Well, the angel eyes I got from F1Autohaus, but they got the angel eyes straight from Umnitza, the sole provider. So yeah, I am representing them. They better give me discounts since I whore my car a lot and recommend them all the time.

For plastic I assume, right? Do I have to prime or anything else or just spray on?

Nope, just clean with a strong adhesive remover or something similar. I painted the fender flairs on my Jeep with this stuff and they still look brand new... it is outside 24/7. It's great paint!

Damn, thanks bro! All I need to do is either buy new clear corners with black trim or find someone to trade with. My lights will look like B33MER's now

that's basically what the paint I used, however I was too lazy to tape off ALL the silver plastic parts around the headlights I just did the removable main piece. You can hardly tell.

It was kinda goof that they titanium'ed up the 2001/2002 330's like that. Goes with the chrome window trim I guess.......ugh
