    LEDs in Angel eyes : White spots...The Answer...?

    Many of us have had the problem of white spots on the angel eye rings in the FK or Ultra headlights...and no matter how many layers you paint the tip with, the problem is still there, so....

    I gave ultraleds.co.uk a ring today to see what they could do...if there was a better solution to the problem...They suggested their normal "cheaper" non-super bright LEDs...they are sending me a sample of these in the post...Will let everyone know in this thread if they turn out better than the superbright ones or not

    To stop it you need them to not point direct at the ring.

    Maybe if there were 2 LED's that shine at 45 degrees that would be better

    dont think this would be possible...since the LEDs squeeze through a hole of approx equal size to their diameter...unless they were 2 micro small ones?

    how do BMW get their angels so perfect? anyone know?
