Has any one tried to put halo's into their head lights? I was planning to head up my head lights in the oven until the silicone melts, then pull apart the housing. Then once i got that, i will fabricate a halo ring. Has any one done this? If any one has, please let me know, i want to know is there anything you might run into. And some picture would be nice. Thanks

I have deffinitely seen it done before. I will try and find where I saw it and post a link or something. I honestly didnt think it looked as good as the e36 or e46. but at night it looked fine. Good luck and kudos on finding an inexpensive way to set your car appart.

haha, thanks. Here's a link to one of the sites i found it at: http://www.bimmertoys.com/xcart/customer/p...&cat=310&page=1 .
I just got this 16 year old car several days ago. It's just my first step. I kinda don't wanna waste my money on a car that old, so i'm just gonna add little things to satisfy my anxious hands. I took my precious time cleaning those basket rims, it took me a total of one hour to make that baby spotless.

you'll have better luck searching for info if you search for "Angel Eyes"... since that's what they're typically referred to as

here's how i plan to do it. What do you guys think? I have 3 extra low beams so i'll try it out. If it turns out nice, i'll buy some higher voltage low beams and do it on that. here's the link http://www.geocities.com/crx_auto/angel_eyes.htm

wait explain that again. I don't understand how your doing it? Is it hard to take off apart the head lights. I got the Sylvania h5006 bulbs. Can i just pop it in the oven for 15 minutes and peel it apart, or is it harder than that?

Well i'll be trying to make the DIY angel eyes tomorrow after school. I still gota go down to home depot to buy some supplies, might as well get paint so i can red out my tail lights. This guy did a very nice job. http://e30.bmwdiy.info/red-tails/index.html . Damn i gota go to radio shack to get a battery for my Key light. I'm replacing the regular bulb with a blue led. Thank god winter break is coming up. I have lots to do.

what kinda headlights do you have? if they're the stock sealed beams, there's no way you can open them.... seriously... it's impossible unless you break em open

i know guys who have done it... most have taken them right back off... it's seriously not as easy as it sounds & not worth wasting your money unless you find a good kit for cheap... and a guy on r3v makes one that he's done alot of R&D on... his name's nick, ie inspar8er... from what i've heard, at this point its the most developed kit for e30s and alot better quality than something that you could make on your own w/o doing it 50 times before - http://www.mmsport.s5.com/e30.html

Hey guys,

Just swingin over from e3s. Pete thanks for the plug, i'll thank you over at e3s too. I wasn't really aware the market was still this big for the kits for the e30.

Here's a couple pics so you can get the idea.







$167 usd for those interested shipped. PM or e-mail for more details.
