Question on new headlights

Postby abiel.pl » Wed Mar 30, 2011 4:20 pm

Ok first I was looking at DDM Tuning and was wanting to get their headlights, but I dont quite understand the difference in these 2 for the price difference of 5$

or
http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/E36-D ... t-Included


also wanted to understand another thing
What voltage to get?
What color bulbs are good? i was thinking 5k or 6k
Also what is good choice for the angel eyes? thinking CCFL cause cheapeast (but what is different with other ones)

Doesn't it look goofy HID's with the amber corner lights lit up...i have clear corner lights with silver amber bulbs


Thanks

as of right now? no. I remember this being brought up on bimmer forums and they said it wasn't illegal. I've had mine for about 2 months now

I am also looking at getting some lights from DDM tuning. Did you decide what type of angel eyes look best. I am having a hard time deciding. In some of the pictures that I have seen, the LED angel eyes look t0o big, too bright and too few. Although I have heard that the LED angel eyes are far more reliable compared with CCFL.

They were a little expensive but I like them $600 shipped FXR Conversion 55watt 6000k and HID and I love the flash to pass with magnetic shutters. I LOVE THEM
