Exclamation Head light Dilemma

So I currently own a 98 528i, and have been searching for months as to which sort of angel eyes I should get (I have the OEM non angel eyes right now). This is where you guys come in! Help me decide the ones that will be the most bang for my buck! So these are the ones I have finally narrowed it down to:

Projector39 Headlight Set - JleviSW

Umnitza Projector 39 Hella Style With Orion V2 BMW E39 97-03
PS: what does Plug and Play (with provided harness) mean?

HID Kits, BMW Aftermarket Bumpers & Lighting, DEPO - DDM Tuning

I'm looking for your opinion as to which would be the brightest (preferably with a blue hue to the lights, if not, then white), durable, and also which ones you think I should buy. Don't forget the options that the websites offer, ie LED angel eyes or CCFL

Thanks everyone!

I'm saving up for Umnitza's Projector39 lights. The Orion V2s are the best angel eyes available for the E39, and if you get the FX-R projector retrofit you will have bixenon, although I hear you wont really ever need highbeams with the FX-R projectors. Keep in mind that the headlight is not what produces the color of the light, but the bulb, and brightness is mainly due to the ballast. Best of luck with your purchase!

Edit: If you want the extra options that make the Umnitza DJ Autos so good, go to umnitza's website instead of the seller you linked to.

we didn't pay you for this raving endorsement, but it's 100% true.

OP:
Don't just compare product prices, try to compare product quality and parts. You'll find ours are the best overall value.

Look for the FX-R retrofit, it's the best one on the market.
