Question OEM angel eye bulb

I want to know which type bulb is used in 5 series with stock angel eyes. I installed replica angel eyes with Led, but the light is not bright enough, so I want to replace the bulbs with better one.

The bulb used in the factory AE headlights for E39 5 series is, believe it or not, a boating bulb. Meaning its a bulb commonly found on boats. A friend went from the standard 10W bulb to a 20W bulb for a year without issues..
