    I'm new to the forum and you may or may not already know that my precious compact was recently smashed

    I need to replace the driver's headlight but thanks to my neighbours son crashing into my other healight with his bike and smashing it...i now need to replace them both

    Which brings me to the question about an angel headlight conversion.

    Which ones are best?
    Where's the best place to buy?
    Any tips or advice?

    If any of you could help me out, advise me and point me in the right direction i would be very grateful

    imho FK DEPO are the best money can buy
    take a look on ebay or google around for a good price.
    consider getting the projector style lights as it makes upgrading to a hid kit very easy
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    Do you have these particular headlights then?

    Don't suppose you could put up a few links to guide me in the right direction?

    I would go for this too-infact I have had ccfl's on mine for 2 years now and they look good day or night and is another subtle mod.However my kit seemed a lot easier to fit than what these guys have gone through-Mine fitted without having to bend them-they are very fragile as the glass is very thin and can break easily-I will try find the name of them I cant remember them at the moment

    I remember reading somewhere the compact is the only 3 series to use a different headlight while the others are a universal fit. cant really remember if its true, sorry.

    I believe the compact has the identical front up to the A frame-may be wrong
