Headlight Light Rings....

When i see a BMW or other expensive car cruising down the road i see those awesome looking lit up circles around the lights... They are gangsta.... how do you get those? are THOSE what projector headlights do? I've Seen a Few on Ebay but heard bad things about them. And some people have said Retrofit a kit from a tsx or what not. How much work do you have to do to retro them? And the HID lights, are they Xenon or something else? I think i'm going to go with 5000k maybe 6000K cause i need to see deer WAY before i slap into them. I still have the stock bulbs and they are crap. So lemme know!

but if you ever decide to do a black housing headlight mod, they do have the angel eyes available to add into the headlights, its just a plastic reflective ring with leds on them, check out ebay or any aftermarket auto/car shop

tsx retro fit is probably the best light output you can get. it might take you awhile if you havent done it before.

That has nothing to do with the "angel eye" or "halo" effect in the initial question, though.

In response to your original question, it is not the actual projector that creates the "angel eye" ring(s). HID bulbs and xenon bulbs are the same thing. I'm pretty sure that people and manufacturers call them xenons because the gas that the bulbs are filled with is called xenon gas. If Im not wrong, all HID light bulbs are xenon gas filled bulbs.

As far as I know, you are correct.

HIDs are fantastic, especially when paired with a good projector. I believe 4500 is the stock temp. I have 6000 in my GTP (no projector... output is pretty lame) My CB7 has 4500, I think... it's a stock BMW HID setup, run through Audi projectors. Impressive light output. My high beams are dimmer than the actual lights, but it's not blinding at all (they're aimed properly).

Projector headlights are just projectors. The angel eyes are an additional surround... they really don't do anything functional.



If you don't want to shell out the dough for HIDs, you can modify some high beam bulbs (9005) to fit your low beam sockets. I believe there's a DIY on it somewhere on here. The output is better, even with inexpensive bulbs. Not HID quality, but better than the 9006 low beam bulbs.

Pretty much. icedplaya123 did his retrofit while he was at work... as a crisis line counselor.

CCFL halos is extremely delicate. However, they are about 10x brighter then that of LED halos. S2000 projectors are just as good as TSX if not better; however the price for those are higher.

Aftermarket projector headlights with halos do not exist; they are all retrofits. Below is the set my friend (I helped! lol) retrofitted for my car...



Custom Retrofitted Aftermarket One-Piece Headlights with S2000 Projector Lenses with Modified* Shield
- 6000K Phillips Ultinon D2S HID bulbs
- HELLA HID Ballast
- 6000K Ultra White CCFL DDE Halos
- E46 Xenon Shrouds
- Amber LED Corner bulbs
*Modified Shield for deeper violet band and intense flicker
