$35 eBay angel eyes review.

So... I didn't want to spend the money to buy a set of Lux's or OSS and was looking for a cheap solution.

I was browsing eBay like any other old day when I came upon these LED blue angel eye bulbs: http://www.ebay.com/itm/140776269621...84.m1497.l2649 from seller: 360infinite-usa.

Honestly for $35 I wasn't expecting much. And I definitley wasn't expecting much quality for my $35.00. Really, it was a spur of the moment buy and 5 minutes after I paid I regretted buying them all together.

The bulbs show up in 3 bussiness days and I thought I might as well try them on. I jacked up the car and got to work. It was a really easy install. All you have to do is take off the fender liners to gain access to the back of your headlights. (In the pix my bumper was off for a different reason entirely) Then you pop off the cover for your angel eyes bulb, unscrew 2 screws and the oem bulbs are out. The aftermarket bulbs are direct plug and play. Same 2 screws now go in to secure the bulb in place, pop on the cover and you're done.

I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS!


The first thing I noticed when I put on the lights was the intensity and brightness compared to the OEM lights. They are very blue and very bright. You can definitely see them in the daytime. My phone pix do not do the lights justice. The second thing I noticed was that they do not throw any error codes. (I was expecting this, as I had tried to install HID lights into my fogs recently and I got error codes.) I was kind of skeptical, but after a few hours of driving and still no codes I was pleased.


All in all, for $35 I am definitely impressed. My only worry is that I will be pulled over for them being blue, in which case I will replace them with white ones.

This is a good solution to those that want angel eyes, but cannot afford to buy the more expensive brand name ones.

Note: I am in no way affiliated with the seller and this review is based soley on my personal experience.

Those look good. Dont think youll get pulled over. Way too many people with worse things. Like orange lights as head lights, or those god damn ultra bright blue lights that blind everyone on the street.
Dont new BMW come with blue like angel eyes too? I see no issue with this.

Id buy a second set though. Just in case, and since they are cheap, might as well.

Not even 6k hid's? I know the 4300 is best for visibility but... Idk. I have always preferred 8k.
