I want to get a set of angel eyes for my 95 740IL some of them aren't compatible with Hid projector headlight systems. Here is a pic of mine. Any help would be great also any input as far as which eyes might be best. Every problem I have had with this car has been solved by this forum thanks.

I'm also looking for a set, but for the face lifted '99 shown in my sig. I imagine the same kit will work as the projectors seem to be the same between mine and yours.

What type are you looking at ? I was looking at a complete unit already assembled.

Just the kind I can install myself. I have plenty of tools. PLENTY. Are you talking about rebuying the whole headlight assembly with the halos already installed? I'm just looking to install them in the housings that are already on the car.

angel eyes

hello, i recently installed a set in my 01 e38 sport, you would be better off doing the install,you can find them on ebay for less than a hundred,that would include the remote fade on and off. i also think that are all the same from 95 thru 01. there are many diy's for the install. let me know if you have any questions .

Whole assy

Yea I'm was looking for the whole assy but after talking to a few people I think I will do the install. I know I want led lights but there is about 50 different choices. At least 60 lights apiece. I guess you spin the wheel a little. Thanks for the help.

www.e38.org : I just went to e38.org & did a quick page search {Ctrl+F} using "angel" as the search word and found 9 angel eyes DIYs that cover both the pre-facelift and facelift headlights. I didn't do a search here but there's gotta be at least one DIY in the parked thread on the e38 forum. E38 owners have been doing AE mods since they first appeared 12 years ago when the e39 first got them in 2001. And no, the design of the 1995-98 headlights are NOT the same as the 1999-01 headlights:


1995-1998 headlamps




1999-2001 headlamps ( scalloped bottom half and different insert behind the "glass")
