Broke one of my rings

I was trying to reposition my angel eyes and as a result I broke one of them. Is there a way I can get a replacement for just one (or two) rings? But the thing is, how do I know if mine are CCFL or DDEs? What's the difference? I could best describe my rings as plastic, or glass, and the actual "bulb" not plastic notched casing, broke in half. I have all my ballasts and stuff still available btw. Can any vendors give my an approx. price for just the rings AND also a price for just Predator angel eyes (just incase I want to upgrade to the newer type) WITHOUT the ballasts and stuff.

We have replacement rings available but I cannot guarantee the color will match as the non-Predator kits use different bulbs so it depends on what you have installed. CCFL is just the technology for modern DDE systems so there is no difference but there are different colors of CCFL based rings.

We have the Predator Upgrade Package available for $129.99 which upgrades your rings and ballasts (recommended to upgrade ballasts at same time as connectors vary between older kits).

Thanks. What's the difference between the $200 predators and the upgrade? why is there such a price difference between the two?

Also, I noticed that my current angel eyes don't have any backing on them so the lights somewhat diffuse through the back and reflect of the shiny trim of the headlights, would the Predators have some sort of backing to eliminate such occurrences?

The $200 is a complete kit that includes our wiring harness, all the necessary taps and connectors etc...

The rings do have a chrome backing to prevent glare into the headlights.

Alright. Thanks for all the help. I'll prob just get the replacement rings for now (since i'm broke) and order the upgrade in a couple months. And I couldn't find the replacement rings on your site (but I did in Umnitza's site), can you link me? And I'm assuming that whatever the price of the replacement ring is per ring right and not as a pair?
