Another Angel Eyes question....

Ok, so I have a 99' 323i, does not have angel eye headlights, what are my options? Do I need to get a whole new headlight or can I just get those angel eyes inserts I see on ebay? If you use the inserts you have to pull the lenses of the headlights I take it.

I paid to have mine done. People on this form talked sht about me doing that. But i sat there and watched them do it i was fairly easy i just didn't want to fuk it up. I would order mine from a sponsor on this site. Got mine from ddm (80+LED). But they all got them just look for the cheapest price for the style u want. I would stay away from e bay. I always phone order just to be sure they know my model and that there the ones i want. I was going to get a whole new headlight but i have the stock HID's and any of those would have actually been a down grade. And your prefacelift so you dont have to bake the headlights there is a ton ot DIY guides

Check the review link in my signature. The review was for F1AutoHaus kit but the ones Khoalty sells are from the same manufacturer.

If we get anymore angel eye questions they may have to create a forum dedicated exclusively to lighting.

what ever you do .. DO NOT get the ebay angel eyes.. first hand experience here .. they are absolute SH!t. you truly get what you pay for. My advice is to definetly pony up the extra $100ish and get some that look great and will last a long time. I just put Orions on my e46 .. second best day of my life.

Angel eyes can be installed into your existing lights, or you can put angel eyes into new headlights with projectors.

We recommend the Orion V2 for this reason (and a few others we'll be posting tomorrow)

Couple of options for you. You can either purchase a full headlight replacement such as the Projector46 which replaces the entire headlight with projector based xenons and built in angel eyes. Or, if you just want the angel eye look, you can do the WeissLicht LED Angel Eyes which will install in your existing housings.

It depends on what you want out of the upgrade. If you are satisfied with your current light output, then you can just do the rings. If you prefer to upgrade the functionality and looks of the headlights, then the P46s will be the way to go.

So from now on its DIY unless its anythini can't DMS. lol And i ain't rolling in it like some of you high class bimmer owners. I was looking yesterday at how much some of you guys paid for your cars and i almost **** my pants. Most are like 25 to 45 thousand.
