headlights...

So with some birthday and Christmas money, I think I'm finally going to get a nice set of glass headlights and maybe some CCFL's. I'm not spending $500 for just a set of headlights, so if you think anything but ZKW's are crap, just dont say anything. Some guy not far from my dads house in NY is selling these for $200

BMW parts (3 series)

However, they dont like exactly the ones I want because the low beam looks weird... anyway, the other one is one from ebay. his feedback on the product is good, so I'm assuming its a nice setup. They are depos with angels.

What do you guys think?

If they are the ones that use the H1 style bulbs, do not go over the recommended wattage. They have a tendency to melt the housings.

i have those from ebay. They are nice, Depo Gen IV which is VERY close to ZKW. Have to install the rings yourself, but that isnt too hard. Light output is good, and they look GREAT with the 6000k HIDs. i HIGHLY recommend you get some HIDs to go in there. I always thought that i didnt really need em and they were just and indulgence.....but they are 10 million times better than i thought they could be and makes the lighting look much more modern. I dont have DDE's wired up anymore tho, i grew tired of the look

I got the ones from craigslist. I talked him down to $150... so the worst case I'm sure I can just sell them to someone else. Ill let you all know how it goes and take pics when they're in.
