Angel eye quality provider?

Hey i have a 04 325i with stock halogens i wanted to get some angel eyes but..

1. I don't know of anywhere to get them online for cheap but great quality, so if you guys have a recommendations please tell me.

2. I have those ugly ass yellow daytime running lights so when i do install the angel eyes wouldn't it look ugly as fk to have yellow lights and white halo rings on at the same time how do i solve that problem?

3. Do people actually drive with just angel eyes and not use regular headlights at night? Are they that bright?

4. Do these kits require you to splice into any current wires?

1. www.umnitza.com Orion V2/V4 THE best angel eyes on the market. Orion Lites for budget

2. You need a diagnostic software such as Pa Soft to disable the DRL. Shouldn't cost more than $40 to get it done by someone else

3. They are bright but they should NOT be used in place of headlights. If it's dark then use your headlights. Usually if it's dusk and there's still light out I will turn on my fog lights along with my angel eyes.

4. Comes with a wiring harness, the connectors just pop in. All you need are the tools from your BMW tool kit (Both wrenches and pliers) http://fastm.com/m3/angeleyes_orionv2.html

So whats your setup currently, do you have halogens? Did you turn off the DRL so that the angel eyes would be used instead until night time when you actually need the headlights on?
Is yours wired so it has its own switches or when you turn the fog lights on they turn on as well? My only concern is that i have the yellow halogen lights so when i turn on the angel eyes everything is going to look really shitty.

Last do you know of any other providers so i can browse all of them? Not sure where to begin for finding trusted sellers.

I have factory xenon headlights. I have my DRL's coded off and I have added Umnitza V2 angel eyes to my headlights.

The angel eyes have no factor on when I use my headlights. When it's dark/getting dark or raining,etc I use my headlights just like anyone else would do on any other car.

My angel eyes are wired in the DIY that I provided so they are always on when the car is on, but I did add extra wiring/switch so I can control when they are on or off (my thread is stickied at the top of the section)

Is this http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1039437 the thread that shows how you wired them? I think i would also like to have them like always on when the car is on like the DRL since i will be coding those off.

Yes that's the vid I made. Yup, if you wire it to the ECU box in the fastm diy then they will be on when the key is in position 2 and when the car is on. Also wiring to the foot well light with the other trigger wire will allow them to be on when the interior lights are on (fade on/off)
