Angel eye vs xenons

Hi guys so recently ive been contimplating on whether to get angel eyes or xenons for my 2001 prefacelifted 325i sedan. The angel eyes are much cheaper and i was just wondering for all of you guys out there with xenons is it worth the wait or should i just go with the angel eyes of theres not that much of a difference between the two.
Thank you

Are you asking if you should go with cheap projector headlights or Stock bmw projector headlights?

Your question doesn't really make sense, you are comparing apples to oranges: "halos"(AEs) compared to a headlight(xenon)

Don't go cheap, get the OE preface projector xenons or go with a retrofit.

Xenon is just the chemical element in the bulb that makes up the "HID" output, HIDs=Xenon, so any HID setup is technically "xenon"

Just FYI, I picked up OE xenons for a preface sedan just like yours for $250 that were in great shape, easy plug and play as well.

My Ride: is a truck.
When you find out if you want to upgrade, let me know. I have a set of xenons I can set up for pre-face sedan and I can get angel eyes for them. Pretty much plug and play for the headlights but the angel eyes take a bit more wiring. There is YouTube videos to show the process though.
