If i were to have a set of no euro headlights that were projectors or a h4 headlight could I cut a angel eye ring at the bottom and put it in?. I figured if I got a angle eye and cut the ring at the bottom I could put them in being that the hole is large enough . I would have to use a adheisive to make them stick. But I think it is possible. Just a idea. :huh?:

IMO, angel eyes on e30's look like crap.:puke:

Keep your money and buy yourself some nice euro smiley ellipsoids!

after you do the exchange duty and shipping it will be about the same.

I guess I should have been more specific. you can get them in germany everyday for 199 euros ..but after exchange and shipping ..same thing

I don't understand what you mean about cutting the ring... what would that accomplish? And I don't think the ring would light up well if you cut it in half.

the ring is lit from either side if you cut it exactly in half how would the light change?. I de headlight comes apart but a us one dosent. So if you were to cut the ring in half you could theroeticly fit it through the hole

Oh you mean the hole that the bulb goes in? Are you sure it'd fit? And is the ring small enough that it would fit inside the lens?

Jase

well you could put a 2 part epoxy carfully inside the lense. then with the ring cut put it inside. i would need needlenose plyers to do it.

C'mon Jase, we both know that will look G.H.E.T.T.O. If you do decide to do it, i HIGHLY recommend neons inside and underneath your car........:D

those are the uglyest colour. Just get some h4's and it make the E30 look mean at night you can get a kit with a led that you can have a nice glow when the lights are not on

Jase

isn't the only thing smoked on e30 lights just the lense correct? i think to bull of nice angel eyes on an e30 you'd need a body kit or those angel eyes from nickieplace if they actually sale them. they look bad ass but as of now i can't understand spending that much on lights.

dude ,he is right .I am not sure if it is gonna light up nice. Jut get a H4 upgrade and you are set.

Jase

I decided to go with a set of de smilies or h4's. the work is not worth the hassle

ANGEL EYES ON E30'S R CRAZY

i never said i was not thinking of still using the angel eyes just that i would think in the H4 it would be too much work to be worth it. If i get de's then i probably will put them in

One problem where talking Halogen headlamps here which equal some serious heat and rings which are made of fibre or that other stuff. To me they wouldn't last long and if you cut fibre it is not fixable ie:useless. I may be wrong about needing a bodykit to pull of angel eyes. But as soon as I see a picture of an e30 with them I'll know for sure.

Well My mtechII is on for sure plus some eyebrows. Already got wheels. I was just looking into some lights for the front and rear. I went on ebay a few time am could get some de's for about 100 but then I have to pay 50-60 for shipping plus duty. So i might be able to find some used ones in canada. maybe....

I've always questioned that eBay stuff and they have some good looking deals on things it seems. But what if it's shipped and they have my money and the item isn't what they said or doesn't work like he/she reported or even work at all. Then we have problems.

It a great place to search for lights especially the german and that other one, but you all say you'll still be paying the same when it comes to shipping & handling.

shipping by DHL(germany post) is 29-59 euros depending on weight. up to 10kg for 29 euros. so it is about 60 for shipping.I do have to admit that you see alot more sets of smoked de's there than anywhere I've seen.
