Yeah, I used to want angel eyes on my E36 as well, but lately I've decided that I would rather have the glass headlight units with some good halogen bulbs instead! =D...

I only liked the angel eyes because of their intimidating appearance...

If I decide to upgrade my headlights I will get DEPO projectors and Xenon bulbs. I don't think angel eyes are worth the $100.

I say go with the brightest. Bluest is just faking Xenon. You can afford to go for the cool blue tint if you have the added luminance that HIDs provide. Halogens aren't as bright, so bluish halos are even less bright.

If I get those projectors, what would I need to upgrade to HID?

PIAA Superwhites are the best halogen in my opinion, those are what i'm putting in mine.
