You don't want to do it. Waste of money, trust me.

Alpine is shit. Their set will turn your rings yellow and may also melt the inside of the housing. Alpine are always shitty with their customer service. Stay away from them and their POS HID AE. I had them before and it was the worse mistake I have ever done.

I know what OSS rings are and I'm not spending that much on angel eyes. The mtech and lux HID kits are fine.

Go to vendor reviews, look for my angels eye are starting to turn yellow. They have been known to yellow the rings. A lot of people threw their sets out and not even bother writing about their shitty ass products. Everyone say they love them in the beginning, you will feel the same way.

Ive had MTech, GP Thunder, Alpine, Camaross505's kit, & Lux....

I shoulda just bought the LUX first and saved my money and the headaches from the alpine & camaross505's kits.....

OSS looks great but way too much just for angel eyes...

Actually, everything i said it false, they are the very best kit you can get. Go HID angel eyes, dealers say they are the greatest too and it won't void your warranty when it melts your housing and wires. They also offer the best customer service on this forum. Go for it.

I tried telling you but i guess you don't do a search about and hence why you are hearing from me first. Read that link, it'll help you decide.

To be honest.. It has no effect on what I want. HOWEVER... After further review.. I'm going to get some 20watt Cree LED angel eyes since they are best bang for the buck.

I've read alot about angel eye problems.. I mean.. I don't know if it is a coincidence or not, but all the yellowing/code throwing seems to be happening on 2007 335i's. Just wondering what year cars do you guys have? the people with problems.

I have not encounter a problem at all, but I check on them biweekly to keep an eye out for any problems.
