New Angel Eyes : 180 L.E.D Rings Review

Hello everyone, this is my review on the newest and best L.E.D rings in the market, the 180 L.E.D Rings!

First off I would like to thank Alex@180 for his excellent customer service. His response was immediate( literally! ) I called to order and received the package within a week by USPS priority, which is nice to know that it will arrive quickly and safely. The packaging is exactly what you'd expect for anything this fragile. Styrofoam peanuts were used to cushion the spacing between the USPS box and the box carrying the L.E.Ds. Each ring is individually packaged for further protection and each package is labeled either "inner ring" or "outer ring" to prevent confusion. If you ever buy these rings, you will know that the guys at 180 do not cheap out and carefully plan what the customer will need for installation. Everything you need for installing these rings are inside the box, from wire taps to epoxy, EVERYTHING. So don't worry about figuring out what is needed. If you do get confused while installing, read up on the instruction manual. It's like a e92 L.E.D ring installation book for dummies. It's so dumb proof, it even has a vocabulary list! On almost every page, there is one or two pictures along with detailed instructions. So it's kind of hard to not know what to do next. Here's some pictures to show you what I was talking about.



And of course pictures of the rings at night and in sunlight.









The quality of these rings are phenomenal. As you can see from the half shade/ half sunlight picture, sunlight does not skew the brightness at all. And for those of you wondering what the true color of these rings are, they are pure white. I have to say though, this installation is not easy since you have to remove the bumper and open the headlights. If you don't feel comfortable doing all of this yourself, just contact the dudes at 180 for an in house installation and I'm sure they'll take real good care of you and your car. Happy modding!

I totally agree with you. I already wrote PM to him and the other guy at this custom shop.... no reply yet.

They just wanna see the outcome of this thread I guess. I mean if they addressed this openly I would find it more wiser...

MAC had them up for 300. But I didn't buy it from them since they weren't really responsive at all.

Not really comparable since these are individual leds forming a ring and lux is just the h8 bulb.

I'm not a vendor. I am a random forum member. I am in Socal while 180 is in New York City. And no one carry these rings on the forums, so how can I be a vendor? As for the black out and turn signals, I painted the parts and made the WHOLE turn signal housing at my apartment. Since when did having blacked out headlights and custom turn signals make you a vendor pretending to be someone else?

These angel eyes are after market from Oneighty.

Did you just say that you sent me a message because I haven't received one from you. In fact, it would be wiser for you to read the post that you are agreeing with and realize that he is making random assumptions based on his logic, which obviously needs help.

Nope, I had them shipped from NYC.
