Angle eyes lingo?

I know there are probably post about this. . . but i was looking through the sticky trying to find it, and didn't have any luck.

I just got a 330ci, 04' and I am looking to obviously find angel eyes.
I see all the different types, but what really is chromium titatium, it all confuses me.

basically what I want to know it, Which ones are the brightest? I don't like the stock lights on the 330ci, a little to dull for me, im looking for something bright!

just let me know anything thing helps. Completely new to the BMW world.

Chromium is model type (CCFL based) under the Predator brand name (sold by Umnitza) There are also a few others Umnitza sells like Orions (LED based) and Thinline (also CCFL).

Other vendors sell similar products but there a small differences that may or may not matter to you. Each vendor also sells them at different prices.

Also be aware that Umnitza sells more than one color CCFL-based angel eyes while all the others do not. JLeviSW and Modbargains (among a few others I'm sure) are vendors for Umnitza.

Other sources are Khoaly and EAS (I'm sure I'm missing some)


Choose however you please

For the 04 coupe, you need to make sure you purchase the facelift kit. We offer the Predator Chromiums for Facelift E46 Coupe and Convertible which have specific sized rings for the updated headlights. These have a chrome backing and plastic bezel to offer a full xenon white output that does not bleed into the housing. Our kits also come with all the necessary wiring, installation materials and guide to get you started. They are also backed by our lifetime warranty.

We have a thread specifically for this, it will show the differences between CCFL and LED with full pictures, videos and a FAQ:

angel eyes will not change how your stock lights will look. they have nothing to do with it. if you're looking to change your lows, you need to look for h7 bulbs (for halogen) or d2s (for xenons)

as for angel eyes, just contact EAS they will help you and show you the right path.

If I recall correctly an 04 330ci is the facelift version where you need to bake your headlights to put in angel eyes.
