    the rings are called angel eyes,
    there are two types:
    led
    and ccfl

    they come as four rings and you put them inside your exsiting headlight assembly, or you can buy a whole new headlight with angel eyes in them already but i dont think they look as good.

    i have LED angel eyes from here: http://www.ca-automotive.co.uk/varia...kPTI0NDk=.html

    and i have some pics of them in my diy: http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...62/#post418897

    my LEDs are very bright and by the looks of your pictures there are the umnitza LEDs like i have, the ones you see on ebay a ccfl, they are alot cheaper than the LEDs,

    this is why i went for the LEDs, they are much brighter and can be seen in the bright sunlight, they look amazing at night, they last forever, and dont suffer from cold start issues like the ccfls

    hope this helps

    pretty pleased with them as they are cheap, quite enjoyed putting them in but you need to take your time, and have the correct tools to save yourself a nightmare.
