Angel headlights

Im looking at upgrading to angel headlights for my 95' 325is. I found some on ebay for 130 but im not sure if they are some knock offs or not. Any ideas?

Don't buy anything off of eBay. Get something from DDM Tuning or Umnitza.

Unless they are genuine ZKW or Hella OEM BMW lights, they are knockoffs. In other words, 99.999% of the lights on eBay are knockoffs. The lights from DDM and Umnitza are also knockoffs, but they're at least semi-decent.

Way too much chrome, AEs are way too thick, and AEs never came on E36s to begin with. I'm obviously not a fan.

You know, I get if you don't like the gap I can "somewhat" understand the one piece headlight(well, no I can't but moving on...), it's the chrome that really bothers me. I like angel eyes but only subtle ones. Too much light for a ring.

Stay out of eBay's reach, on a commoditized product like headlights with angel eyes, you're going to see a humungous amount of garbage.

That said, our products aren't that much more - and in many cases far less and you get a great value.
Take a look at our site - www.umnitza.com in the headlights/bmw/ section.

I do admit that was a bad link to put up, it was the first I found ha. For the time being it will stay with clears as I can't justify spending 400 on headlights yet.
