Angel eyes!

Hey all,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this topic but here goes. I found these Angel eyes on ebay and i dont know if they'll fit my car. It's pretty cheap and has free shipping so I'm thinking why not. My car is a Pre-Lci 08 with factory angel eyes thanks!

I say............ NO.
Cheap products mean cheap quality - you get what you pay for.
If you want nice angel eyes go here, and contact one of the vendors.
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=335303

If you've been on the forums for a while you'll see a lot of comparisons and a lot of feedback. Personally, I'd say go with Lux, OSS, or something along those lines. Do some research and check this out when you're ready.
http://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=173
After checking that link out contact one of the vendors. If you like OSS Contact LUIS@OSS Through his email and tell him Sean (With the 2012 e92 335i from michigan) sent you. He'll hook you up with top notch quality. Guaranteed.

All in all, Don't buy that Ebay shit. Excuse my language.

If you're looking for something not too pricey and good quality you can go for the M-tech V.3 http://www.sonictuning.com/bmw/e90/m...7000k-v-3.html

I really don't know which is which. I just know that i paid around 800 at the dealer when i bought the car for these. They look like these and when i turn the steering wheel the lights follow. Again I dont know anything about lights.

If your going on ebay you mine as well hit a popular lighting website that we've referred people to for years.

www.highperformancebulbs.com and click on BMW lighting.

They sell some stuff that others sell at a fraction of the cost, and some stuff that other guys dont have so its a win win.

Those are just generic 6W LED units with knock off SSC P4s. I had the same ones in my car for about a year until one blew out.

For $40, it's worth it, IMO. LUX is a bit brighter but they both are barely visible during the day. If you want daytime visibility, go OSS, LS3, Umnitza, or custom.

PM me if you're interested in CF amber overlays. Not stick on vinyl, real CF overlays that I open up the headlights to install.

I would say for your Pre-LCI Xenon headlights, the LED angel eye rankings are as follows:

1. OSS
2. LUX
3. Weisslicht

Weisslicht is by far the cheapest, but it's not as bright during the day:

Right now I have Umnitza Orion V2 angel eyes (supposedly produced by OSS), and all I can say is they're the brightest AEs I have ever seen, even brighter than the OEM LED halos.
