Well, i had a couple of teething troubles trying to get them to work at first but they're up and running now... At last! [:D]

Apologies if the pictures don't seem clear enough, but my digicam doesn't seem to like taking photos in the dark, even with night mode on!

Let me know what you think anyway! [:p]

Looks good mate the fifth pic looks the best imo, how much did it cost?? was it an easy diy??

Sonny
It wasn't a DIY job Sonny, they're the Angel Eyes from a group buy a few months ago, but only just got round to fitting them now. They're actually just plug and play units, however when you get them the LED's that come with them are yellow like the BM's but i changed them for white bulbs which give this somewhat more distinctive look! [:D]

Ye i never meant did you modify the original lamp i meant was it easy to fit them yourself. as you said they're plug and play units. so how much do they cost because im looking for some in the future when i have some more money saved up. lol.

Sorry Sonny, a bit of a misunderstanding on my part there i think, i thought you meant did i crack them open and modify them myself? (oops!) [:$]

When i bought them in the group buy they were ?150 + ?10 P+P and available in either chrome (like mine) or a black backed version and i have to say they are the dogs!! [H]

You may also want to get some of the bulbs i used to give the same purple/white effect to them as opposed to the standard yellow ones they come with!

Oh, and you will need TWO pairs of H7 bulbs instead of just one for these Angel Eyes!

Here is the link to the LED bulbs you will need. There are 10 in a set so you will need to buy 2 sets!

If you use the bulbs they come with they'll look like this! [:(]

But if you get the ones i have it'll look like this! [H]

So PM Rich (R1GTI) and see if he can hook you up with a set! [;)] You'll love 'em! [:D][H]

They are equivalent to sidelights

they look good mate. i did the same with my angel eyes and changed the LED's in them to the whiter ones. Pain in the ass wasnt it?!! Be carefull though, as i found that after changing the leds that they kept popping out of their sockets ALL the time. I got that fed up with takeing my bumper off everytime to plug them back in that ive changed my angel eyes for OEM Anni lights.

Sorry Paul, i just wanted to get the topic posted and i was in a bit of a rush to do it before i went out. My apologies again, i'll ask next time!! [:$][;)]

But to be honest guys, i haven't experienced ANY problems with the beam angle, amount of light output, LED's popping out or anything as yet (touch wood!) They've been fantastic! [:p]

I spend most of the time with just the sidelights on and i can still see where i'm going, and even with the full beam on i haven't had anyone flash me yet so the angle must be fine!! [H]

I have had a few little niggles with mine, as firstly I didn't buy
enough H7 bulbs, secondly I didn't switch the lever adjustment to RHD,
and thirdly, I drove around with the beam pointing too high and then
too low until I managed to find the time to pop down the local garage
and get them lined up properly.

They have been fine ever since though.

there are 6 leds in each large ring section and 4 in each smaller ring section. So you need 20 leds.
Have you got the FK Angel Eyes? From what I remember from looking
at the lights when installing them, I'm fairly sure there was only one
light source per ring???
