Exclamation Angel Eyes Help!

Does anybody know where I can get halogen angel eyes for my preface lift coupe? It has halogen lights and I don't want to wash them out with xenon angel eyes. Any help would be really appreciated.

You must be referring to the color temp. 3000 Kelvin should put you in the halogen color range while still using LEDs. Ask vendors if they sell LED AE @ 3000K

umnitza carries 4300K and Gold options for you that look more like halogen angel eyes.
6000k will not wash out it's brighter than stock halogen and will always be visible.

well i saw somewhere to make sure that the halos were halogen filament and thats what's been throwing me off. i want a color as close the low beams and fogs as possible, i like to ride around town with them on and i thought angel eyes would look good with that.

I don't mean i dont want the halos to be washed out, i dont want the headlights wash out by the much brighter 6000k halos. can you post pics of 4300k, amber, and gold ones in cars?

Ok, so this may be a stupid question, but which bulb is the yellow one that is on when you DON'T have the headlights on? Is that the Xenon one, or is it a Halogen light? I hate the color of it, and want to change, I'm probably going to buy the Predator Orion V2 6000K Angel Eyes kit, and want to also get rid of that yellow colored one. So, which one is that? THanks!

Those are the halogen or "amber" ones.

Probably your DRL high beam is what you're talking about?
