Steph, come by the shop or if you need it asap my place ill show u the differences and help you with your lighting struggle. lol
Yes I know. It is still upgradable to CCFL easily, and she can still change the filter of the bulb to give it a different color. Similar to how I made filters for my custom angel eyes to make them red, blue, white, etc.

You got it. Her angels right now are either using 50w or 75w, but she can retrofit any bulb in there relatively easily. Personally I'm not a fan of super-bright angel eyes... some of them are so bright they reflect around the entire headlight housing---most people won't even notice they're angel eyes unless they stare at them. I know most people prefer the look of super bright angel eyes... just not my thing though. It's up to her what type of look she wants for her car though.. if she wants that very bright look, then she'll need to upgrade to CCFL's.

I don't like:

Not at all. Pop open your hood and you'll see metal clips holding the glass to the headlight housing along the top. These metal clips also exist along the bottom and sides too. Flip these off with a flat-head screwdriver. (of course remove the headlights from the car first). Ta-daa, the headlight is now open. If you want to upgrade to CCFL, then literally just pull off the old angel eyes, clip new ones in place, run the wires out the back of the housing (using the existing hole back there), and give it power.

Hey justin, i see what your saying but ive noticed a lot of umnitza's pics are using a fast shutter. I saw pics of some peoples chromiums and it looks the same, the exposure setting is too long and it glares. I have CCFL and you've seen many of ours. Not an arguement, but a valid point when seeing pics of HID and angel eyes. A lot of the time peoples pics of HID with Depo or zkw the light comes ONLY from the ellipsoid, in other pics it comes from the whole thing. I did the "stealth" mod putting black tape around the ellipsoid and its the only way to truely get it like that, unless you put HID ellipsoids in it.
