are they normal bulbs that can be replaced ?

are the PIAA angel eyes BMW specific ones the best aftermarket ones to get for this vehicle ?

or if so could i get any basic xenon bulb and swap em out ?

and how hard is it to do as i have not seen the nuts and bolts on the car, we get it saturday morning in 2 days so until i get some time under the hood i dont know what to expect and questions i have not yet asked .

Yes, the bulbs for non-xenon headlights is H7.

Are you talking about "xenon-style" bulbs? Then it is an easy swap. Otherwise, for real xenon's you will need to install an HID kit. That's a little bit more involved.

You can change the H7 to anything.

if you want to upgrade your OEM angel eyes to match your white headlight bulbs, check these out:

This basically replace the bulb that powers the OEM angel eyes with a powerful LED device. They are 50% brighter than PIAA's system!
