HiDs vs Angel Eyes

What is the difference between the two cause I was told that angel eyes project the light and HiD's have a wider vision of the road?

you can't drive on angel eyes, they are too weak, theyr only for looks, HID are stronger and brighter than halogen bulbs. I think 8000K is the best color

It seems to me you have received inaccurate information. Angel eyes are the illuminated rings around the HID projector/bulb (see below). High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights use Xenon gas bulbs instead of regular filament bulbs to produce light.

i see thanks for the info but for angel eyes can't you use HiD's too but it takes more work right? And I agree 8000k is a good color but 6000k comes close.

HID's and "angel eyes" (the rings) are separate things, as explained above.
