Halogen to Projector headlights...

I have had stock halogen headlamps on my 2008 328i sedan, and upgraded to HID's but unfortunately one of them blew out-

so i was looking to buy Projector Headlights with angle eyes (preferably white halos)

is there any specific brand or type of headlight i should look into?

what do you guys recommend?

I found the ones on umnitza and I like them. Couple of questions:
1.When they're talking about upgrading the wattage from 35 ->50/55, are those the FX-R with adapters and what does this "FX-R" upgraded projector entail? Is this the HID "xenon" kit they are talking about?
2.The "bulbs" we can include, are those the halogen hi-beams?
3.If I opt out of the LED amber signals, will they just include traditional white LED's?

I've sent this same message to Umitza too guys/gals. Thanks

If you get the headlights through Umnitza, DO NOT get the FX-R projector retrofit through them. Their retrofitter does an absolutely horrific job installing the "upgraded" projectors (misaligned, poorly sealed, other issues), and I also found out that he's been using bottom-barrel knock-off and reject FX-R's.

If you want to retrofit FX-R projectors into the DEPO headlights for full Bi-xenon functionality and better light output either A) order them through TheRetrofitSource.com and install them yourself or B) have one of The RetrofitSource.com's preferred installers do the retrofit for you (see their site for a list)

Personally, I wouldn't even get the headlights through Umnitza, their customer service is terrible, and they deceived several people I referenced to them for FX-R retrofits...
