Lighting Solution?

i am teh stupid when it comes to stuff like headlights and angel eyes, so please fill me in. i know there is a huge bash over daytime brightness of the LED options.

i got this idea and here is what i want to do.

i want to get angels
the big outer angels, i want to be blue
the smaller inner angels, i want to be white (what is the factory color-yellow?)
i want them to be bright and visible in both day and night

thanks!


EDIT::: ok, changing direction. i want a bright white or whiteish blue, ideas?

Impossible. The inner and outer rings are lit by the same bulb.

+1 No can do. Best option is to get LED based upgrades that will emit a pure white or a true blue.

Is it possible to get amber colored halos? I thought I saw a black 135 on here a while back that had them.

Get an amber or yellow colored H8 bulb and install.

Can you shed a little light on which ones, price and where to buy? Is there an LED amber option that would look better than a halogen?

Sorry to thread jack. Bonus point to me for the humor though.

I am not sure about amber, that would be tough to find. There are 3000k colored bulbs that would achieve a yellow look.

We do offer Xenon White, True Red and True Blue LED solutions for your car, they are our WeissLicht LED Angel Eyes.

WeissLicht like I mentioned above, it's an LED based replacement that emits a pure white output.

I think I will be following your lead, I had 3000k in my headlights but it just looks like OEM. Time for a change and white looks slick

Bulb replacements will do nothing about the uneven brightness.

AiBs have this covered on the e92 applications, focus is being directed towards 1-series models.
