Headlight help!

Okay im looking to get new headlights, but im so confused about the difference between angel eyes and halo projector headlights? I know its a stupid question but i read on a different blog the angel eyes dont actually project any light? so are they just the rings? I dont know if they are the same thing just with a different name?
I'm a visual person so if anyone could post a picture of the difference between the two or something that would be great help! if not any input is appreicated!

Like I said. do the Oem retrofit + ORION V2 leds angels. Forget the halo ptoyector. Btw u should have xenon already. Just add the angels rings.

It really depends what package he have, there is a few just with halogen headlights. Oem way is the best way, but there is a bunch of them on internet don't go to cheap cause u will have water inside and any other problems like erros on your lights.

I know my friend went with DEPO on his m3. Auto level projectors with DS2 bulbs 6000k with angel eyes UHP - Ultra high-power L.E.D's never seen brighter than that. No cutting wires or anything just straight plug to plug.

Over a year now and so far no complains, washers are good no water inside under high pressure car wash. He paid close to a $1000 seems like nothing for good headlights where the oem are close to 2000.

6000k are the best of best.
