which angel eye?

Hi,

My next project is to clean the headlights and install angel eyes for my 2003 745li. there seems to be a lot of options out there. Can you please recommend which kit and white leds (plug and play) to buy?
I heard the 3M and umnitza are good. is there anything better?
Thank you

Get Mtecs from E92 lighting and have them match the color for your fog lights.

Thanks a lot..

They both look super bright and I guess they're around $80 right?

I have a gray 745 and I actually like the golden/yellowish color on the stocks. Is there any way to increase their brightness without changing the color to white? like a yellow led perhaps?

Yes yellow LEDS will do it. Mtec's are just under $200

Are you actually opening up the headlamps? If so you should go with the led rings that replace your current halos. Can't remember what they're called.

Edit: I think they are Umnitza Orion V2.

I am in the process of opening my lights to restore them and upgrade the Angel Eyes. Umnitza Orion V4's are the latest and greatest. Supposedly much brighter than the V2's with more led's for a smoother look

V4 are brighter yes.
Require cutting the headlights.

Our drop in ICE VXX - same brightness and quality as the Mtech, usually 50% cheaper.
