sorry to thread crap but The RD LED sucks. It's practically invisible during the day under anything other than dark overcast conditions. I don't know about the others

So the bulb size is H8?

Has anyone tried to use a multi-color LED bulb so you can adjust or chose the color at the touch of a button?
