Looking for LEDs

Want to upgrade halogen headlight with LEDs. Looking for white but not too bright; not too many lumens, maybe 6000 and 6000 kelvins. Really hate people with blinding lights. Please suggest because hard too choose since so many options. Thanks

Bulbs or lamps? If it's bulbs this is my experience:

If lamps it's far more complicated, as the wiring isn't the same.

I only replaced the halogen bulb with some LED following Billfitz post. Its the good amount of brightness. Also, this will not blind anyone since the LED don't point directly to the front.

If you do in fact have a 2009 328, then you've posted in the wrong forums. I suggest you post your question in the E90 forums, not the F30.
