Lightbulb Orion Angel Eyes install help in Boston

Guys, I'm planning to order the Orion Angel Eyes for my 2003 325i which has OEM halogens/w Philips Xtreme bulbs (doubt if its prefacelift or not).

Can anyone in Boston area pm me with a quote/availability to hook these up? Mine has DRL, so will need to disable that as well...

I know complete HID replacement is the best option but I just spent <1k on rotors and fr.ggin Thermostat, so no expensive goodies for now.

Depends on the dealer, some charge 1/2 or the full hour of labor.

Good idea. Get it from an authorized source

If you have issues for DIY, just follow our install resources or Jon's when you get them.

Guys thanks for pointing out the alternate sources..

Nick had done a fabulous job on my last order, so I can't make up my mind yet to cancel this order

For the DRL though I found that some other members have used xenix or similar colored bulbs. Anyone have a pic with these running in DRL mode?

If he did a fabulous job, don't reward someone else, reward him, keep your order with him.

keep in mind that some dealers have to charge a minimum of an hour, no less

so it could be between $105 and $120.....

just call around
