Good parking light replacement options?

Hey folks, installed philips diamond vision H7 for low beams and wanted to swap out my parking lights which were too yellow, so I installed "iJDMTOY 8-SMD Error Free BA9 64132 H6W LED Bulbs" which are MUCH bluer than my philips head lights and throw errors (even though the title of the item says error free, i've contacted iJDMTOY and they say it's just something that happens with certain bulbs and that title doesn't necessarily mean every bulb will be error free...stupid, i know). But now i have yellow turn signal lights, white low beams, and blue parking lights.

Anyone have any good alternatives to the parking lights that match the 5000K philips diamond visions as well as don't throw error signals??

Thanks!

I am in the same boat. Just picked up a 2015 328i with halogen headlights. I have the Diamond Vision H7 on order for the lows. But need to figure out a parking light and DRL solution. I don't want to deal with LEDs and coding, so are there any halogen replacements in those sizes that would offer a whiter look like the Diamond Visions?

Check out JDM ASTAR on amazon. I have several led bulbs from them for parking/turn and drls on my halogen headlamps.

You WILL have to code any LED bulb you install......here is your starting point to coding.........http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=429

thanks for the link.

any idea if there are a halogen replacement with a whiter output, as opposed to going to LED?
