Arrow Angel eye conversion

Hey, first time poster here.

I got an e90 330xd 2007 pre-lci with HID Xenons retrofitted (just the bulbs), and while I really like the HIDs I just can't get my mind from the angel eyes. And since christmas is closing I thought I would buy myself an early christmas present
I know I'm not getting away anywhere cheap with this project, but that's not a problem. I have searched a couple of different options which headlights I should stick with:

Are the depos any good? If I remember correct I've read that they received quite a lot of criticism

http://ossdesigns.net/services.html

Second option would be "OSSdesigns V2.0 Angel Retrofit". This one isn't so costly and they look really cool.

So I'm looking for advices and suggestions from you guys. Thank you in advance!

OSS. The way I look at it is why do the one thing that stands out the most cheap or cost efficient. Throw down the big bucks for the awesome setup.

Alright thanks for the reply, and I agree with you 100%. It's not even my intention to be a cheap-ass with this since I know if I buy crap I will regret it. So I guess OSS is the way to go!

I'm trying to do the same thing. I'm thinking about sending them to one eighty or OSS. I already ordered the depos and they should be here today.

Nevemind. I just bought a set of lci xenons

My Depos should be here later today if anyone is interested in them. Otherwise I am going to return them.

I got these ones.

I did almost buy these but I prefered the lci's. Someone should get these its a good deal.

I got these Depo's in yesterday to do the retrofit on, but now I need to send them back or sell them. I took a look at them and tested one out. The housings are actually good quality, but the angel eyes are dim and yellow. The cutoff is better on the stock halogen's.

As you can see I changed my mind quite a few times on what to get. I just happened to find a good (nearly) complete set of lci xenons at the last minute.

OSS is super super bright ( not plug and play) , but for plug and play, DTEC's are the brightest out there.
