The good news is that with so many people preparing to retrofit LCI F01 headlights the price of used housings will become exponentially cheaper in the next year or so. If I were you I would just keep on doing what you're doing and when you replace the headlights eventually just keep the incandescents (maybe run PIAA) or go LED. Aside from actually installing LCI headlights with the advanced LED lit halo's, you'll be hard pressed to match the look without consequence and/or sacrifice.
our LED angel eyes never turn yellow even after years of usage, and PIAA doesnt make angel eyes for F01/F02's.
