Arc angel or led angel eye kit

Hello,

Was thinking about upgrading angel eyes but would like to know what is better...is it worth replacing OEM bulbs with Arc angel bulbs or replacing the whole unit with H8 Led marker kit (HIDS DIRECT)
Would like any feedback on which is the brightest !!

Thanks.

The LED markers will be a whiter colour and should be brighter but they will also be more expensive and still lack the brightness of a proper LED setup.

Look for some user posted images of the LED markers you are interested in as website images are always taken from favourable angles at low light levels.

in bright daytime you barley see them [hids direct and ssdd kits] they are still noticable like if u turn them off and back on u can tell it makes a difference. on a rainy day they are really bright and nearer dusk now it's summer time they are fine.

I am more than happy with my SSDD kit which don't throw any errors even with daytime running lights turned on.

Heres bunch of links to customers cars that have the Arc Angels. The Arc Angels are not brighter but do produce a whiter light...

I bought the HIDS Direct ones a few weeks back and I am very happy with, as said on a sunny day you can hardly see them but at dusk and on rainy days they are great.

At 62.50 delivered they are considerably cheaper than SSDD.
