Has anyone brought something similar to these headlights? Or should I try something else, if so what kind and where can I get it?

I would personally try something else. Those look to me like some really cheap-made aftermarket headlights. If i were you, i would do what many members on here did, and just add the halos(many nice ones out there) yourself to your existing high-quality headlights. Just my opinion.

To add the halo, would I have to break the factory seal glue on the headlight or does it just comes apart?

Good advice from Bliss. Also keep in mind that sooner or later those halo's with lights in them are going to blow.. you're going to need to know how to replace/repair them yourself when the time comes. Those aftermarket headlights look like they use proprietry halo's... where are you going to find replacements for those?

from what i know there isnt any "glue" or anything. The lens is held by clips, and there's a rubber seal, but thats about it.

Oh thats sound easy, I might go towards that direction. I want to put on projectors headlights, is that brighter than my headlights now, or I should just leave it alone?

I know the "Predator Chromiums" are pretty nice. There are some suppliers for those. Try contacting some of our sponsors for prices.

I went through all the sponsors and I can't find those headlights you recommended.

you should go with an H.I.D xenon Headlamps you can by a kit to put into your car, this is a much better lighting system
