HID Angel eyes!!! Now out! Brighter than anything!! LED etc.

Well Ive been developing an HID angel eye kit for the e92. I had a circuit built that will Retain all factory features. i.e you will be able to leave your lights on auto getting in an out of the car. This circuit even with me getting it built overseas will cost 75$ alone I know you can kinda rig and HID to work by tapping into the ECU but it throws error codes and puts your car into limp etc. My kit is just plug and play . No cutting of any factory wires, etc. Just plug in the circuit to one of the exsisting light sockets for the angel eyes and hook up a relay etc. I will provide a Full DIY to install. It is very easy and maybe 45 min tops for someone who is very slow or is unfamiliar with the install.


I have a few members that are on here and have my beta kits on their cars. Im sure you have seen the 360 forged M3 and the angel eye kit on that. Ive also done one on my car and and a friend of mine on here his member name is "JEMarsal". This kit produces zero error codes. It also still keeps the approach feature so when you unlock your car and approach the HID halo's will turn on just like stock. These are super bright and can be seen perfect even in broad daylight. You can still control them through your i-drive and turn them on and off at your leisure. I will be putting them up for sale in the vendor section for 229$ a kit. This is about what it cost me to build a kit. I will probly do this for the first 20 kits or so.

Here are some pics of what the kits look like. The silver car has a 8k bulb and the 360 forged m3 has 24k bulbs. I will get some pictures of my car soon which i put 4300k to match the stock headlights. I will be able to get them in any color when you place your order.


Here is a link if your interested http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=190118.

If not enjoy the pics!!

Sounds interesting. How do they compare in brightness during the day to stock, or even to GP thunders?

The top 2 pics are in mid-day with hardly a cloud in the sky! They are wayyyy brighter than stock bulbs. At nights i can practically just use my halo's and use them as headlights

They look great.......very inovative!

That being said I feel that peice is kind of steep seeing as these are a home made kit and as far as I know your doing these out of your house.

Do they have any type of warranty?

The cicuit and relay are made by a well renowned electrical company and the hid kit is a high quality one made by the same company who manufactures hella hid's. So everything is top notch. I just designed the cicuit and sent them the schematics to build me the circuits.

There is a 3 year warranty on the HID's but i dont know about the circuit. Ill find out

Actually germany. I found a guy in the states that would do it for 120$. But i would have to charge like 60$ more for the kit. I probrobly could of found some small place or mom and pop shop to do it in the states if i looked around more but i couldn't find anyone for cheap enough if the states if i would of called around alot more but who knows how long it would take. My dad was in germany for the holiday, he works for siemens, and was over there and found this electronic manufacturer. I emailed him my schematic and he gave it to them and they said no prob .

Do you have pictures with the hood open so it's possible to see where you have mounted the ballast?
