Which E46 Halos should I get?

Going to be getting halo headlights pretty soon and I'm wondering which ones I should get for my 2000 323i.
I'd prefer ones that can change color but I am on a slight budget so I'm not gonna be picky.
Really I'm going for low price and reliability.
Any recommended manufacturers/types?

Your best bet are the Orion V2's but for a budget go with these: http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e46-led-angel-eyes.html

The color changing halo's are very tacky.

Awesome, exactly what I was looking for thank you.

Yeah I was thinking color changing would be a cool feature to have but it isn't necessary

Nice, they do look good. I'll check those out too. Would you be able to link me to the diy? I couldn't find it
