Angel Eyes are really hot, but expensive. Are angel eyes built to be used with a 'daily driver' or are they mostly for cars that don't see any kind of bad weather or well, anything bad.
I'm just curious, if someone wanted to go all out when replacing their E36s lights, and wanted Angel Eyes, but drive their car all year, all the time, everywhere, is it a bad idea??
Thanks guys!

High qulaity ones are good for years of daily driving. Cheaper LED ones arent.

Id have to agree with El Presidente. Cheaper leds are terrible and will fade away fairly fast. If your want to go all out on head lights go with ZKW's with angel eyes!

hey Eurobeem, im going to be ordering those lights very soon for my black E36...

By the way, a friend of mine said he replaced his headlights and i was wondering if you guys had ever heard of those lights heating up too much or possibly melting the wires? That's what he said happened to him. Arent the enclosures heat resistent or something like that? Thanks for the help...

the only what you can melt the wires is by running bulbs over 55W. I run 35W low HID and 55W high Halogen and have no problems with anything melting, and I bought the cheap ellipsoids.
