Hi,

I am new to this forum also, and I just don't know what I was thinking when I bought and installed my Angel Eyes without even visiting one forum. Anyway, I bought Angel Eyes from a website and the guy whom I talked to on the phone sounded very enthusiastic about it being super bright.

Once I got them, I tried to install them myself, but sweating for 2 hours I just gave up and sought professional help. An aftermarket "fix-up" auto sports shop did it for me and connected the lights to the parking lights, hence making it blink when I would trun my indicator(turn signal) on. I loved it but the problem was that it was not bright enough in DayLight or when the Bi-Xenon headlights were on during night time.

So I contacted the installer again, and he said he can connect the LEDs to my battery directly, using a remote control box, so that I can turn the lights on and off via a separate remote and it will also have more power since it will be directly connected to the battery. I had him do it.

Now it is brighter, and rather visible as a very slight "TRULY angel soft" ring around the middle high beams, even when the headlamps are on. But I wanted to know if there is any other way to get the Angel Eyes very bright so that they would be distinctly visible.

At this point, I can not have this car without Angel Eyes, it makes a world of difference. See for yourself in the following pics, which were taken before the recent direct connection to the battery:

Hey, no offence, but where did you get those shitty angel eyes?

How much did you pay?

I could have sold you a 10 times better set for about $300

just look how bright the DDE's are in my ad banner on the top right of this site.

LOL NO OFFENSE, HAH!!!

You can always get them brighter by putting in better LED's. Maybe like 13,000 mcd. My bet is those are 10K or less.

Lol, well they look really nice and subtle. I paid 300 for them. do you mean shitty as in NOT BRIGHT?! or what?! lol

Anyway, I also paid another 300 for installation. so I do not want to spend any more money. do you think I could just swap the actual LEDs with other ones, without having to rewire?! and how much? I mean another 300 bucks is wy too much. it will come to 900. altogether

Besides, the 300 you mentioned, is that just the LEDs or one of those that you have to swap the whole compartment?!

Thanks,
0BMW

Holly F*ck!!!!!! You paid $300 to have them installed!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a very reputable shop in Dallas and I would only charge around $80 to install DDE's!!!!!!! I would get some $ back from the place you had them installed.
