    Hi All

    Just wanted your views as to whether this was worth paying..
    I want to get some some angel eyes on my 318i Sport (2003 facelift).

    I am getting a price for £110 fitted. Is this too much?
    I have seen a guide for fitting here (on another model) and wondered whether this was easy to do (for a novice) or whether it was worth paying to get done..
    Guy said it wouldn't take longer than 1.5hrs to do..

    Thanks

    How much you paying for the CCFL's?
    TBH they're pretty easy to install.There's a few guides on here but then again if you can afford to pay £110 and they will be sure to work then why not

    Agree with StK to a point. If you have clip off lenses, then I would say 20 mins per side as the CCFLs clip on nowadays

    isn't the facelight light set up harder to do? oven job to soften glue to take apart!
    is there a link to these angel eyes?

    Coupe models as standard, but some face lift saloons have clip on . Hopefully, OP will verify.
