The angel eyes have been giving me some problems; missing a few leds on 2 of the rings. Don't know if khoalty will replace the rings since I only bought them with a 3 month warranty.

You'll probably have to buy a replacement ring which I don't recommend. Read my thread below for more details.

IMO I think you should loose the running lights since you have halos now , those become your running lights just like another member said. I also have the Khoalty Angle Eyes I actually love them better then CCFL's there brighter and look cleaner and as for the 3 LEDs going bad in Khoalty's AE Apple4Life has a simple solution for it. Car looks good btw

these angels eyes kinda suck. dont get me wrong op i think they look good. but mine had a crappy wiring harness when i got them so my dad took them into work and had his electricians fix the harness and now i think a few of the leds might be out on one of my rings.

not all angel eyes suck.
For years you've been putting up with failures.
It all started with the original DDE with tiny 5W LED that couldn't light up a dark room, then came the massive light boxes with fiber optics, then the relatively fragile CCFL tech, and finally LED.

However at each successive revision, they became more and more reliable, until they culminated with the current Orion V2.
If you are having problems with your kit or don't have one but want ultimate reliability and safety, look at the Orion V2.

Brandon.
