hey guys i found these http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=36476 of course off ebay! But i have a few questions about these? 1) do they look like a good product? haha 2) Will they make my cars lights brighter or not? 3) are they the right watts for my regular driving lights? 4) should i buy 2 sets of them one for driving lights and one for high beams? or do i need different watts for high beems? Thanks

I think bmw are rated for 55w not 65w. Dont know if it makes a dif. They will make it brighter. Xenon usually does.

I think the type of bulb you need is 9005 or 9006 (Not sure), for stock headlight assembly, 55W. Now some Xenon bulbes will act like they put out 100W but are still just 55-65W.

If you have stock headlights you need 9006. His looks ok.
