    Evening All,

    Have put this thread in the 'general section' as its open to more than just the E46 model, hope this is OK

    Right, Ive got a few quid in my paypal account, so I figure I might as well buy something off ebay Have been looking and getting angel eyes for bloody ages now. They just keep losing there place on the list

    Have a look at THESE

    For £35 all in they dont look to bad. What does everybody reckon? Is 7000k the ones to go for?

    Thanks in advance

    Its not too difficult, IIRC the front lens of the headlamp is only clipped on so access is easy

    They look OK, just bear in mind that ideally you'll want to upgrade your dipped headlamp bulb to a similar colour.
    If 7000k has a blueish tinge then Philips Blue vision bulbs should be a fair match?

    Cheers for the advice matey

    Would you say there a better ones out there? May be worth paying more. I've just seen these ones on ebay, they sell loads of them so I thought that they might be good enough for the job. But I do want it to look spot on

    As requested

    I got mine for under £30 on eBay and had them over a year now, if you buy from a respected seller who's selling large numbers of them then that's the way to go. It's also worth reading the sellers feedback to see what previous buyers have said about the angel eyes - that's the way I went about it

    Seb, you want to fit either 5000K or 6000K. Anything above and your are going into illegal territory (heard of a few blue ones being stopped). Very reputable company...LINK

    Cheers Joe and Neal...

    I dont want that Neal...I have to try and dodge them already with having the german plates on

    Is 5000k the way to go then? Still look the biz (I want them white and not blue) and legal

    That site looks decent, one quicky question Non-Projector/Projector

    Mine are 5000k and are very white, they near enough match my 6000k xenons, but unlike my xenons they have no tinge of blue whatsoever.

    5000k is the way to go
