To angel eye upgrade or not
 
I keep going back and forth on whether to upgrade my angel eyes for the yellowish halogen to more of a whitish color, I just missed the factory cutoff ( March 2011 ) for the AE LED, I was initially looking at the LUX brand upgrade until I saw this other post doing a comparison , my question remains, when you see a newer 5 series, X3, etc ,that has the factory LED rings, does this make you think about doing an upgrade or could you care less about it.

I don't get hung-up on the color. If it was no halo vs. halo, that would mean something. Intensity and color don't catch my eye as much. I won't spend the money on my 2010 for this sort of upgrade...

I personally love the new halo's. Just traded in my 2009 for a 2012 last week and have had numerous positive comments on the new lights.

The best looking LED's are the BMW halos. The ones we see on Audi, Porsche and MB are too much bling. Bimmer halos are simple but elegant.
