LED Angel Eyes, LED Bulbs, & LED Tail Lights Upgrade
 
Hello,

This is my FIRST POST :facepalm:

I am upgrading the entire lighting system of my car to LEDs, therefore I need your advise.

1.) LED Angel Eyes (Premium) White or Amber
2.) E46 LED Turn Signal Bulb Amber or White (I already have the clear corners)
3.) High Powered Sidemarker LED Bulb White or Amber
4.) LED Tail Lights Clear or Smoked
5.) E46 LED Reverse Light

Do you think if I were to just replace the OEM Halogen Bulbs to LED for the Tail Lights would it look better or should I go with the whole kit?

I hear Khoa from Khoalty gives good discounts specially when purchasing multiple items. BUT I am trying to get a hold of him. I e-mailed, & phoned him, but still now response?

Thanks Everybody :clap:

It's like a multi-fail aggregated into one single epic-fail of a post.

1.) LED Angel Eyes (Premium) White or Amber
This is a personal preference thing. You get what you want, not what we tell you to get.

2.) E46 LED Turn Signal Bulb Amber or White (I already have the clear corners)
Check with your local police department. Most places will tell you that you need amber signal bulbs. White would be illegal in most parts of the USA. Not sure about Canadia.

3.) High Powered Sidemarker LED Bulb White or Amber
Again, check with your local police.

4.) LED Tail Lights Clear or Smoked
Again, personal preference.

5.) E46 LED Reverse Light
Completely useless unless you're using high power LEDs. 1W LEDs will not light up too much.

LED Angel Eyes- I'd recommend a 6000k Xenon white kit, we carry WeissLicht LED Angel Eyes which is a solid option.

I prefer clear on these cars unless you are doing a smoked/black out theme.

Sedan Clear or Smoked Front Corners

Clear or Smoked Sidemarkers

Sedan Clear or Smoked LED Tail Lights

You can run our Version 3 LED Turn Signal and Sidemarker Bulbs for the front, side and reverse lights. You can also do them for the rear turn signals if you end up not purchasing LED tails.

1.) LED Angel Eyes (Premium) White or Amber
Orion V2 Multi-Color Kit - Available for most models now. If you have a special model you would like built, we have sizes for anything now.
Orion V2 - Brightest, Longest Lasting, Best Fitting Angel Eyes Kit


2.) E46 LED Turn Signal Bulb Amber or White (I already have the clear corners)

1156/1157/7440/3157/3457 LED V4 Bulbs - These multi-directional bulbs fit most any application turn signals and use SMD high power LED not found in your typical eBay unbranded cheaper alternatives.

3.) High Powered Sidemarker LED Bulb White or Amber
V4 Side LED - T10/194 - small "peanut" LED bulbs that are almost as bright as their larger 1156 cousins

4.) LED Tail Lights Clear or Smoked

Eagle Eyes are a good choice, they are on our site.

5.) E46 LED Reverse Light
1156/1157/7440/3157/3457 LED V4 Bulbs -

Do you think if I were to just replace the OEM Halogen Bulbs to LED for the Tail Lights would it look better or should I go with the whole kit?

I would recommend giving us a call, we're also on Skype.

Thank You Jlevi & Umnitza.

You both have great service and I appreciate the fast reply :)

I have been trying to reach Khoalty, and left them a message but no response it's been two days :thumbdwn:

Now I am open to purchase from any of you guys and looking for a good discount. Only reason I am willing to purchase from Khoalty is because of their price.

When the project is completed I can certainly put it up on here and YouTube and mention where I bought it from.

Please PM me the price, :thanks:

KH0 02-24-2011 03:19 PM

AND any one else know how to contact Khoalty?

infinite012 02-24-2011 03:20 PM

Send them another e-mail? Do you have to order now?

Well the sooner the better I guess.

Did you order anything from them before?

Thanks.

hey hey, sent you a PM sorry.. didn't see your emails coming through, we've been working on something pretty cool that will be up and live this weekend, it's literally been consuming our lives, but worth it so your questions get answered /before/ you ask them :)

1.) LED Angel Eyes (Premium) White or Amber
[ours are installed on a LOT of members cars here, great deal, great price, and quality as always.. i mean i don't know if ours can be beat on a desk with a hammer but how often are you going to be doing this when they're in your headlights? to me this is just a marketing hype tactic]


2.) E46 LED Turn Signal Bulb Amber or White (I already have the clear corners)
[you can get ours that light up amber, looks white in the housing but lights amber, brighter than most since we use the tower style led's, don't fall for the 'v3' or 'v4' other vendors do, pretty much all these led bulbs are the same now, these require a resistor to not have super fast blinkers']


3.) High Powered Sidemarker LED Bulb White or Amber
[either pay a few bucks from us or pay 10+ from the others, again you can get the white look ones that light up amber, no errors]


4.) LED Tail Lights Clear or Smoked
[everyone sells the same ones, eagle eyes is the brand that makes the best ones, ours are just better priced than the other two that've been talking here]


5.) E46 LED Reverse Light
[same deal as the turn signal led bulb]

you look at our license plate light too? either spend 5-6 times the amount and get a 'orions belt v5 ultra smd-led-xtc' version or get ours, if you need anything else reply to my PM.

Hi,

I am new to the group but not new to the automotive industry. I just bought a 2001 BMW 330ci with HID headlights and was wondering if some one sold a set of lights that would include: smoked marker lights, smoked turn signal lights and smoked tail lights. I also was wondering if someone knew where i could get a set of smoked heat light lenses. Like a stated, my headlights are HIDs and want to leave them as is but I want the smoked lenses and I also want to add the angel eyes.

Any help is appreciated and if you can get me a good deal on everything, I am willing to buy the parts now.

thank you

Lets have the vendors battle it out on who gives the lowest price !!!

Still umnitza though

BBBoy323i 10-02-2012 03:27 PM

Khoalty ftw a+ service and great prices. So far never let me down! Eagle eye tailights look awesome and all bug too bright IMO. I have them and I feel that every time I brake I blind people, especially at night. I'm looking to put smoke film over the brake light, you should too unless you want a lot of haters. For angel eyes the best brand for the money is umnitza Orion lite opaque. Another option for the front corners is khoalty switchback LEDs though I got the first batch and they were faulty...they light up white when driving and change to amber when signaling, kind of like the new Audi style. Um go with depo side markers from khoalty price is good. And reverse lights you should look into HIDs. I have LEDs and IMO they are not bright enough because I have tinted windows. Hoped this helped, now check out khoalty, oh and all this is personal preference btw except for the led tailights, depo and eagle eye are the best companies.
