Hey so one of my headlight bulbs turned purple (about to fail) so i wanna replace both of them at the same time. i have an 06 e60 m5 so i understand it takes d2s bulbs. Can i just buy any d2s bulb or does it have to be a certain kind? also what do you recommend. Don't really care for anything fancy, just oem look. I keep hearing horror stories about dealers charging like $250 a bulb

Buy from theretrofitsource.com they have the best selection of bulbs and they're authentic not the fake stuff everywhere else sells. I run the OSRAM CBI bulbs and they're awesome! Philips just released a couple of new bulbs that are direct competitors.

Make sure you double check what bulb you have I run the D1S.

Osram CBI is great, there is also the Philips Extreme Vision which is a brand new top notch bulb as well
