    Hello everyone

    I think i'm posting the correct section! i was hoping if you could help me please, i'm wanting to change my halogen lights to HID's..and i was wanting to know what the bulb size is for the headlights?? The HID's i'm after will be the 6000k rated one as i had this on my previous car...and also i'm wanting to change the bulbs for the angel eyes aswell to LED's and was wanting to know what the bulb size is for them??

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply mate! Really? Putting the HID's in doesn't look too difficult from the looks of it, the only sticky point I can see is changing the Bulbs for the angel eyes :-/ really awkward place where they are...but I look forward to hearing from the member that's already done them and see how difficult it is lol :-)

    HIDs are really easy to install (plug n play) most people have them setup in 10 minutes!

    But I too recall a 5series owner having issues. Have a quick search on here (am on the phone otherwise would have done it for you)...

    I've had a look...but i can't seem to find the thread in question :-/

    But from what threads i have seen, it seems easy enough...correct me if i'm wrong..but i assume Headlight bulb size is H7 and the angel eyes bulbs will be 501's??

    Cheers

    h7 for dipped on halogen lights 100%, as for halos, if your e60 is a facelift then there are 2 h8 bulbs, 1 per headlight which power the 4 rings. Ie 1 h8 bulb powers two rings. But if your pre facelift 2007 below then you will need led marker bulbs, two per corner, they can be purchased direct from hids 4 u, and both are easy to fit. Headlights do have to come out for access but its only for screws a side. Youtube has really easy walkthroughs for removing e60 headlights to fit led bulbs for angel eyes, just type in led e60 and vids will come up!! its some chinese guy in the coolest pair of slip on shoes you will ever see!!! lol!! but he makes it easy as it is easy, headlight out in under 2 minutes!!! just have the guts to have a go, its a doddle!!! hid ballasts can be neatly hung aswell on e60
