the ring is a bulb itself. it's a hollow tube filled with flourescent and neon gasses. (just like a neon sign.. or a flourescent light bulb). Problem with them is they don't have a very long life span, and when it blows you have to replace the entire ring. The other problem is the gas becomes heavy in cold weather and has difficultly turning on... in very cold weather the angel eyes won't turn on at all. Which personally, kinda sucks for me... since when it's cold out is also when I drive around in the dark the most---since it stays dark till 7am and night falls at 5pm.
