    Yellow low beams 01 740il E38

    I have been on a quest to find some yellow low beams for my baby Ive got yellow 2500k dogs and absolutely love them now I just want the low/high beams in yellow so they all match up. Id really like to find them in 2400k but 2500k would be fine. Does anyone have any suggestions for me on this topic?

    Your headlights will most likely be H7 Halogens. PIAA makes a decent bulb here. http://www.piaa.com/store/p/577-H7-I...gen-Bulbs.aspx

    The LEDs and HIDs I see are normally 3500K.

    I would buy a decent bulb. Any $20 D2S will be a meh grade. I would try a quality 3000K bulb first: https://www.theretrofitsource.com/d2...reselect=49563

    A true 2K is going to be orange. They will be trash for actual light output.

    Yeah I saw those $20 d2s also, and thought there was no way I would want a cheap bulb. I do appreciate the link (ZEKTI) to the site I took a look earlier and I think I will be ordering their 3000k bulbs as I cannot find anything to match my fogs 2500k /or/ at least a decent bulb in 3000k hids

    As for the 2000k I'm looking for 2400k-2500k if anyone has anywhere to find these d2s bulbs that aren't garbage but actual quality I will wait till Friday to buy from retrofit thanks all who reply!
