This is what they will do

Daylight - Inner rings bright, outer rings barely visible
Dusk - Inner rings very bright, outer rings low light
Nightime - Inner rings blindingly bright, outer rings medium brightness

Running the DRL is brighter, if you run dipped beams the LED angels eyes DO dim.

Full beams\Xenons on look the best with all lights and angel eyes looking the brightest, any other light position shows a very noticeable difference in luminosity between the inner and outer rings but this will be the case on any LED upgrade, you can't get the LCI look on a PRE-LCI car by just changing the bulbs but this is due to the cheap PRE-LCI lighting system that BMW chose to use rather than a limitation of the LED's.

Does anyone know of a way to get the full OSS LED light replacement here in the UK as that is the best option tbh?
You can buy the rings from ca international -

Looking at the OSS pictures they look like the Orion V2 rings.

I've been looking at doing the conversion but wanted a headlight to practice on. Putting a 200 + headlight in my oven is abit daunting!
