Arrow ►Installation of GP Thunder 8500k Angel Eyes◄

Review
If you ask me i would probably say these are the best-cheap-high quality-awesome H8 lights
for your angel eyes. Very cheap (28$ shipped to Greece from e92-lighting).
These lights produce a clear LED like light which makes your BMW look even
better! I will post many pictures of the installation and how they look in person.
A big thanks to e92-lighting for the cheap price and for supplying me the bulbs. ♥ you
For those who wanna know i use my Canon SX20 IS

Package
So today after 1 week of anxious waiting i got the package with the bulbs inside
The shipping was really really quick I have to say.









Installation
Once i got to the car i knew what i was messing with because i have seen
many videos and stuff. Since i dont have cornering lights it was easier. For
those who dont know how to do it there is a good DIY here : www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_c8iIII31g












Result
I think that the drivers side bulb is bluer than the other We will see..
Here are some daylight pictures I will post some night pictures later









NIGHT PICTURES









50% power

I can't wait to get them installed, though I have an e90 so install is a little bit more difficult than yours...

Thye look good with the headlights off, but once you turn them on, they return back to the OEM color due to power distribution. I did the same thing at first, and recently upgraded to the Camaross 6k. They look good though, and nice write up.

Thats interesting, just noticed where you are from. I will be taking a trip there pretty soon, I am currently in Kosovo, so it is only a few hours away.

So when driving in the day, can you have it where the headlights are off but the angel eyes are on? I guess I am now questioning when I'll actually have these running and if they're worthwhile.
Thanks!

Yes, you can program the angle eyes to be day time running lights. Easier with iDrive, but I think it can be done through the stalk as well if you don't.

Ok I guess I just need to check. I have a 6 speed so does the car just need to be on or with the ebrake handle down?
Thanks.

Looks like the angel eyes aren't on even with DRL enabled. Is there a way to change this?

These has to be wired with HID boxes or just a bulb replacement ? Sorry I'm a big noob when it comes to lights, and electronics in general
