    I have to say these look sweet and I could be tempted myself to buy these as they look very OEM but without the square high beam section oh and they are Hid's/Xenon's.

    I have OEM Xenons but I like the black units which will also allow me to shine a little more due to mine being tinted.

    who are they made by?

    I'd be very wary of the quality of the projectors in these aftermarket lamps. I have an image somewhere showing the beam pattern of one...

    http://i25.tinypic.com/2ekpuld.jpg

    Thats the fella. Came from a merc forum where they buy these cheap units to get projectors on their mercs, the thread is about converting the depo projector to a proper quality unit from an E55 or RS6.

    When i baught my facelift lamps i ended up with two valeos one of which had snapped adjusters inside, and a brand new depo unit. I took the projector out the broken valeo and fitted it to the depo unit to avoid any similar issues!

    i'm with alpinehead - if you're going to go for angeleyes, get the black (i have same as alpinehead, except with silver bulbs to give a cleaner effect) - i've seen the chrome versions on the likes of bmw 3-series and the effect of the halo/angeleyes is lost in reflections. mine are pre-facelift, the post-facelift ones are a huge improvement, i reckon.

    if senna isn't keen on the angeleyes bit, i'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult to mod a standard sidelight into the main beam reflectors :-/

    auditurbo what lights are you using just now?

    I have Valeo facelift projectors fitted with standard 55w bulbs and find the light output perfectly acceptable.

    The projectors are notably better than the older style open lamps too

    As ive said a few times before, if your buying ebay lamps, the projectors arent good quality i posted a link further up the page to show just how bad the ebay projectors can be! It is possible to swap the valeo projectors into the ebay lamps to get the looks and still have the light output, means buying two sets of lamps though.

    If you do buy ebay lamps, go for the 99> ones as they are one piece and look better without the deviding line.

    I have some pics of my facelift lamps here which i painted internally as i find they have far too much chrome:

    Take a look and see what you think.

    I have a HID conversion and it is a massive improvement.
    I did not get the cheap kit though, mine is the 2 stage bulbs (main & full beam)

    2 stage bulbs? dont they use seperate H7's for mains and dip?

    HID mains are a bad idea tbh, it removes the ability to "flash" people as the lights take too long to fire and also turning them on and off quickly damages the ballasts etc.

    I'm pretty sure most factory HID installatins will still use halogens for the Main beam for that reason.

    The lights are made by FK and are regarded as a very good make for aftermarket parts.

    Doc: if your running factory HID's you should still consider swapping the projectors as afaik the projector lens is slightly different to the halogen version, and i presume the factory hid bulb wont fit the halogen projectors in the FK lamps.

    If they're aftermarket HID's fitted to the normal halogen projectors then its probably worth fitting the FK's as they come and comparing the projectors before going to the extra effort of swapping them as you may find they're good enough.

    I have OEM Xenon's and the FK lights just have hid kits added to them as you can buy them without the Hid's installed.
