One pice projectors for my 2001 325i...,,,what do you guys think?

I was thinking of getting these one pice projectors w/ the clear corners for my 2001 325i 4D.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ME:X:AAQ:US:11

Will I be able to convert these to HID's with angel eyes? That's what I really want, and I like the look of it all being one piece.

Thanks,

says they already have angel eyes... probably LED or incandescent, which while not as bright as CCFL will be a helluva lot easier to keep working. i'm beginning to think CCFL halos are more trouble than they're worth.

as for HID, you can get a retro-fit kit for $200-$300 and use that. don't really know how good the projector lense is though.... try it. it's only $150. :-)

I'm not sure if these have undergone revisions since they were first released but I do remember a few fanatics purchasing them and having fitment/leaking issues.

I personally prefer the OEM style like the DEPO projectors we package with our Projector46's.

Anyone have a good experience with the one piece headlights. I really like the sleek look of it being one piece. If you have used another brand or know of another site where I can get something decent please let me know. I am new to BMW's and want to do this the right way.
