Are there any angel eyes available for a facelift (2004) e46 coupe? ? I just checked on the above mentioned sites and came up empty handed

Yeah, and maybe this has something to do with why some guys recommend NOT PUTTING angle eyes on facelifted e46's with xenons?

I have a facelifted e46 coupe with xenons with angel eyes. I got the ae's from khoalty, but would recommend against them especially for these headlights. Of the three sets of ae's I've ordered from khoalty, two have had led's go out. Normally not a big deal since the other e46 headlights come apart quickly and easily, in the case of the coupe, having to bake them each time would become frustrating. Luckily the ones in my coupe are the ones that haven't had led's go out, but in the future I wouldn't get khoalty ae's again.

I know for a fact that umnitza does make and sell ae's for these cars, but like the others, they're not cheap. They also don't have them on the website (or they didn't last I checked) I had to email them and ask. JLevi may be the same scenario.

I also have a facelifted coupe and want ae's but the whole baking it thing is entirely the reason why i haven't done it.

200*F for 10 min isn't going to hurt the headlights at all. That's lower than the temperature of boiling water. Just take all the bulbs out and the ballasts/ignitors off first.

I've had the MyCarr 62 LED versions on both my E36 and my E46 (2 years and counting) and never once have I ha a startup or dim lighting issue, as I did with those BS CCFL versions time and time again.
