I just got the standard white ones. Whered you get yours? I grabbed mine from umnitza. I may upgrade the rings to the blue ones at some point. Unless you know where I can find a set of red ones.

Also, how did you install yours, did you take the headlamps apart? Or do the glue to outside and use the covers?

i got mine on ebay. i did glue them to the outside and then put bavauto covers over the top. i didnt feel comfortable taking the lenses apart and all that. what kind are yours ? LED like mine ? if they are led it's easy to swap the LEDs to the color you want as there is only 4 of them. i'll get a better pic later.

major PITA was that the headlights got 3 nipples each and you cant glue to them or next to them... because the ring falls exactly over. so what i did was put small pieces of plastic on the headlight and then glued the rings to that.

another pain was the chrome ring falling off on my left lo-beam white i was putting the cover on.

one more thing: on the right (passenger side) the light blue wire is the parking light wire, and on the drivers side it's the green one. on both sides, the brown is ground.

Mine arent the LED style, they're the OEM style CFCLs.

I'm gonna rip my lights apart I think. I want them all stealthed.
Damn that blue looks nice. Maybe i'll pick up a set of blue in a few months if I cant find some red rings.

My car comes back late this week from its control arm nightmare, then I get to rip my lights apart, oh joy.

The guy from umnitza wants me to take some pictures of the install for the e34, who knows, I may end up famous.

I have to drop off my graspics too. for my sexy steel rims.

I cant wait for my angel eyes though, your's look sick as hell.

The install for mine looks hella easy. I cant imagine bieng able to mess it up too bad. even torque's ebay ones seem very easy to install.

all you needed for mine was some strong epoxy glue and the bavauto covers. some glue on the light, stick it on, hold it, or tape it so it can hold itself... then slide the covers over, hook the wires up and you are done. if i was to do it again, it would probably take me half an hour. it took over an hour due to my problems of one chrome ring falling off etc.

Nice !! That does look awesome.

I also bought (or tried buying) angel eye rings on ebay. But the asshole took all the money and never sent me anything. Wouldn't reply or return calls. Paypal, ebay sucked at getting my money back. Finally my credit card company is investigating the issue and hopefully I will get my money back.

Waiting for Deity's to come in. Send in some good pics.
BTW how much did you pay? (both of you)

Best,
TheHire
