Instead if I were in your position and really wanted the angel eye look I would source some LCI headlights and Osram Nightbreaker PLUS bulbs. As I understand it these are a straight swap and have the corona rings you seek.
Had a bulb go yesterday (Philips +30's that were about 2 1/2 years old). So just ordered these +100% http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PHILIPS-EX...#ht_1661wt_952

Came top of the Nov 11 Autoexpress test: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/product...bs_tested.html

i thought the review on Depo on here seems quite good. I do get your point about not being as good as OEM..but then the OEMs are not brilliant
