angle eyes headlight

Hi All
I recently crashed my e39 and now I need to get both new headlights and I am having a bit of trouble finding a genuine used pair. New pair from the dealer are very expensive. (£623 + vat each)
However I can get a after market pair (halogen)for £160. Want I to know is that are these after market headlights any good. Has anyone bought a pair and what are they like.
Any feed back will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks you

Hi there,
I've bought these aftermarket headlights and..... NO!!!.... they might look a bit like the OEM but the light output is terrible, or you will have to retrofit it with BMW projectors.

Hi, There are a few genuine sets on ebay if you look hard enough, found a couple of genuine hella lights for £200-£300. Bit more money than after market ones but totally worth it!!

Hope it helps
