You can get Predator Chromium Angel Eyes. I would Recommend 3000k. That would give you the most OEM look you want. MyCarr Angel eyes don't have 3000k color yet, so that really isn't an option.

Every kit comes with all 4 angel eyes. So I think it would be best to put them on all. It would look the cleanest

The kits come with 4 rings - it would look best complete.

Do you have Halogen or Xenon headlights? The 6000K looks best with Xenon - for the OEM look, 4500K is best.

We have a link here that will show you pictures, videos and an in-depth FAQ on angel eyes, I would suggest taking a look, it may answer some questions you haven't thought of yet:

do all four lights (of course), get 6k halos, and upgrade to 6k xenon headlights.

Car looks great

That's up to you. We have put together a 10-page instruction manual for installation of the MYCARR Angel Eye kit on an e46 M3. Steps will go over all needed procedures and give 2 variables for operation: Always on vs Switched on.

You're looking at about 1 hour of labor at most.

We're the only ones that offer rings that match OE Colors.

But you might want to look at this first:
