best headlight option for my 09 e90 335?

Im looking to upgrade my stock angel eyes on my 335 to something completely white with no amber and maybe a black housing. where could i find this? Also, what do you guys know about the rings on http://www.luceprodukt.com/? are they worth the money?

appreciate the feedback

If you want to keep the car as OEM as possible, keeping the cut in the outer ring, go with OSS or LS3. I have OSS, no complaints at all. These solutions replace the rings completely, so if you are looking for a cheaper PnP solution, I reccomend LUX H8 V3

This! The full outer ring does not look right

They look right to me. I honestly think they look so much better than the cutouts. Cutouts the light looks broken especially the one thats supposedly the full circle still has a cut at the top...Weird as OEM doesnt have that little cut out/missing led on the inside ring.

I bought mtec v3 angel eyes. They look great for the money and with the 50 dollars you'll save vs lux you can upgrade the h3 cornering bulbs and the fog lamps. So you would basically have all "white" front end lights for 250 bucks. Check out e92 lighting. OSS is king but for 600 I would rather buy a tune. Plus the lci headlights look great as is.

You have a 2009, so you have to be looking for "LCI E90" AE's. MTEC V3 won't work on your car. H8 is your bulb type

If you want to black out the turn signals you have no choice but to open up the headlights and choose one of the leading brands of direct LED replacement of the rings.

I have a 09' 335 and just bought the Mtec H8's and can't figure out how to install them. The circular opening on the back of the headlight is in a tough spot to get your hand let alone the bulb in. Anybody else do this install, and if so, do you have to remove anything? Mtec tells me nothing needs to be removed. So far, I don't see how that's possible.
