Wanted - After Market Projector Angel Eyes

Iv recently bought a 320d Msport 2006. This car as standard BMW headlights.

Iv put in Ballasts and 6K xeon bulbs, which work however dont give the projector look.

Im looking for a Pair of projector headlights with the angel rings. The best that i have seen is Depo lights, however the rings are amber and dont really light up all the circle, I was looking for LED rings.

Has anyone on here recently purchased lights, or can reconmend me a pair, or a MOD that i can do. I want them to look OEM as possible.

Thanks Guys

Depo P90 V2 have led angel eyes.

Have a look for the other threads reference xenons / HIDs though. You need more than just a pair of depos if you want to pass an mot.

If you have xenons then your car must have auto levelling and headlamp washers to pass an MOT.

Plus, as you've found out, the beam pattern putting xenon bulbs in a reflector bowl is shit. That said, I've heard some horror stories about Depo beam patterns too.

I searched a bit and cannot find a single dealer who supply Depo xenon headlights in UK. I guess the demand is very poor. We people like to stick to original headlights or at least original upgrades to Xenon or LCIs.
You can try USA, but they are around $650 and LHD.
There are some chinese stuff on ebay and they cost around 300-360 and again no surity.
Germany, about 240 pounds (turning signals non-leds, yellowish angel eye lights which cannot be changed) and they are also LHD.
Not an easy task, spent 40 minutes on searching most of the websites.
If you come across something good, feel free to share with us.

M Style have them. Or at least they can get them. I enquired a few months back and I think they were about 280 or so for the set. The v2s are the ones with led angel eyes and led indicators, meant look like facelift xenons. Sadly, some Americans have pointed it that the beam pattern on them is woeful.

Can't be much worse than standard halogens.

Take a butchers at these if they float your boat. Projector lenses and ccfl halos, which should be better than led.

Completely agree. HID's should not be installed into halogen reflector lenses. You'll just be pissing everyone off buddy.

Thanks again for the feedback. I'm going to call mstyle tomorrow and make an enquiry since iv ordered some dark line headlights from there this week. They have the standard depo headlights the rings have 4 bulbs in each ring. Does the job but still not the led look. They do have other lights again they look too street racer than oem. Will pursist with the hunt.

Yes I shod remove the standard headlights because the xeons have too big of a pattern and light up more than just the road.

Those headlights on eBay are a good however they do look more aftermarket than other examples I think.

Mstyle don't do these lights, they confirmed the depo v2 are only available LHD. I'm considering baking the depo's and replacing rings with brighter options.

I'm almost certain that genuine Depo's have a lever to switch them over between rhd/lhd fitment. Try searching as I think this has been covered before.

Hmm, not what they told me and I did specifically ask of they were RHD. I still have the email somewhere but maybe they don't do them anymore or something. Have a look at this post and it might suggest why. They're shit!

To be fair, I think the best way to go is to get hold of a set of LCI headlights and go from there.

As much as I want halo's and have been looking at depo etc, I'm not gonna take the risk when LCI lights are straight swap.

The LCI lights have an amber ring, I guess it's the safest option, but I really wanted the ice white rings. ( a bit of a show off)

Depo is a brand that produces aftermarket products

6 urj, which one did you buy from mstyle?
can you confirm from this link?
http://www.mstyle.co.uk/acatalog/BMW..._Packages.html

If you buy LCI, you can change the amber ring to ice white one. Additional 60.
LCI lights are high in demand, and I am also after a pair.

Do you have photo of your car with the black headlights you ordered?
