Question E36 Angel eye CoNfUsIoN!?

Alright you guys, I'm totally confused. About a week ago I got some glass euro headlights w/ a ccfl angel eyes kit that i ordered from ebay for my 95 325is. Unfortuantely the healights came without bulbs and without the angel eyes installed so now i'm going to have someone do it 4 me(dont know how). My question is: Is the angel eyes kit that was sent to me (ccfl 7000K from Racing Dash Enterprise) high enough quality to install inthe headlights? What is a better kit? Techs are telling me that I need to get bulbs. What kind do i need to get? I don't want them to lbe bright..white even! Would an hid kit be better? Also, techs are telling me that water could leak into my headlights if i get the angel eyes installed..is this true? Geese, everybody has euros with angel eyes, is the process really that difficult..used: ARghh..please help.

Chandler is an unknown quantity at this point
So your angel ring was separate? You should bought DEPO angel ring head lamps from www.euroautolights.com or something. It should be all plug and play

ridikuledind has a little shameless behaviour in the past
How good is the quality of the tail lights and corner lights that understeer.com sells. It seems kind of cheap to be able to get front signals, side, and rear for $190, When bavauto is more then that for just the rears.

I think understeer sells DEPOs, which aren't a;; that bad, but aren't OEM BMW, which I think was Hella for the tails, etc.

Bavauto is kinda high on many things. I bought my corners, sides and taillights off of Ebay, about $150. No problems whatsoever.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.
