If the car has xenons i.e. projector type light you will have the angels eyes.

If not yes you will have to replace the headlight unit for aftermarket ones or LCI headlights

Someone recently started a thread on fitting AE to existing headlights, I don't know how much he was charging but they were bright, multi LED rings, not the crappy yellow ones. If you fancy having yours converted it might be worth doing a search for the thread.

Angel Eyes

Yes you need to buy the angel eyes Lamp, but the LCI version with the bright white light will not fit into pre-LCI
You can buy the new Lux H8 V4 to match the LCI version.

Is that right? So if I buy some LCI halogens I can do a straight replacement of my pre lci halogens?

you have to buy the complete light unit for both side then buy the angle eye bulb
prop set you back 500-600
then I think (but not sure) they need coding to the car

no coding needed for halogen to halogen my friend

LCI Halogens go for around 250 the pair
