bulbs for z4m???

hey
my friend has a 2008 z4m, and we are both baffled by the realoem headlight diagrams...we want to convert his angels to white and his xenons.
we bought 6k d2s, but what do we need to covert the angels to white, h7s?
anything else, and why does it say 4 h7's...isnt that a lot?

Currently there is no "good" replacement for it. The factory angel eye uses a BA9S 12v 10w bulb if I remember correctly that sits inside the inner "mock projector" and lights the ring. I have tried various LED alternatives and none of them are brighter then the stock bulb. One thing I have seen people do that is pretty cool is to replace it with a 21w BA9S bulb which will double the brightness but also make it less white. As of right now, no one makes a good replacement that will be brighter/whiter. If you can find a good BA9S based LED bulb that is really bright then that would work, there's quite a bit of room inside the ring.
