    Default Angel eyes.

    After much deliberation I've decided to get some angel eyes. Can anyone tell me if there's any difference in the 4 on this ebay page, and which would be the better choice. http://shop.ebay.co.uk/?_from=R40&_t...All-Categories I'm assuming people swap the sidelight leds for mtec 501's am I right, and how many are in them?

    Also while I'm at it I might aswell get some HIDs and fit them before swapping the headlights. I just want to be able to see better, I don't want anything with a blue light. Any recommendations? Thx Col.

    I think they are all made by the same company BadBack, I have been looking at these too, a company in Swindon do them too, search ultimate lighting although one of those links maybe them. I am wiring LED side lights to the illumination circuit so no errors, spoke to an MOT tester last week about wiring side lights into a permanent ingnition live so they are on all the time but it would be a failure as they wouldnt work off the switch so illumination is the way to got to avoid errors IMO HTH...

    Thx mate, so there's no real difference only the price? My wiring skills are fast failing me, so I don't think I'll attempt to wire leds in, as you are. Do you know how many sidelight bulbs are in them? I'm assuming 2 each.

    Think you'll find there are 4 but someone will correct me if I'm wrong, found these at 1.2w so all 4 would be 4.8w whereas standard bulbs are 5w so you may get away with no errors imo, not 100% but seems feasible to me...

    I guessed at 2 each side, and my Mtec 501's have just arrived as we speak. So I'll order another 2 sets. I'm not keen on trying anymore leds, the strobing does my head in, and I've yet to see any that don't.
