Mein Auto: 2007 e90 328i
Headlight Got water vapor all in it

My car is a 2007 e90 328i. The car originally came with halogens. I installed an HID kit last week but my left headlight stopped working and my right headlight got water vapor in it I just want to pull the plug on some led angel eyes and i was looking at these...

I've always been tempted to switch out my lights. A couple things have stopped me, and may apply with these: 1, these don't come with built in hid so you're going to be drilling and face the same potential water issues you have now 2, I'm not sure if the led rings will work as DRLs without having the switch on the parking lamp position, 3 DEPO is a popular brand but their beam pattern isn't the best... Then again it will be better than your current setup.

I forgot to add they have a version of these with the hid kit already installed for 500. Thoughts?

That knocks one issue off the list. Now about the rings, it may be that the housing somehow compensates for that, or maybe you can code it. Hopefully someone will chime in on that who has some experience.
