I'd probably have Angel Eyes if they weren't so bright. I want a subtle look, not a look where people are flashing their middle fingers at me because they think my Angel Eyes are my high beams.

They aren't too bright, they are just right:

Funny how the fog light on the drivers side is also dimmed compared to the passenger side.

Agreed with a few of the posts here. Its annoying when some sponsors advertises their AEs as being the brightest on the market. I want a subtle look, OEM looking, not the whitest, brightest set out there. Sure they have other alternatives, but it seems like an overwhelming number of them have these as their flagship model.

There is also a DIY on here on how to install a rheostat to dim them to your liking.

HA, another strike for crapnitza. Evey thing they tell you is lies and every pic is photoshopped.

Man I hate when I see you guys post, thank goodness you were banned from other BMW boards, cant wait till you get your crap outta this forum.

Orion crap from umnitza will be the worst decision in your life, guys. They are EXTREMELY bright in real life, they have this stupid blue hue which makes them seem like they are blue and not white, and they look like a Christmas tree in day light.

Get the P46 kit form depo or retro fit an oem housing. The P46 kit is much less expensive though. You need a projector to aim the light properly and that has a cut-off. Its been said many times, but when you put an HID bulb in a halogen housing the light will be scattered improperly and blind oncoming traffic. Please don't be that guy that burns peoples retinas.

That's why CCFLS are the only option. LED's are too cheesy
