96 328i - Eyes, Intake, Clear? What else?

Hey guys I have been trolling around for a little while, but not very active. I had a 97 328i which unfortunately lost it's life (thankfully not mine too) to a rather rude tractor trailer, and now have a 96 328i that I am enjoying.



It is time to start upgrading, plans in the works are new fogs, clear tails, corners, and markers and angel eyes. I am also a firefighter so there will be an assortment of blinky lights to accompany all the pretty things.

My first question is what is my best bet to upgrade my headlights with angel eyes? I have new OEM headlights that were installed before I bought the car and I don't much want to spend a lot to totally replace them (they are plenty bright), but want to add the look of angel eyes. What is my best bet here?

Also I am having a problem where my radio will shutoff intermittently, I know the stock radios are crap and it should be replaced soon, but I was wondering if anyone knew of this issue and a easy fix for it. Better to check now and save the hassle.

So other than that I am going to hold off on too too much work to it because I still have to dig myslef out of the finacial hole totalling my car created. Any help suggestions and thoughts are appreciated.

Keep the lights and get a kit to fit. I have Bosch headlights and I put in angel eyes. Not too hard to do and I like how it looks. Here are some old shots still with orange OEM indicator globes. Have since put in Philips Silver Vision globes.

What kit did you buy and where did you get it?

I believe you cannot install angel eyes in the US spec plastic headlights. You need Euro spec ones.

You can go with our Predator Chromium kit for your stock headlights. These will retrofit right into your existing housing and wire up with your stock wiring.

You can also compliment them with our E36 clears all around.

Those are the most expensive, I was looking for something that isn't going to cost me a million dollars.
