Realoem.com is your friend

I haven't looked that particular bulb up but, commonly, the type of bulb is listed right there with the part info.

cornering lamp? or corner bulb? either way...you'd be surprised what you find when you open that book your car came with...I think we refer to it the "owner's manual"

Personally no LED. Been there, done that. It flicks when the key is turned on. And doesn't give you enough illumination. I did mine with PIAA, you can go for 55W, colour wise you can choose something close to OEM 4300k. LED isn't what the E92 would accept at least for the headlight units.

I swapped mine out with Sylvania ZXE. Slightly better.

Can you give me a link please? The yellow really doesn't provide a lot of illumination.
