E39 angel eye bulbs?
Anyone using led bulbs? Any pics? How's the daytime visibility?

LEDs aren't designed to take alot of heat from the headlight bulbs and you need to get ones that have a wide light pattern like a regular bulb.

Daylight performance is weak!

Angel eye bulbs
Actually you need a focused beam like a flashlight. You can order stock bulbs from auto camping, (or through us at napa) with bulb # 64113 osram or you can order the whole thing for like $40 each.

Another option is Lumens has 2 types of LED upgrades. one is 200 lumens and the other high power is 960 lumens. You can buy these from Overdrive.
