Fog light Replacement Video

I created a video/slideshow showing the replacement of the factory fog light bulbs. I upgraded them to Cree LEDs and they match the angel eyes almost perfectly. It was plug and play. They throw no error codes whatsoever. This is on a non M-sport 535i,

You can use any LED bulb that fits the H8 (non M sport models)

I recommend ones that have the "360" degree meaning they have diodes on all sides

Here is the one I used on Amazon.

Link to bulb on Amazon

It is the same size as aftermarket Angel Eye bulbs on older X3 and E9xx models so they are plentiful...LOL

Yikes! I didn't realize they were so expensive. At that price they better not burn out within a year or two.

Well they aren't really a bulb. They are light emitting diodes. (LED). There are cheaper ones out there with fewer diodes, and more expensive ones with twice the price . It just depends on the light output and distribution you want.

As for expensive, that is two tanks of gas for us
