That exact style has been on Civics, Accords, Preludes, Foci, etc. for years. Guy I know has them on his MX-6 (unpainted too).

no it's gonna make it look like a Ford Focus with those ugly lights like that :puke:

I can picture them installed already, it's going to look like those Passats. Too much plastic on the front IMO.

the lights look too small like integra's .

02-18-2004, 03:58 AM

i wonder how do they look like when they're installed with the matching clear corners ..... perhaps they look better on a black e36.

02-19-2004, 06:35 AM
THAT?!!!! :puke:

sorry for caps :D

Seen em for a few weeks now. I guess they were designed to match the G2 style corner lamps being sold recently. I think these new headlights will make your e36 look like total crap though, even if they're painted the colour of your car. As well, it doesn't look like they have a glas lense covering the lamps, so if a rock hits them, they're toast (because I bet the glass protecting them isn't of high quality)

yeah I've seen these around... I have a couple problems with them though.

1) The angel-eyes are LED and not very bright.
2) the angel-eyes are recessed deep in the housing... meaning viewing the vehicle at an angle, you will not see them.. or only see them partially. The complete halo's will only be visible when looking head on.
3) Just preference---I like the glass covering the headlamps... I think it adds a "modern" touch to the car.

but that price, while expensive.. is really not that bad for HID Projector's w/ Angels.

Oh I wuznt aware of these issues ... Is there anything else that you'd recommend ? I wouldn't want to spend 1000 CAD if they're not bright enough ... They seem bright in the picture. I thought u can get bright light with LEDs?

LED angel eyes tend to "fade" out at the opposite end of the ring. (you can actually see in the picture, the halo's are brighter at the bottom... and don't distribute the light evenly.

the brightest angel's you get are Lava Lightning's. The most versatile use Lightboxes.

It's up to you...

Yeah man those LLAE lights look amazing !!! That's a better and cheaper alternative.
