Smile Need help on DDE's for my X5.

What do you DDE expert's think of these? I like how the rings actually fit around the whole highbeam light. I would buy the kits from our sponsors, but the high beam rings come up too short. I was just wondering what you all thought about the package? I think it's pretty good.

Here's the link..

I believe he has the "short" highbeam rings too. Thanks for the heads up though.

I wonder if you can buy the ones on ebay, because they look so much better than the ones our sponsors carry, size wise . Then order the wiring harness from JLevi or Umnitza? My brother is really interested in these also

They aren't Chromiums.
We are exclusive on Chromiums, no matter what anyone chooses to "say" - it's a product that we exclusively carry.

Yeah I know Matt, didn't mean to make it sound the way it was said. What do you honestly think of the kit?

Are the new Chromium's resized?

They are not resized. If you want us to get you a resized set, we can do a special order.

I think they look pretty good...to me though, the way how the rings are is just a design factor on what you like or dislike. As for how bright they are, i really couldn't tell you unless I saw them in person. I think if thats what you like, then go for it! Whatever you decide to do, the best of luck to you and I am sure it will look great.

If you decide to buy some 'exclusive' Dynamic Halos instead, let me know.

For the X5. I go with the OEM headlight. I've seen a couple of the Thin Line that Umnitza offers and even some on ebay. They would never look good on a X5 unless, if someone acutally designed a perfect fit ring around the perimeter housing of the headlight.

And they look too tacky. You have wire exposing etc.

OEM is that way to go.

They didn't have OEM back in 2002. Only the newer X5's have them.

You cannot retrofit the 2004 without significant modifications.

Once again, thanks to the competition, we are able to match ANY price on a better product that our competitors offer. Exclusive to us - Chromiums available at ANY competitive price.
