    yeah thats what i was worried about, i don't want to spend £150 to get them and then they blow and im back to no angel eyes.

    so are the rings just led's that can be replaced?

    I personally would stick to OEM - either 1-piece Valeo facelifts, or HID's.

    More fitting to the B5's personality. Halo's on cars other than BMW just look wrong.

    I have the depo/fk black housing halo lights on my car. These are the ONLY aftermarket headlights I reccomend... the cheap "halo" lights give terrible light output and are very low quality.

    Each halo has 3-4 #74 bulbs in them... which provides pretty even lighting of the rings. The actual rings are just lenses snapped into place and there are reflectors for each bulb behind the lens. If one bulb goes out, they're very easy to replace.

    Here is a few pictures of a dismantled light, as well as the lights on my car.

    The depo/fk lights come in either one or 2 piece... get the 2 piece version for your car and they will be a direct fit, no cutting of the fenders and the wiring will plug right in.

    @ auroan - that download speed in your sig is mental!

    I thought I was doing well with 10496 kb/s with Be-unlimited!

    I'm guessing it's not a domestic set-up...

    (sorry to all non-nerds for the hijack!)
