Exclamation Thoughts on angel eyes?

Ive been shopping around for some new lights to upgrade from halogen to xenon HID. My friend has the same car as I with these same headlights and his look great. Any comments or recommendations? This is what I found.

Their projectors on those suck, but livable.
I have Depo brand for 2 years now. Still good.

nice. All you need to do is upgrade the angel eyes. Those are the ones that I did have on my car. I don't see many people with them. If you notice the inner (high beam drl) lights, the cover that wraps around them resemble the barrel of a machine gun. I think the oem one, which everybody has is ugly, the one with the 3 chrome rings.

I always thought xenon was in reference to the bulbs, not the headlight assembly.

it is, but there are also headlight assemblies made for xenons, and there are ones for halogens. so we make it short by calling the assemblies that so you can tell the difference

Off topic, have you seen someone else with more posts than yourself? Those numbers are staggering. I got dizzy looking at it like someone would looking up at a skyscraper from ground level, or from all the way up top.

You know, I see cyberkaa and his posts quite frequently, and actually almost met him at the San Bruno meet (I think the guy either showed up later in or not at all. I left because it was too cold). I never even noticed the 100k posts.... Wow

yeah, nowadays, most of the answers come from people PMing me. if those counted as posts, i'd probably be well over 100k at this point
