Angel Eyes Installation

Anyone know how to install the angel eyes or know of any shops around here that would install them?

I know there are youtube videos of this but I am not a handy person and stay away from those things...

Any recommendations from locals on which angel eyes are the best?

I have installed alpine hid's (what I have now) and regular halogens without any problems and would be happy to help install for you.

I like my alpine's (very bright, but outer rings relatively slightly dimmer) but would probably go with Lux if I had to do over again. You are also welcome to check out the alpine's in person if you want.

What kind did you get? If its Lux or any other plug and play type, you change it like any other light bulb

if it's the ibright, check out the DIY thread, EAS posted the thread and others added with tips (the type of pliers you need, etc.)

I almost bought one last week, but decided to go with another mod instead. Otherwise, we can do it together.

I might still do this, if I buy it, I'll come over to your house and work on it with you, if you'd like... I work on mine as you work on yours.

I'm just negoitiating for a good deal on the lights right now, so it might not work out.

yes, the installation is very very simple. I was scared until skins333 and novablkm3 did mine. Now, i can do it without any help. The video can help you as well as members here. Really shouldn't take more than 15 minutes at all.

nahh. you don't want to buy what i bought. The lights went out within 3 months of installation. So i went back to one OEM and one non-OEM.

I would go with Alpine that Skins333 has and it really is the best in business.

Sure, i can help install. All you got to do is drop by my place and i can help install within minutes.

Thanks UTZ!

Installing Lux is like installing a typical light bulb. Straight plug-and-play and hopefully you have little hands

i just took my lux out a few days ago
one went bad so i put back the oem bulbs
and refit the lux when i got the repalcement
its very easy to fit them
just make sure none of the wires touch the heatsink on the back of the LED
i just prefer to keep wires away from hot metal objects
