Angel Eyes in zenon blue (matching the headlights)...

As you probably know, the angel eyes are in a yellowish, white color. A friend of mine has had his changed to a zenon color by adding a kit. It looks really nice, modern and it fits the car. Have you guys seen these on the new 7?

I found some before and after pics and it was pretty compelling. I'm not one to jack with a stoc 100k car, but it really looked good. Hang on...

Here it is. No yellow, but zenon blue. Obviously the light on the left in the pic is the upgrade.

I had the blue angel eyes on my E65 (which i own at that time) for about a week and took them off (even though it took me all day to install it) because it just didn't look right IMHO but i'm definitely not doing anything to my lease F02.

Those are seriously blue. In Texas, they'd pull you over for those and issue you a ticket. Good to know.

Virginia is the same. Maybe that's why it just didn't feel right and i took them off.

Yeah, they have them in the same zenon color of the headlight. The ones on your old ride were downright blue! Flash those and people will think you're a cop in Texas.

Interesting. They are actually a bunch of LED's lined up. On the stock, I think you can also replace just the bulb that illuminates the ring.

I'm a little surprised. I emailed two site sponsors and NEITHER responded at all. Does anyone know someone for these bulbs?

That is strange, e-92 lighting is ALWAYS on every post on the E65/66 forum if it ever has to do with lighting. He advertises what he has on stock to sell even if the OP doesn't have anything to do with purchase of lights

try E65 forums then I guess

BAD NEWS:

My GP Thunders are tripping error codes EVERYTIME the headlights turn on. I have not experienced this before, but then I haven't been driving at night.

I have been given some PIAA's that I have not cared for in the past and they work great! I'll post pics soon.
