    i was just about to purchase a LED Angel eyes rings 8000k brightness, but the guy told me that they wont fit the bmw facelift model, so was a bit gutted.

    my budget is upto 60, an so far on ebay could only fit the ccfl angel kits such as the one listed below, which fits the facelift and is 7000k,
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-3-E46-2D-F...ht_1970wt_1133


    it would be very helpfull if you guys knew of other deals? of possible led angel kits for facelift and under £60.

    if not, how bad is that product in the link?

    for the eyes to fit the facelift they need to be the same size, both if the rings on the face lift are exactly indentical on the facelift, i think on the pre faclift you can put two diffrent size rings

    Correct Mine are bigger on the outside (dipped beam) and smaller on the inside (main beam)

    Also on the prefacelift the angel eyes aren't complete circles. The top is cut off & flat...

    nice, i think the angel eyes look a bit better on the pre facelift,

    the rings that go on the facelift, fit around the chrome circiles in the head lamp, one it fits around the other it fits on, and you glue them in place

    Ahmet, you should have gone for the same size rings. I bet you the outer ones are partially hidden by the plastic shroud

    No, both can be seen quite clearly because I put them on wrong! Also they are both different sizes, but still too small

    I failed so spectacularly that it actually worked!

    guys, after reading ur comments about different sizes, im a little bit more confused, and also confused about facelift and pre-facelift??? not sure of the difference.

    it would be very helpfull if someone could just post a link from ebay, of the correct angel rings and they are gd at same time, so i can straight away buy it lol

    I would be looking at how easy it would be to fit them first. You probably have sealed headlamps so it is more involved. Have a look at sam1832's DIY link in his sig.

    Diffrence between faclift and non facelift:
    facelift - rings are both the same size
    non-facelift - rings are diffrent sizes

    these should fit: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E46-2D-Fac...es_CarParts_SM

    weather they are any good or not i dont know

    if i didnt buy the umnitzas, this is what i was going to buy:
    http://www.maxautos.co.uk/product_p/e46facelift.htm

    they should fit too

    As neal said, as yours is a facelift your head lamps will most probably be sealed, mine were

    they wernt too difficult to get apart, guide in my sig
