My first BMW

Hello bimmer fans.
I'm glad to introduce my first BMW. It's 325xi 2003 with 176k miles.
I have installed clear corner lens and detailed my headlights.
In the future I want to install blue CCFL angel eyes and clear side markers...

Welcome- What'd you do to your headlights to clear them up?

I'd reccommend deciding against CCFL angel eyes. They have been known to fail and set fire to our cars. Get some nice LED ones from Umnitza. They have a nice 6000k color temperature If you're on a bit of a budget the Orion Lites are a great bang for your buck product

I used several types of sand paper. It was 600, 1500 and 2000 grid. Then I used a drill with a detailing pad and the powder.

I want to install the blue one lights. Do they have this type of color?

This is what the Orions look like:



If you want completely blue, they make multi-colored angel eyes with blue included as one of the colors, but they're a lot more expensive.

Umnitza does offer a "neon blue" option for the Orion v2's but I haven't seen it much and its an extra $100. My advice would be to go with 6000k, which is a blueish/white color.

Yup. The 6000k is a good mix of white with a blueish hue. Not overpowering at all. Not advertising for khoalty but their LED angel eyes have been great for me. Wish I could say the same about their LED tails... Damn you depo!

Depo lights are bad. I've bought the corner lens with the side markers and the side doesn't fit at all and the corner are misting during the daily usage.
Next time will buy OEM euro style clear side markers.

For the LED tailights id definitely get the Eagle eyes for about $30 more if I could do it again. Well you live and learn and who am I kidding, I'm going to end up buying them anyways.
