I am really getting put off by the orange appearance in the headlight assembly when looking at the car head on and lights off. The amber doesn't bother me at all when lights are on and illuminated.

There seem to be a few options out there. One is to switch to an OEM silver/chrome type bulb used in the E70 X5. The pro's are OEM finish and function, no codes but the con is that there still may be some egg yolk noted as the silver coating isn't getting rid of the amber look of the bulb entirely.

The other option is LED which will completely get rid of any yolk look as it's main pro but the cons are unknowns like fit/finish/longevity.

A third option is finding some off brand chrome bulb like the attached video but I have no clue where to find something like that.

I wanted to ask if any of you have changed the corner bulb to something like the X5 bulb or LED and what your thoughts were. In either case I want to retain OEM amber color when illuminating. I have tried searching but most posts are dated and the photo links have gone dead.
