E83 Angel Eyes retrofit

I want to add Angel Eyes to my 04 X3 3.0. It doesnt have that option installed and I love that look. If LED kits are available I'd like to know where. DIY would be helpful also... I really appreciate the help I've already received on this forum!!

are you comfortable putting your headlights into the oven to warm them up enough to pull the shield away from the headlight housing? Not many are so its a rare upgrade.

Yes, I watched a video about this and it seems the way to go. 15 minutes @ 250 degrees and it should loosen up the lens enough to pop it off and keep the glue intact to get a good seal when baking after re-assembly.

I'm just looking for a good set of LED angel eyes. I've read that the CCFLs are fragile and not that bright.
