**********s | GP Thunders H8+H3 E8x Angel Eye Upgrades!! GREAT AFFORDABLE APPEARANCE!


I know everyone's been trying to find a vendor who supplies the popular GP Thunder bulbs for the E82/E88's angel eyes, so I decided to be your #1 Source for the GP Thunder Bulb Line!! We now carry a huge variety of bulbs (pretty much any GP Thunder bulb out right now, including HIDs), and we've got this for a GREAT price (on site)

I thought I'd start out with the H8 and the H3 GP Thunder bulbs because it's something that many people are looking for. It will fit your E82/E88's Angel Eyes (H8) and Fog Lights (H8), as well as the cornering lights (H3)!

I have this on my own BMW E92 (which has the same headlight design as the newer 1-series models), and after a year, it's still running as great as it once was--I couldn't be happier for just a bulb replacement

[img]http://www.**********s.com/images/Products/Other/GP%20funder%20In%20box11.jpg[/img]

Benefits:
* Give your car a complete new look!
* 3 Available Color Temperatures (3500K Yellow / 7500K White/Blue Tint / 8500K Blue/White Tint)
* Made of High Quality Quartz glass
* High Power, brighter, sharper
* Great Angel Eye replacement
* Cornering Light H3 Bulb Replacement also available!

Applications:
Newer BMW Models -
E82/E88 1-Series
E90/E92 3-Series & 2008+ M3s
E60 2008+ 5-Series


Pictures of the GP Thunder 8500K on my personal E92--I've had this for more than a year now!!

Can you explain what these bulbs are about? I have seen talk about them but it's never been clear to me what the advantage of these over the stock bulbs is? Not saying there isn't one, I just really am clueless about this stuff.

Does the H3 bulb give that clear look on the corners instead of amber?

Jumpman, some people do not like the yellow stock bulb color, so what they do is just swap the OEM H8 bulb with the GP Thunder H8 Bulbs. This was a preferred product brand in the E90 community, and the new 1-series headlights use the same design for the angel eyes. Pretty much, if you like the look, these are for you Especially if $300+ for an existing Angel Eye LED kit is out of your budget.

As for the H3 bulb, the cornering light is not the turn signal lights. Newer BMWs, when you steer left or right (or even go reverse) your inner headlight illuminates, lighting up the front corner of your 1-series for better visibility of that spot when you turn. I hope that explains. I will see if I can take pictures when I can. If you don't understand, let me know

No that's not what it sounds like, which makes sense anyway because that isn't the bulb, though I was confused at first too since the photos do show clear turn signals. I think I'll still get some of these though for the blue-ish lights.

Yes, these are NOT for the turn signals! These are for the Angel Eyes, as stated in the title

This one is a haolgen replacement, it simply has a blue tint on the bulb to give the look while the LED is higher discharge and should be more visible during daylight. And i emphasize should, it is not always the case.

That was taken on a hot Bakersfield day at 8PM in California... lol. So it was half way through sun down. I'm not completely sure if the 1-series headlights are the exact same design as the BMW E92, but they do use the same bulbs :biggrin:

Also, sometimes, if the bulbs are not installed correctly (possibly not put back in its place correctly), the outer rings may be a little dimmer.
