SPYDER Headlights????

I'm about to replace my passenger side headlight assembly and I'll probably go with OEM, but since it's a 06' 325 with Halogen lights there's a lot of room for improvement. I know I won't go with DEPO from everything I've read on the forum. Has anyone reviewed SPYDER?

I'm having to replace the headlight assembly because every 8 - 10 months the turn signal socket was burning out and I would replace it. After the last time I replaced it, the turn signal is still not working. I can't see inside the housing well enough to see if there was just a bad contact causing it to short.
Any suggestions on the lights to go with or what may have caused the turn signal socket to keep burning out???

if you care about the angel eyes...

the angel eyes are CCFL, you wont be available to change it.

they are NOT bright at all, only at night with everything dark

What about this one?

I really would like to have AEs and the brighter the better, but I don't have them now so I could do without. I appreciate the info. So instead of CCFL what should I be looking for and do you know anything about the quality and fit of the SPYDER lights? THANKS

My experience with these have been they have a bad cut off and a hit or miss in adjusting. Not worth your time, go oem or look in the classifieds here.

that wouldn't even be an upgrade from your halogen lights. crappy cut off and crappy angel lights.

you need to go oem, if you cannot right now, save up or else just buy a car with oem headlights)

no point of wasting time on these aftermarket ones (ie spyder, depo or umnitza)

I agree 100% you are better off with the halogens you have. Anything out there that is not OEM is junk.
