Neither one is a headlight. Oh wait, that's a similarity, not a difference.

Since you're in class and attentive, today's lecture will be on the use of apostrophes. An apostrophe is used as a place marker for omitted letters, or in your case numbers, in abbreviated words (numbers). Therefore, when abbreviating 2009, it would be '09.

Apostrophes are also used in contractions and possessive nouns, but that's another lecture.

tbh, not knowing the difference between halo and angel eyes is fair enough.

OP, make sure you get LED angel eyes/halos

Can't find a place to buy parts? Can't figure out AE and halos are the same damn thing?! With threads like these, you're not going to last very long around here....

However, in the spirit of giving you a chance, search for the Angel Eyes DIY because it's really easy to make your own. Don't try to install them yourself, though. Be sure to take them to the dealership for installation, and demand they use only the BMW AE-04 fluid. If they say no or act like they don't know what you're talking about, curse their souls and head to the next closest dealership.

Be sure to post pics when you're done. We love pics. It's easier than reading.

I feel for you man, its ok. People are gonna give you a hard time because they get their goodies off by being internet bullies when they can't even beat their way out of a paper bag. It's their way of getting back at society for not being accepted as a popular kid in high school... Good luck man.
