Question BMW X5 angel eyes...

A friend of mine has a BMW X5 (E70) and it the halogen angel eyes as standard. He has recently fitted "xenon-look" ice white halogen bulbs in the dipped and main beams. However, the angel eyes which came as standard on the X5 now look out of place.

So, what's the best way to match the stock angel eyes to the xenon-look bulbs?

Is it as simple as fitting a H8 bulb of 5000k temperature to the angel eyes?

Or does he have to actually replace the angel eye rings themselves?

He has to order led bulbs for the halos. Done.

Its just a simple bulb replacement. You don't need to remove the actual rings themselves. The total install time should only take you a couple minutes.
This will give him exactly the look he is going for:
