f20 Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Change

Hi guys! I got my new 116i sport line, white just a couple of days ago. The car is really amazing, but I hate the yellowish daytime lights (xenons were out of budget).
I need to change the bulbs, to get white or cool blue color. I don't care about the main lights, I only want to change the DRLs. Moreover I don't need led, just white or at least less yellow light.
Does anyone know the specifications of the bulbs, any good brand, and if I can change them on my own?
I don't think I will have a problem with changing the bulbs (eg. overheating or error messages)

I purchased both the MTEC DRL and Sidelight bulbs from HID Direct and they are a fantastic improvement! I also upgraded the dipped and main beam bulbs with Osram Nighbreakers (limited edition ones) and they have made what was a dangerously dim set of headlights exceptional

I have some before shots, but not after (as i promised some in one of the threads) will try to get some after shots and get them uploaded!

I have had these bulbs in my car for months and not a single bulb error so you should be fine. The DRL and Sidelight bulbs are very simple to change, the main beam bulbs on the other hand can be abit tricky to work with, i have relatively small hands and it was still a struggle"
