Hi fellas I am currently in the market for angel eyes for my BA. I have a genuine typhoon body kit so I will require the xr looking headlights.
I have notticed a few different brands going around on ebay just wondering if anyone can recommend one over the other? I am not fussed about price. I am after something which is good quality (something like the european cars)

Thanks in advance

All the aftermarket headlights with angel eyes are pretty much the same quality. Crap and crapper.
They work, but overall quality comparing to OEM they are miles apart.

Looking for euro quality from the after market is about as likely as meeting Peter Pan.

Yeah, OEM is better than aftermarket.

The three main manufacturers of after market headlights are DEPO, Sonar, and TYC.
From what I have seen, none of them have an edge over the other.

They will work. They just wont be as good as factory.
You're never going to get the quality you want from them, so you might as well pick one of those three brands and buy some.

If you're worried about light output, I could retrofit them with HID projectors for you.

Thanks buddy. I might take you up on that offer! As I definately want to fit HID's.

I think I may go with the TYC ones.
