I don't think it's that easy, the DEPO rings are glued on, hence the inability to upgrade them, the issue you will face in re-glueing them is the type of glue used may cause the headlight cover to fog (chemical reaction). Probably best to email Matt@Umnitza.com on this one.

On my 330Ci's DEPO Projector46s, for instance, the angel eye rings clipped in, and were not glued but then again, I bought them straight from some China retailer off eBay, and not Umnitza. Umnitza may glue them post-facto.
