Thinking of getting angel eyes


After a two year break, I am back in the BMW scene with my new 2005 325i sedan.

First thing I want to do now is to get a set of angel eyes. I have the stock HID headlights and I'm looking to get a set of LED angel eyes.

I had Depo headlights with CCFL angel eyes on my E36 and I had problems turning the angel eyes on during the winter. After some research it seems that LEDs are the best choice for our whether.

I love the Umnitza predator angel eyes but they are too pricy. I would like to get a set that's around the $100 mark.

I found this on Ebay:

Any suggestions on which brand and where to get a set from? Your help is appreciated.

During my search for angel eyes, I noticed that some angel eyes are only compatible with 1999-2004 BMW E46 3 Series Sedan or Wagon with factory equipped HID xenon headlights and not the 2005 model. Was there any change from 2004 to 2005? I thought the facelift was the only difference which was don in 2002.

Also, my car was made in October of 04, but it is a 2005 model as it says that on the ownership. Would the 2004 angel eyes be compatible with my 2005?

I got the bimmian set for my 02 coupe and they are great. Have you thought about emailing or calling up a place that sells them to get the right info for your vehicle?
