Default Change DRL/halo color

Has anyone been successful in changing the color of their DRL/halo lights without buying upwards of $200 LEDs?

I'd love to be able to buy a nice low cost LED an not get any errors. If no one has been able to do it I guess I'll buy the factory incandescent bulb.

if youíre trying to change from the standard yellow to a cool bluish color, iíve had good success with a cheap pair off amazon on my LCI E60 with H8 angel eye bulbs

hereís the one i got hereís the one i got

with these bulbs, i havenít been able to fit the dust cover back on the headlight unit because of the heatsink, but iíve had them off for about 8 months with no problem, though there are universal dust covers that can fit in just for extra protection

iíve coded the bulb checks out because the lights would flicker when the engine started, but they never threw any error codes before the coding

I'm digging the ice blue, but I need to match the fogs at a minimum. I also am throwing a code. Do you by chance use Carly for coding?

I installed HID 35 watts in the DRL/Halo ring which in my opinion, looks brighter than any LEDs i've used. Only thing is, I used a 'Digital ballast' over the standard, because for some reason it would not power on with the standard(ending up needing a relay to get it on..a whole set of wires).

The Digital was a easy a PnP neater and no extra wires or relay was needed

I used the Carly app to cancel out to cancel out the errors

I just removed the Angel eyes bulb out error checks with Carly so I wouldn't get any errors on startup.
