I bought Angel Eyes for my 325 like 2-3 years ago for $80 from JLevi. Im pretty sure the cost of wires didnt go up in that time to $200.

They have more than likely upgraded the technology since then. There are kits you can buy for cheap, or you can buy the best quality on the market from JLevi.

Are you talking about the Predator Chromiums versus others? YES.
I have DDE Heated Raptors, and they're absolute CRAP. I have done about everything and they still don't work properly. I've had them on for about a year.
I have installed multiple sets of the Predator Chromiums on other M3's and they all look and work much better than mine and others I've seen. I'm putting Predator Chromiums on my car as soon as it warms up.

As for if they're worth it to own, that's up to you. Do you like how they look? They look aftermarket, but do not look gaudy. I am very impressed by their classy looks, and you will get a lot of attention for having them. They are a very good investment that you will be very happy with.

I bought DDE Non-heated raptors for $150 shipped, they have been in the car for 6 months and I haven't had any problems with them.

I did my research and settled on the raptors -- at the time, Predator Chromium would have run me around $250.

These Predator Chromiums look really sick. Do they also come in two light kits instead of four? What I mean is, just doing the high beams is more of a stock look - am I right? That's how the 540's came from the factory, with just the high beams wrapped, right? Any of you guys just do the two instead of all four?

These include rings for all 4. The original E39 design was also all 4 rings, not just the high beams.

I don't think it's worth it, but I'll probably end up getting it.

They're "worth it" if you really like them.

I don't think they're worth the price they are being sold for.

makes your car really stand out, but not to much so. at night in the drag strip, if there's a line of 100 cars, you can tell which one is yours from far away with angel eyes. its such a nice touch.

i bought my ddes off of ebay...just the ccfls and the ignitors 100


did the wiring myself super easy

bought the "remote kit" from jlevisw for 10 ...all it was, a standard automotive relay and a wire ...any automotive store has them for under 5 bucks

either around 110 dollars and wire it yourself..which is super simple

or pay 200-250 for premade harness

no question imo

If you have some extra cash laying around, then get it. Do I think it's worth it? I guess so. Was I happy after installing it? Definately yes!!! One of my most cheapest mods that made such a big difference asthetically.
