Group buy on depos?

Seen a while back there was a group buy on a particular alloy wheel, i was just wondering was there ever a group buy on Depo Angel Eye Headlighs.

Most UK pre-lci E90s come with halogen headlights and like myself i'd imagine that most owners would like to upgrade to Angel Eyes.

Could anyone sort anything like this out?

I think the consensus was that depo headlights were shit. Look not bad but the beam pattern is worse than the halogen lights they replaced!

Best bet if you want angel eyes on a budget is to swap the lights out for LCI halogens.

Welcome back bud.
LCI Xenon headlights were damn expensive and to retrofit that, I needed FRM3 as well. So went for straight swap job which is LCI halogen headlights.

I guess you are forgetting that part of deal was, you were going to post photos of your car with new wheels on and then my turn.
