323 Angel Eyes Question........
 
I just bought some angel eyes for my 1999 323i. I hear that I cannot have HID's with angels because they will melt them. I would like something along with the angel eyes to increase visibility at night and to make the car look better of course......help

Go ahead and don't worry...nothing will happen to the halos...no melting..
I already installed them on my older e36 and they worked fine for more than 3 years..

Actually the opposite is true. A halogen bulb for your car run @ approx 50 - 100 watts which run MUCH hotter then HID (high intensity discharge). HID bulbs only require 25 - 35 watts to run and have roughly 4 - 6x the light output. Doesn't take a degree to figure that one out.

:werd: HIDs run at higher light output but with LESS energy and heat expenditure.
