You might have noticed if you've looked at my picture thread that I've come to the conclusion it's best to just do what you like to your own car. You can't please everyone, and it's your car, so I just do what I fancy with it. There's always someone (or quite a few!) who won't like what you do, but others who get it. In the end you're the one paying for your mods, and you're the one driving your own car and looking at it most, so go for what you like mate
I see nobody's helped with your question above about xenon vs non projecter - I'm sorry I don't know about your car, but mine's a 2006 and I've just looked at the invoice, and mine are Xenon if that helps...
Yup as long as ir happy with it, thats all that matters


Thats great, tnx for letting me know

Ok guys ... the angel eyes i wanted from CPD have been out of stock for a while ... ive called them and emailed them but have had no response

I am now looking at the SSDD angel eyes. Anyone got these fitted? How bright are they? I don't want anything super bright. The ones mandy has on her M3 are perfect.

Or if anyone has a link and pics to any ebay ones that would be much appreciated

Tnx guys

These might be OK; don't look super bright.

They look good. Sorry to be a bit thick but what are SSDD? Where did you get them from in the end and was a simple installation?

Thanks,

David

How do you fit them ? Do you remove side lights and plug directly I to the side light bulb holder ?

Hi, you can get kits like that off ebay.. i wish it was like it wouldve been so much easier! The ssdd kit does not plug into the side light bulb holder as far as i know.

A friend of mine installed them.

Mine are wired in with the ignition so they work as daytime running lights.

Thanks

The link I posted was from a quick google. Obviously, it's pot luck buying off of a Chinese website and you have no control over quality or comeback. Having said that it might eb worth a punt?

That is a decent looking chin spoiler on DJ Syxx's car. I quite like that; what is it?

I have no idea (sure he will tell us), I don't even like it that much from the side but from the front it all looks evil.

What is people love for the angel eyes out of curiosity. Seems like every on adds them.
