    Angel Eyes- Fitting / Reccomendation

    im looking to get angel eyes...dont want the cheap looking ones with the 3 leds goin down the side... i think the ones i need r the fk ones which are more expensive. looking around for the best price atm.

    i want to get xenons and angel eyes...which 1 do u reccomend i get first?
    will xenons look better with the angels or the standard lights?

    also fitting the angels? will i have to take the whole front bumper off? hard work?

    Laastly ive seen a few people with white rings around the eyes asapose to the standard colour...how would i go about doing thiss or would i have to buy them like that? if so which ones cme with the white rings?

    Yes they are FK ones

    i want to get xenons and angel eyes...which 1 do u reccomend i get first?

    Will work in both and look fine but will be brighter in the standrad lights

    also fitting the angels? will i have to take the whole front bumper off? hard work?
    Yes you need to take the bumper and no its not hard

    Laastly ive seen a few people with white rings around the eyes asapose to the standard colour...how would i go about doing thiss or would i have to buy them like that? if so which ones come with the white rings?
    FK ones come with the yellow stype bumbs but you can fit white leds instead.

    Make sure you change the LEDs before you fit them to your car as changing them is a headlight out job as they are too fiddly to do whilst on the car :-)

    Its not 501s that you want, its something like 236's but will double check for you.

    Only problem with LED's is they hotspot badly, so you can see the individual LED's rather than a nice smooth circle.

    286 type bulbs

    Gotta agree on the hotspotting, I took my LED's out because it was so bad. Gonna try again soon to do something better

    I was close it's 286's that you want. Have a look at this, probably a bugger to fit, but should eliminate the hot spotting problem a bit.

    Haha, beaten. yeah I took mine out as well, as got fed up with it, but hate the yellow rings with nice HID bulbs lol.

    What do you think to these mate, 3 LED's in each hole. Be easier to fit than the double ones in the above link.
