Angel Eyes Help
 
Hey guys I drive a 2005 bmw 330xi and I want to get angel eyes. I just dont want those rings where you just attach it to your current headlights, I want a whole brand new headlights with angel eyes. Any idea which ones to get? I need ones that are bright so I can see at night while driving. Thanks in Advance

Why? You can't see the rings unless you know they are there. Hope you have deep pockets the whole assembly witness bi xenons are $$$

There are no angel eyes on the market that will emit enough concentrated light to adequately illuminate the road ahead. That's still reserved for your headlights. Angel eyes are solely for aesthetic purposes, not practical.

With that being said, you're still better off getting ones that can just be retrofitted into your existing headlights. Umnitza sells the brightest ones, the Orion V4s. I have their V2s and its already very bright - the V4s are two times brighter with twice the amount of individual LEDs per ring.

the funny thing is that i bought a set of AE off of ebay for 70$, and believe me the umnitza does not come even close in brightness, i'm unable to shoot them for u guys with any cell phone cam :eeps:
my friend has a pro cam he said would do me a photo shoot session of my car, will post them once done :D

You couldn't be more wrong about this.
To date, 5 years and counting, we have produced the brightest angel eyes period.

The ones on eBay are the same ones we sell called the Orion Lite. They are bright for people with Camera phones in dark conditions. They are not bright during the day.

The Orion V2 are brighter than anything except the V4. None of them should be used as driving lights however.

You can do a comparison here, ours is on the right:

I got my headlights as a full unit from eBay. Think they set me back 200 or so. They don't give off the blue/white look for the rings but more of the OE yellow colour.... Not amazingly bright like the newer lights you get on the latest BMW but they still quite bright.

Only down side is that the rings consist of 5 led bulbs. These sometimes work themselves loose and fall out, this mean. Section of the ring is abit dull. Some point this week am planning on taking the headlights off the car and dropping a tiny blob of glue on the bulb holders and place them so they will not wriggle their way out anymore.

Other than that, am very please with them. I'll see if I have any pictures I can upload
