I'll go for inpro angel eyes

I think I'll go ahead and get the inpro angel eyes becase this way it's a combo of ellipsoides (which I need) and the angel eyes.
but i wanna know if I could make them brighter and blue?

There's a GB on ellipsoids in the for sale section, just in case you didn't know. Good price and pretty sure you can add DDEs to them.

GB = Group Buy Ellipsoids only though, no DDE.

$550 for in-pro ellipsoids w/ DDE?

Ah OK, that's not a bad price too.

Sickfinga has them and modified them to glow brighter and bluish, you may want to PM him.

I made my own angel eyes... they arent as bright as umnitza's angel eyes, but I am happy with them. I will post a picture when I get my digi-cam back from the repair shop.

Good choice with the inpros. Its a really good two in one deal. I think that DDE with ZKW ellipsoids are a waste of money considering the cost it takes to make them. Inpros originally are really dim, you can hardly see the rings. But if you do the LED conversion to them which is really straight forward, then they will be as bright as any angel eyes out there. Plus you get the ellipsoids too. Also you have to remember when you order something from the states your paying useless customs taxes and what not.

I think the best thing and the cheapest way to have angel eyes is to do this. If you want the DDE with ZKW ellipsoids only order the rings and nothing else. These should cost you about $50-75 bucks. Then you get some LED bulbs and some resistors that will cost you no more than $25 dollars, and you can have nice blue angel eyes. This is exactly what someone from DTMpower did and they came out great. Look Here

Im going to get rid of my lightboxes cause I hate them. So much heat comes from them and the one on the drivers side light, sits right next to my intake, which sucks in all the hot air from the lightbox. The other side has started to burn a hole into my winshield washer fluid plastic container and I cant even f*cken mount my car alarm on anymore, it just sits there unmounted. What an ingenious design.

If anyone wants to know the cheapest way to have angel eyes, PM me. You should never pay $460- 600 CAD for any angel eyes. Its not worth it. You can have them for under $100 bucks.

Im going to do a writeup as soon as I do my LED conversion to my Jim Powell DDE, so everyone knows how they come out.

If anyone has any questions as to how to make them yourself and save lots of cash just PM me I would be more than happy to help you for FREE!
