You can buy new H8 bulbs to make them white, links below to someone who has done these on E81 which should be same as your E82

Ok, seems i have the leds to go into those holders. maybe i will look to change myself instead of buying new complete units.
Are they easy to remove? do i have to remove the headlight to get at them?
thanks
