Hello, this is my first post on this forum, so forgive me if this is posted in the wrong place.

I have a 2004 530i, my stock yellow angel eyes have burned out. I am looking to replace them with ones that are bright white and show in the daylight. I have searched around on this forum and seen that there are e60's with these angel eyes, however I could not find details on what to get, how to install, or even where to go. Could someone please explain to me the process of getting the super bright angel eyes that are on during day time ?(2004 530i angel eyes are not on during day time.. only the interior headlights are, which are so ugly)

I also want to exchange my side turn markers to ones that are LED, could someone provide me with lights that would do this?

I'm a very big noob to modifying my car, these will be my first modifications.. any help will be GREATLY appreciated.

PS. I live in Windsor, Ontario, right across the border from Detroit.

There's nothing much you can do on your pre-lci AEs unless you do Orion. Check out Trinity or PM Trinity Autosport when you have 5+ posts.

for pre-LCI you have options such as the mtec 2.1 ( http://forums.5series.net/topic/8484...in-the-market/ ) or trinity's 5w LED ( http://forums.5series.net/topic/1151...-pre-lci-e60s/ ). the best looking and the most expensive is the orion v2 mod ( http://forums.5series.net/topic/1148...4#entry1358394 )

The orion v2 mod looks beautiful, but obviously that one requires professional work?? while the mtec 2.1 and trinity 5W are plug and play? I am not sure that's why I'm asking. Also which are brighter between mtec2.1 and trinity 5W?

NeRwEEzy, I am looking for side turn markers that blink LED white, do you carry those? The website doesn't indicate what color they blink.

Mtec 2.1 is old, there's Mtec v3 now which uses 6W Cree LEDs. If you are looking for plug and play, I would recommend that.

Hey, Simon is it? I was told to contact you about the Orion v2 mod in another post. I would love to do them but I cannot come out to California, neither can I ship you my headlights because I only have one car. Do you know how else I can have this done? Is there a place or someone that you know of that is near Detroit, MI?

And about the Mtech V3, where can I see pictures?

Thanks a lot!
