Exclamation

Hi! I repalce whith many led bulbs, there has to be a free error bulb or canbus led! but i already chage it because all the led bulbs that i teast are not pure white and i whant a pure white there has some blue tint, and its hard to find really good led buls, on the x1 has to be one that are 360 degees and it dont has to hace a led on the head and during the day are no so bright, so i decided to put the stock osram bulb that works better on day, i try w5w t10 xenon bulbs that are not led, are the same bulb but no transparent, are blue, but it didnt looks better becouse are not cool blue and dond bright much enough, the only led bulbs that are pure white are what some people calls them plasma led or super led but are dificult to find whith canbus, but they are, but the thing with this bulb is that it has the head that i dont like but i recomed that bulb if you want a pure white, have to teast to see, on the day and the night and if you dont find whith canbus, have to buy apart a regulator that it really works too
