    Hi y'all !

    Finally got my self a beemer last week, and couldnt help smiling to my self ever since

    Now I want to install angel eyes on ma littly baby.

    I removed the head light cover and measured the light, it is 140mm in diameter and has the top bit of the circle missing.

    All the LED rings on ebay are complete circles, and none are 140 mm ( the ones advertised as 140mm have an OUTER diameter of 140mm).

    I'd prefer CCFL over LED, but I simply cant find ones of that size. Am I missing out on something obvious here ?

    And in my excitable nature, I only measured one light ( the inner light ). Is the outer light diameter the same ?

    Cheers,

    SAMs right, the pre facelift are different sizes, but the larger ring gets partially hidden by the lower shrouding, if you want to see both rings fully you can fit E36 rings.

    I just fitted angel eyes to my e46 1999 coupe. Off ebay & no problems. They are not full circle the top is cut across with the wire ends & bracket attached. I used the glue gun as the sticky pads supplied wer,nt much good. Fitted aftermarket xenons at same time the whole set looks fantastic. finished putting M3 front bumper on yesterday & that looks superb too. Is there anywhere on here to post pictures of car. .
