I've never been fan of the E60. Looks funny to me. F10 is alot nicer in my opinion (Y)

However, I'm no 5 series guy at all xD

Some people call it halo rings too.

Angel eyes = demon eyes = halo rings.

Yeah it kinda sucks... It's because red and blue are reserved for emergency vehicles only, maybe even green.

I personally have the 6000K look angel eyes. Some others here have the 4300K lights i think or less to make it look like halogen colored, like the early E90 and E60 angel eyes.

Now all the OEM lights are bright LED 6000K like the E92, the F10, and maybe even the F01 and F07. The new 6 series also has 6000K LED.

Ugh. I swear, governments everywhere need to grow a pair.

I'm buying these beasts! http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BMW-E46-H...#ht_3533wt_842

I spoke to E46 Coupé (E46F member) He bought these bad boys from the same seller. Apparently Euro Division are actually really high quality. Wouldn't mind taking the lunge!

The reason is pretty obvious dude, putting red and blue lights on your car is like putting a fake police uniform on your body, you cant do it, and for a good reason. There are a fair amount of issues with people impersonating police officers to pull people over and do illegal things to them like physically and sexually assaulting them. I personally think its not unfair these colors are off limits

It's understandable but I mean, you see hondas with blue or red angel eyes or LEDs all over these streets? o.O Not to mention those bloody shitbox commodores.

But yeah, I guess it makes sense.

The daytime running lights are integrated in the corona rings of the headlights and are brighter than the parking lights. Corona rings are a classic BMW design feature and the light they provide in the daytime lends the 1 Series an unmistakable presence as well as contributing to increased safety. Optional bi-xenon headlights required
