Fog light bulbs - anyone change these?

I know there has been a couple of posts on this topic.

Has anyone changed these successfully to a matching white light?

What would you recommend and does replacing cause any errors please?

Did a lot of searching on the forums and much divided opinions. After much deliberation, have ordered a pair of Diamomd Vision 5000k. Couldn't see any F30 owners go with this but raved on a forum to do with "4 circles". Crystal visions 4300k was my other option, but some have reported a slight yellow tint compared to the xenons.

I will know once the bulbs and the car arrive (not too long now)...

Will let you know. The car should be arriving at the dealer this week, so not long! Hopefully the bulbs will be here too...

Never done it before, but seems easy enough..

Garage List
On my 'to do' list. Have spotted the reflection of the fog lights coming on with the turn signal a few times now and the stock bulbs look horrible.

I'm going the other way and going for full on yellow.

I've got some Lamin-X for the complete euro look

They are pretty easy to fit, but easier if you can jack the car up slightly to increase the gap in the wheel arch.
