    im abit confused by these really, i know what angels are and i know what HIDs are but is it neccesary to fit them both at the same time or would it look funny with "white" angels and standard "yellow" halogen bulbs? or is this not the case at all?

    also when you buy a kit of the angels do you get 2 rings or 4? and then i assume you fit the HID bulb in the centre of the rings?

    i really havent got a clue on these lol. anyhelp would be apprechiated

    You don't have to buy both at the same time,I had angels for nearly 2 years before I added HID xenons.
    You get a set of four rings in a kit,You connect the angels to the side lights and some people remove the sidelight bulb-I however got a white LED bulb to go there as it suited the rings better.
    The HID xenon's replaced the dip beams and are far superior than standard bulbs.
    If you going to get kits the read up on the seller reputation before purchasing

    If you need more assistance then please ask.
    There are some very good DIY installation guides in the how-to section
