That's pretty deep there Doc. Couldn't it just be that they are lights in the front of the car and that's why people look at them???

I guess you were right..they are eyes after all. That must be the newest version of DDEs. For $120 more do they make the pupil in CF?

I love them. I have the stock ones on my E92.. I'm thinking of making it brighter (there's a DIY at E90post).

Say what? I don't get what you're saying here. You don't mean to say that adding $200 glowing ring thingies to your halogen headlights generates greater light output than stock xenon headlights.

I was going to comment on that Russ... but figured he just got his learner's permit last weekend, and would let him at least think he made a reasonable point.

Just a heads up.."City Lights", "Driving Lights" and "Demon Eyes" are all three different things.

pics of my newly installed fleabay angels

Finally got round to fitting the angel eyes I got off Fleabay a month ago. I must say I think they look great if I do say so myself. La moglie is also pleased which is a bonus...now I just need to persuade her to like the sports bumper which she says she hates :? ....next on my list. m3 mirrors off at the mo for minor adaptations but will be back on soon...



i keep telling myself to ditch the roofrack bike carriers in favour of something more co-ordinated looking too ...well, all in good time. :roll:

Love 'em

At first I didn't see the point...My son got them from Matt at Umnitza and put them on for me. I LOVE THEM! Nothing customizes your car from other BMWs so cheaply and everyone that sees them wants to know where I got them, how much, and how hard are they to install. Great 1st mod!

I was trying to imagine my car without them and I came to the conclusion that my car would be naked without them.
