Question Need help buying Halos

What do you guys think about these halos from Bimmian
The MyCarr 60+ LED Halos. Are they worth buying or should buy them from a different place. Their about $190

You can't go wrong with buying the halos from any of the sponsors. ModBargains and EAS are very good.

Or this from the rear 3/4 and sides:


Or this from the side (note dark side markers and grill not applicable unless you have an M3).


Here are some very prominent cars that have had our parts installed:





Some customer comments:
For 5+ years, we've led innovation on angel eyes and continued to support these products and improve upon existing technology of the day. Predator Orion V2 continues our innovation standard. And, yes, our product does do the talking:

I also have seen the V1 in person and the V2 is possibly 50% brighter, its that good.

This is one of the cheapest mod and it truly only take 45 mins and i am an amateur..

I like the way they are thicker and feel less fragile. Installation was a breeze.
I highly recommend these bad boys!
Thanks Matt

I recommend going with the MyCarr Brand. We have carried their setup for over 4.5 years now and they have proven to be a reliable choice for a complete kit that you can retrofit into your existing housings.

The CCFLs are a more affordable kit but do use ballasts so there is one extra installation step and they do experience the cold start issue when first turned on. With that said, it's proven technology that works well for this application.

The LEDs are the newer technology that features no cold start issues and is brighter than the CCFL setup. They will also be more reliable as they do not require ballasts and are a direct connect to the harness.

Both kits include a full wiring harness and are a direct install on your car.

Vendors will always push their own products.

DDM Tuning has the best prices for halos, hands down. And they're the only ones that offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY. That is important. Lighting products like these go bad all the time. They're ALL made in Taiwan and China, no matter what anyone tells you.

Except that DDM sells a lower quality product than orion. Here is what the Orion looks like

Supposedly nothing - they do fit the best. There are plenty of M3-owners that would testify.

auroras are angel eyes made specifically for e46. Definitely not "one size fits all" applications.

We'll have to add these quotes to the list above.
