Chance on fire EBAY angelyes

Hello everyone! Just installed Angelyes CCFL on my toy, so heard many times they are fired. I put ballast inside of healights. just power supply +12v come from relay box (sow on youtube installations). Question is what part go on fire and why? How I understanding is fuse post to be on that supply wire (red white with ellow rings). Maybe ballast go on fire? That stay inside headlights box? So do I need to keep fireinsteagleshir close by?

I love how EBAY was in all caps. Why would you risk a $100 difference in return for a possible bon fire, unless you like s'mores.

As far as I know is the shady wiring that shorts out which can easily cause a fire. You should rewire them completely.

Why in the world would you even CHANCE putting something in your car that can cause a fire especially when there's a version that does not??? Makes no sense to me.

The chance of fire is not limited to eBay CCFL angel eyes. Get a set of LED angel eyes, or just leave the damn things off.
As far as the OP, asking if you should keep a fire extinguisher and wanting to know exactly what part catches fire are two warning signs to take that stupid cheap **** off of your car. The advice you are asking for is idiotic from the beginning. Just remove them. You are driving a 325. Adding some lights is not going to make it any cooler, but it may make it burn up unnecessarily. They catch on fire because the ballast is cheap and produces too much heat, and they are wired in by monkeys who should leave their hood shut.

I didn't think about that.



OP, rings around your lights are not worth the potential hazard of destroying your car. They're pretty well played out anyway. If you want your lights to look better look at replacing your headlight covers. It makes the car look a lot younger and actually benefits you by making it easier to see.

But if you have to get angel eyes, get LED ones and get them from a sponsor.
