#1 yes you can
#2 you will need to tap into the running light real easy will go into this a little more later
#3 very nice

Umtizma are the way to go yes there more expensive but you will be more please with the function, and form then the ebay ones which tend to have little fuction example; low light output, adjusters that dont work,etc. Now back to #2 the untizma i think come with resistors pre wired in to elimanate the cop car look and the check light message . The wbay ones definately do not which if it bugs you then you would have to do this yourself. For the angel eye wiring if memory serves me I believe it was the brown/ green on the light connector on one side and the brown/blue wire on the other side and then just use chassis for ground. All three of my e39 s have aftermarket ebay light but I ended up modifying them with hid s so what i have spent on getting them to perform the way they should have I maybe only save a minimal amount of money.

2) do i need to buy extra cables to make angel eyes work? <-yes. Tap your parking lights, or a ignition-on wire in the ecu.
3) how does hid lights looks on these headlights? <-always better than halogen if you aim them correctly.
4)where do you guys recommend buying them from? <-forum sponsors
5)any sales going on on headlights with angel eyes have you bought from ebay? Any good reviews

Yes, but you need more parts and harness. You need the ride height sensors and the harness for them. Otherwise you won't see very well and you will really piss off oncoming drivers. Some of them may be cops.

Why would you need to buy ride height sensors or harnesses or other parts ?http://www.umnitza.com/projector39-h...03-p-5659.html.
