Halos

I bought the LUX H8 V3 led bulbs and they look great or you can send your headlights to LA and get the LS3 sytem installed which looks sick but expensive.

What kind of headlights do you have? The only lights that have CCFL Rings in them would be aftermarket lights. All the aftermarket lights would need propriety and there wouldnt be any plug-and-play solution for them

seeing that you have a 328xi i assume it has halogens for angel eyes. Ive currently been holding back on the angel eye upgrade myself as the daytime pics make them look horrible. All the vendors post dusk or night photos or set the camera to certain levels to make them look brighter than they are. Id love to see point and shoot pictures in DIRECT sunlight.

Looks like aftermarket headlights. Let's just say there is no easy way to change then. Most all led replacements are made the OEM headlights

Only way to change them is to take then lights apart and replace with LEDs. Which then you may as well put good projectors in as well. But all of that is not simple and requires a lot of work.
