I have the Alpine HID kit and need to get replacement angel eye bulbs. I tried ordering them from alpinemss but it's been over 2 months and still nothing. What are some other bulbs I can use? I'm looking for blue or whiteish blue

Check out retrofitsource.com and find the h8 morimoto 5000k bulb. If you want a little bluer, go with 6000k bulb

I'd be interested in those too if they fit the Alpine Kit.

Those lights don't cause any issues with the alpine kit?

Yep, those are it. You have to cut and splice the wires from the alpine ballast to the new bulbs but it's really easy. I'm telling you, the alpine kit is crap all together but if you must use it, these are the best aftermarket bulbs out

It's easy to cut and splice in new bulbs like Riley suggested. I had to do that with my alpine kit when I had the same problem ordering new bulbs from them. Alpine sucks and you'll never get your money back from them.

If I were to go with a different HID kit, what would you recommend? Or would the PIAAs be a better call?

I'm not entirely sure which kit I have. I bought the car and it had these angel eyes on them. Based on the brightness I assumed they were the alpine because they look like the Alpine 20000k bulbs. Lately I've been driving around with only one angel eye working at night(turned the daytime running lights off) and it's frustrating. Heres a picture of them when they worked. My ballasts look similar to the ones of someone who did a review of the alpine kit. Im open to suggestions and if I have to get rid of the blue then I will.

I'm interested in knowing what other kits are out there as well for HID Angel eyes. I'm looking to get a pair for my 2012 135i
