Angel eyes

I have 325i 2001, and I have xenon headlights but want to install angels eyes so I have a couple of questions
1.my low beams are yellow is that because of the bulb or do the headlights not accept a higher type of bulb
2. I have drl so chances are angel eyes won't look that good so if buy new headlights will the inculded angel eyes replace the daytime running lights or will they be low beams be the drl?

it's the bulb.
even if you buy new headlights, the DRLs will still be there. only way to turn them off is by coding.

Read my bulb guide to see why the light for the low beam is yellow.
