    I have recently bought myself a BMW 535d in Carbon black and the one thing I dislike is the colour of the angel eyes. Its a 2008 LCI model, can anyone point me in the right direction of some bright white bulbs?

    Second question, I have a DA polisher, and have always in the past use Megs equipment for detailing a black car, normally just a cutting pad to remover the swirls marks and a polishing pad to finish things off. I am unsure of the paint thickness of the BMW so any tips on how others clean a black car with megs would be good to hear.

    Cheers

    The paint is normally about 120-160 microns. You need to get some menzerna to do it as I had some megs and it would not touch my paint.
