    Exclamation Angel eyes with HID - SHOCKINGLY POOR

    ok, so i bought some angel eyes:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWN:IT&ih=008


    maybve i should of listend to people and spent that bit more and got FK ones.... but there fitted now.

    the light out put is gob smackingly perfetic!




    i mean i have to drive with fogs on to be able to see..!!!

    iv got two big rings of light going round from the projectors and thats it... nothing in the middle.

    the rings are nice and bright... wish it was like that all over...but useless for driving in the dark cause obviously you cant see???

    any ideas?

    and to hack me off even more i broke a clip fitting them!!! cheap china cr$%£!!!!!

    any ideas on what to do too improve would br great!"

    cheers

    For some reason from the way you have described it your headlights arean't comming on as the rings are for the sidelights then you have the projector part for headlights and the final bit for the full beam

    If this is the case i'll have to ask a stupid question first saying that you did put bulbs in it didn't you as they don't come with them apart from the rings. Next check your fuses and all the connections

    haha it was how i descirbed it...

    so 3 l.e.ds and halo rings - side lights
    projector with hid- dipped
    outter halogen - main beam

    i get 2 rings comeing off the hid part, two big rings of light, starts about 1 meter away from the car and gos right round?

    dose that make any sense?

    can you adjust projecters at all?

    cheers for helping autosparks... apreach8d (cant spell!)

    Going by the pics, they look pretty pants. Like Lexus-style rear lights, look crap and pretty much aren't suitable for use.

    i'm not sure why these angel eyes are any worse than the FK ones, I have a set which i'm not fitting untill christmas and i think they look fine. (the angel eyes i had for my old car were 5hitter build quality than these and they were made by 'ULTRA' ; the leds for the halos are actually easier to get to than the ULTRA lights as they are wired behind a rubber grommet, whereas the ULTRA angel eyes were sealed units that required taking the lenses off to get to the leds)

    ...I know that your problem with them is that the light output is crap but everyone has the same problem even with FK's. Also, the headlights aren't made to have HID's fitted, so the HID's not fitting can't be a reason to say that they are 5hit lights lol. I know i can't judge untill i have them fitted but cosmetically they look really good which is mainly why i have them. - as soon as the halos have been changed to white instead of yellow, which the FK angel eyes also have. (I will obviously also come across the poor light output problem but no different than if i was to buy FK's)

    ...At the end of the day, it's an aftermarket part which is never going to beat OE/GM.

    Any chance of a picture of them turned on? Can't see what the 3 LED's down the side are for, when you there are already the 2 halo rings for the sidelights.

    these aren't mine, they're from an ebay listing. Although they aren't lit up in the pic; the three LEDs are just additional sidelights and optional i suppose.

    (a photo of them on it the dark would be better lol)

    ..there is only £15 difference in price between these and the FK's on another website I stumbled across.

    these are what i call sh!t (based on looks anyway lol) :



    The indicators look like satelite dishes lol and they are only single halo headlights. Also the lens/glass is completely clear at the top of the headlights so you can see the fixings unlike others that continue the GM pattern . (FK and the ones with the 3 additional leds)
