Thanks to mythek! for Saving this DIY made it a breeze to re-upload.

I will edit some things soon.


if you know any other angel eyes that you want to install you could use this DIY with your own angel eyes form a vendor of your choice Like Umitza Angels ONLY...

Oh please... You do realize there's a ton of people who don't live anywhere near you who could have used your DIY right? Either way, for someone who wants to pay a shop/person to do the angel eyes for them, it won't matter if there is a DIY up or not. People who want to pay for it will pay for it. People who want to do it themselves are going to do it themselves, regardless of if you took your DIY down or not. There are other DIYs around, although yours was pretty good. You can pretend like you need to take it down from a business standpoint, but really it won't make you much if any money in the long run.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I am going replace the lense cover on the left. Bought a cheap broken tabed holgen headlight, but the lense was perfect new condition.

At this time, I would love to upgrade the AEs.
But not sure where to buy replacement AEs.
Or what to use....

I am in Canada, shipping here is a real pain and expense from to USA.

Can you please guide me on what I need material wise on getting new AEs.
I am not into doing it for others in any manner.

What do you replace the AEs with?

That is what I want to know.

This was a really bad move. Keeping the DIY up would've gained you some publicity and engendered goodwill while allowing people who aren't in your area to do this themselves. While leaving the DIY up might have caused some local people who might've otherwise given you money to do it themselves, a lot of people might've seen the DIY and decided to just go to you to get it done. Having DIY instructions online to do oil changes certainly never hurt dealers business, with countless people still go to dealers/indys to get oil changes. The same would hold doubly true for headlight mods.

This move was just in such poor taste, particularly after this community helped you refine your design (LuceProdukt). Should've just left it up.

This was a really bad move. Keeping the DIY up would've gained you some publicity and engendered goodwill while allowing people who aren't in your area to do this themselves. While leaving the DIY up might have caused some local people who might've otherwise become your paying customers to do it themselves, a lot of people might've seen the DIY and decided to just go to you to get it done. There's all kinds of instructions online for doing oil changes, but people still frequently like to just get it done by the dealer/someone else. The same would hold doubly true for headlight mods.

This move was just in such poor taste, particularly after this community helped you refine your design (LuceProdukt).
Thanks for the criticism. I'm putting the DIY back up when I have time to re upload all images.
Relax.

Sammy.

Sweet. All I care about is the actual wiring portion. I don't need the canbus error cancelers anymore either way, I just had my coder code that out already.

No worries, all that will be up, it might be a video diy and a refined simpler written part of the DIY.

Nice, I think this is a good move. I'm extremely unlikely to ever do this DIY myself, but if I were in the area I'd certainly consider going to you to get this done.

Can someone give me a link or a product to use to make or buy new AEs?

If I get this done, I will donate for sure.

Sorry if this was already answered but can someone confirm the inner and outer angel size required for the e92. I tried looking all over and could not get a definitive answer. Thanks Sammy for reconsidering to report the DIY.

If it looks like it will take a lot more than I'm comfortable with, I'll have to send my headlights to you
