BMW 525xi Headlight Bulb / 525xi Fog Light Bulb Frequently Asked Questions
Is the price listed for a single 525xi bulb or is it for the pair?
All the PIAA and Nokya bulbs we sell for your 525xi are sold by the pair. By paying the listed price, you get both bulbs. We do not have the bulbs packaged for individual sale.
How long will these PIAA / Nokya bulbs last in my BMW 525xi?
Generally speaking, if the bulbs are installed properly without leaving any dirt or oil on the surface, you could expect them to last 1-2 years. If you have any blowouts within the first couple of months, please let us know and we will be happy to replace them for you.
Do you carry BLUE headlight or fog light bulbs for my BMW 525xi?
There are only a few companies that produce truly BLUE light bulbs (not super white with a blue tint, but actually royal blue). We do not carry these types of bulbs as the coating is usually very dark resulting in a very dim beam, making them a safety hazard.
Which bulbs are better: Nokya, Sylvania, Luminics, etc. ?
Considering the price, Nokya bulbs are by far the best bargain we have available for your 525xi fog lights or headlights. Sylvania are very pale color-wise (even worse than PIAA), Luminics have an overall higher defect ratio, and most other brands do not stack up to Nokya quality (let alone PIAA).
Will these bulbs burn the wire harnesses on my BMW 525xi?
Your 525xi’s stock wire harness is not designed to withstand continuous extended usage. For that reason, we offer Nokya Replacement Harnesses to ensure long term proper lighting on your 525xi. They are also a far cheaper alternative to buying 525xi factory harnesses which lack the heat capacity of the Nokya 525xi harnesses.
Are these bulbs brighter than my BMW 525xi’s stock Headlight / Foglight bulbs?
No. Contrary to popular belief, aftermarket bulbs add color to your high beams / low beams / fog lights by adding a tint to the glass. This tint results in a nicer beam, but blocks out a small amount of light, resulting in a slightly dimmer beam than your stock clear 525xi bulb would have. The color comes at the price of a LITTLE bit of brightness, but most people do not notice the difference.
Why Should I Buy Aftermarket Bulbs for My BMW 525xi’s Headlights / Fog lights?
First off, the stock bulbs on your 525xi are going to wear out eventually. Replacing your bulbs with aftermarket headlight bulbs (or fog light bulbs) and keeping your OEM headlight bulbs for spares can be a good way to make sure you are always driving safe and minimize your chances of getting a time wasting fix-it ticket.
Also, changing your headlight bulbs can be an inexpensive, quick, and easy way to give your 525xi a nice personalized touch that unlike many upgrades, you can actually SEE while driving.
