    don't get the silver ones, they're SUPEr bright chrome, and look bloody awful.

    the black version of the angel eyes doesn't look nearly so bad, and you don't have to wire up the angel eye rings either:

    The light that burns twice as bright , burns half as long.

    I don't think angel eyes suit any cars apart from bmw's, get some devil eyes like I've got, they look awesome.

    Havent done anything to them yet as ive been a bit busy restoring my alfa n its a bit cold to work outside.
    Yeh they fit ok but they were designed for the pre facelift so they would fit, obviously the only issue was the wiring as they were designed for the a3.
