I have just recently installed angel eyes. But I had daytime lights running all the time. So a just information, to re-program their in Off position takes 10-15 min. My friends in shop did this without any problems and also update my ECU software for newer version.

My advice to you Umnitza V2 60 LED, there don't required any ballast or extra power supply. It's very bright during the day. I can make a picture for you during day light. About a shop charges, just don't agree for one hour labor, because it's only 15 min to do so. Shop around.

^^^ How do you manage to get such a good picture of them at night? I've tried with three different cameras and the AE's always "blind" them. They are just point and shoot cameras though.

It has been done by EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS. I was changing a shutter speed mode between 800-1400. I can send you more picture, let me know.

what you should do is LED strip the whole top windshield and front bumper so it looks like a Boeing 747 coming down the highway

Yeah, I saw that in the metadata. That seems to be a popular camera on the forums. I might need to look into getting one.

Unique mod on the BMW, not feeling it though on a BMW, as the trademark is angel eyes. I thought about doing that to my wifes 2002 Audi A6, but would look out of place on the model since they never came with them.....then again, the E46 never came with angel eyes. Again, props to you. I love seeing different stuff, love it or hate it.

EDIT:
So before I catch flack for not searching before posting: I DID find this thread: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...ight=led+strip

but.. dunno how I feel about it, hahah.


I've actually ordered them off of eBay and they came in yesterday.
Still waiting to install them on my car. Problem is...i dont know how yet (as im still new and fresh to DIY's). Reason why i bought them was because they were cheap as hell...like $20 with shipping lol.

Anybody know of threads or DIY's that show you how to connect LED's or how to find a power source that is suitable for the LED's?

I had my non-SLR camera take the picture just as my angel eyes dim out. It's an art to get it right but once you get it, your shots will come out great! The LED strip is more for Audi's because the line/strip is part of the lines of the car. The bottom of our headlights prefacelift and facelift are in no match to the body lines but I guess if you could install them just like OEM Audi, I can't see it looking horrible. The obstacle is fabricating such a modification.


I have headlight polishing needed too...LOL.
