Talking 2003 angel eyes

hey guys,
alright so i have been researching some options for some brighter angel eyes. my car comes stock with the xenon headlights, and i want the angel eyes to match that brighter white color that they have. it seems like changing out just the angel eyes alone with LED lights isnt going to be as reliable. also when im looking around i see that a lot of these headlight kits work only with the e39s up to 2000. so does this mean my car wont work with most upgrades? i want some cool headlights that have a brighter angel eye than stock. i am in the process of changing my fog light bulbs so they match as well.

either change your bulbs to higher wattage, or go to umnitza, i am trying to do the same but price is a big factor

Why would LED bulbs be bad? (Aside from eBay) Umnizta has the best AE's on the market, 5w/10w, and a lifetime warranty... heck thats why I bought a set, and no complaints here.
