    Looking into getting some CCFL's for me 325ti E46 Compact

    May be a stupid question but, can you have both angel eyes and HID's? as i love the look angel eyes but ive heard they dont offer fantastic road illumination?

    These are a few links for some CCFL's that i have found on ebay... only a tenner in it but which do you reckon would be the better buy?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E46-COMPAC...3A1%7C294%3A50

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E46-COMPAC...3A1%7C294%3A50

    Or can anyone recommend a better supplier/brand?

    Also can anyone recommend a certain make/supplier for HID's?

    Oh and whilst we're on the topic of lighting...
    Can you get brighter fog light bulbs as well? because if i'm doing CCFL's and HID's i might as well do the rest of the front end and do the fog lights as well

    Cheers people

    if im right the angel eyes are only for the side lights and you can still have the hids.

    if you get them let know as would like to see how easy or hard they are to fit

    cheers

    LiLo - the first one were recomended to me by Diablo. From what was said in his PM's he sent me, he was pretty happy with them - I don't think you can go wrong for that much money. I'm going to get some at the end of the month.
