alpine mss hid angel kit and black sprayed grills using plasti dip, on e90 lci. PICS

hi there peeps hope your all well. parcel force brought me my alpine mss hid angel kit today. it was really easy to fit. bit messy with the wires at min, i just need to hide them other then that the kit is awesome.

The rings are bright as the ones on the e92 lci, f10 etc or even brighter then them cars. the bulbs i have are 6000k or 7000k so they are white.
i am really happy with the kit and worth the money. better then the led bulbs i have seen.

the bulbs are really bright. if any of you guys are down in birmingham and want to have a look let me know

the pictures dont do it justice to be fair. i will take some more pictures when it gets dark.

on the weekend i got my plasti dip in the post and painted my grills matt black check out the pictures.

what do you guys think?

tomorrow am getting my performance diffuser carbon wraped and i have ordered my rear headlight tint.

thanks for looking

look bright indeed! where do you mount the balasts? if outside the headlight, how do you run the wires through the plastic cover?

wow they are bright. You almost want to restrict the brightness to the inner ring now to get more even look. I think I will stick to either LED or GP Thunder

The lights are bright as the ones on the new bmws and its not too bright that you don't need your low beams.

I was parked next to a e92 lci 2012 Model and my lights are only a little brighter and the colour looks the same.

The pictures don't do it justice and it don't come out right on the 4s camera

Yep H8. Sadly he doesn't do anything for the halogen headlights as I asked him. But am sure there must be away like using hids, but you would have to make your own brackets etc

Cheers pal

Plasti dip is awesome people spray full cars with that stuff but not with a can. And if I get bored of the black I can just peel it off it's that easy and doesn't cause any damaged to the other layer of paint or in my case the chrome.

eBay mate, plasti dip have there own eBay shop.

Only thing you have to do is clean the area your going to spray mate and you have to apply a few coats. Check some videos out on YouTube it's some good stuff.

Here's the link on eBay
