Sypder Auto CCFL Halo Dual Projectors

As the title states, i just recieved my used ebay: spyder auto ccfl dual halo projectors for my E39 528i. Definitely didnt need new headlights as my car is pushing out clouds of white smoke at the moment...but i couldn't resist bidding on these headlights because they were so cheap! Paid $80 on fri, arrived at my door step monday. For being used the headlights look "like new" and are "close" to oem looks for a fraction of the cost...Definitely look alot better than expected and they came with bulbs.

However my next step is to yank these Sypder Autos back out, and adapt my Pre-facelift Xenons Hid Ballasts onto the back of these spyder autos...no Halos atm as im waiting to buy some quick splices and heat shrink to tap into my parking wires...will also be putting in some aftermarket LEDS rings and i have 6000k angel eyes that i need to splice in as well. Will post an update once i get the rest of my supplies next week the latest. Let me know what you think good or bad. Haters, hate away!
They look much newer than my old headlights but dont put out HID output so they look weak at night, will be fixing that very soon!

for 80$ can't go wrong and you are going to upgrade the projectors even better

Exactly brotha, might spend ~$60 on these remote control LED Rings That have 16 diff. colors i saw on ebay. So tempted. I havent read too many good reviews on CCFL Rings which came with these Headlamps. Hmm
