Help with aftermarket headlight purchase, please

I have a 2013 E82 with OEM halogens and am looking for Zenon with angel eyes. I have been researching for months and the best I have seen are the Depo V2's. The issue is that some of the vendors seem shady/ish or may not reliable and others seems to miscategorize their lights and I cant seem to get and feedback from them.

If anyone has a recommendation I would love to hear it. I am looking for some HID's with daytime visible rings.

And sorry if this is the same question asked 1000 times

Have you considered getting aftermarket halogen projector lights and using LEDs? My setup was like 300 for the pair and they look better imo
