If you are looking for an easy LED replacement, then check out the WeissLicht. These are plug and play LED bulbs that swap out the factory setup for a xenon white, true blue or red depending on what color you go for.

For the amount of work that goes into them, the pricing is more than fair.

As for individual angel eye kits, my favorite is the camaross305 HIDs.

If you're not looking to actually get into the headlight and do some serious work, and pay some serious cash as well, the best way to go is Angel iBright... Here are a few pictures:

The order goes in as:

1. OSS Setup
2. Lux Kit

Rdash and other versions that look like that is all wack, you can't see anything at all during the day, they are dim as heck, might as well stay stock.

Last I heard, they dont make Lux anymore? (or are they just being recalled?) either way, OSS all the way, but its $$$ (well worth it though)

Is it me or are the INNER rings WAY TOO BRIGHT (from looking through 8 pages of the HID Angel Eyes thread on E90post)???

I know OSS takes the spot, but isn't there a solid solution for less that doesn't blast light through the inner ring like these HID's??? From the pics it seems that the inner rings just BLEED light everywhere, no uniformity...

Might have to keep stock 2011 LCI Angel Eyes on my E92 until someone can help...

These look great Jurian, I'm assuming the product simply replaces the current bulbs in the housings?

Light seems to be spread evenly through both angel eyes - are these LED lights?

It is not to much at all, many people viewed our HID Angel's in action at BimmerFest and many where shocked by how much bluer, and how much the inner rings look in pictures.

Pictures can not match how these look in person.

2011 comes with super bright LEDs, no need to change them on your E92 2011.

Here's a diagram of the fiber path used in the e92 setup:



The inner lamp will always get a direct shot from the bulb (H8). However, the outer projector will always be weaker due to the travel path needed in the fiber lines to illuminate the ring. This is why the outer rings are always dimmer than the inner.

All the latest and greatest bulbs on the market will not correct this design. This HID kits are interesting as they use a very high color temperature, reducing the lumen output in order to illuminate the rings. Unfortunately - this gives a very blue color, which is not what we're looking for. Also - HIDs run at very high temperatures and these headlamps are by no means cheap to replace.


Things to expect with AiB-based setups:
- 5500-6000K temperature for a bright, white light.
- Easy 10-minute installation
- 100% Plug and Play, without the need for wire splicing, tapping or additional wire harnesses
- OEM-like integration
- Low heat output, unlike colored bulbs or HID kits

Here's our 1-series project that is in development:



There's no need to over-complicate a mod that should be relatively simple on the end-user's side.

I can confirm that the 2011 M3's DO NOT come with LED Angel Eyes - same ugly yellow rings as before... Looking at a MY2011 E92 as I write this from my BlackBerry!

Correct, MY11 still uses the fiber lines as the 08-10 models do.

Missed your question above, the AiB's are LED. Here's an install we performed last week on a MY11 ZCP M3:

would these angel eye's void the warranty for the headlights at all? That is what worries me about doing these mods.
