Wheels look fantastic! Great choice - love the car as-is and wouldn't personally mess with the stance.

How do you get rid of the orange light on your head lights? The one that is in the far right corner and left hand corner of the head light if you are looking at the vehicle? Thanks

2008 - 2010 cars don't have the amber crap in the headlights. However, U.S. 2008 - 2010 M6s have an amber reflector on the front wheel arch. The taillights are slightly different as well and the 3rd (center) brake light changed as well. Also iDrive changes inside, but mechanically they are 99% the same for all years (2005 - 2010).

Cheers

Yep, those 2008 headlamps have amber LED corner lamps and turn signals.

The LED's are white / neutral in color when its off. They emit an amber light output when its turned on.

If your headlights and turn signals are original equipment LCI headlamps - the amber turn signal and parking light LED's are fixed permanently and cannot be replaced.

Actually you can but it wont be a simple job and wont be plug and play replacement.
