he's right...the only way you can do them on the u.s e30 is if you use those gay stone chip guards...they look like crap..heres a pic

yea, for all you people who dont wanna buy euro ellipsoids for e36, we are making an angel eye kit for you as we speak. If you have ellipsoids, im 100% sure they will work. does anyone have a pair of used or damaged e46 headlights? they will be returned when im done.

The Kit will be a fair price, much, much cheaper than the Jim powell kit or having to buy Inpro angel eyes also. Remember too since we are located in toronto, you dont have to pay any import duties or taxes

mkgino and e46_lover, IM still seeing if I can find the link for you.

You might want to experiment on the US spec lights first before you sell a product like this.....

Keep in mind the Euro ellipsoids have glass bezels from which the ring fits into...it wedges in a little crevice and remains in its place b/c of it. You would have to glue the Angel eyes to the US spec lights which might not be that good because the heat from the lens would melt the halo altogether..... also..what if you have to replace a bulb in the future? how would you get the glue off.

Also, where would you tap the wire into? The euro ellipsoids have a city light that you can tap into...US spec dont.....I suppose you could tap into the parking lights but you should really experiment on yours first before you start selling something.

Just some heads up!

I have seen these installed on some VW's and there have been issues. Two months after they were installed they started to blister. Also the guy that sold them can not be found and has left a lot of people with useless crap. So be ready to eat your money if these fail.

All of this has been taken into consideration, if we come out with a kit then we will test all of this, dont worry. The kit wouldnt be out for a very long time, and all heat considerations would be taken into account. On and the rings fit right into the us spec lights same as the ellipsiods, I know I have both. Guys you worry too much, all tests will be made. We will come up with a very affordable kit.
