Might be getting some Angel eyes

Hey guys, I think am getting angel eyes Very Happy , now I can start the long and tidious "shopping" around process. And my times spent on forums, it appears that ZKW's with DDE are THE BEST (correct me if I am wrong). So far, this is what I have found:

ZKW with DDE

Was wondering if any of ya who have bought angel eyeys before could give me some pointers...


For Example, is their a big diff. between regular xenon and DDE??

Zkw's are the best no question. However, you can get these for 100 bucks cheaper at umnitza.com and that jsleviw.com or whatever it is. If you're going to spend the money, make sure you get ZKW's!

But, what is the main diff between DDE and regular Xenon? Like can I can Xenon with Angel eyes without it being DDE?

yeah, HID/Xenon is really nice to have and would look killer (delmarco on werkz has HID), but the projector lenses already help so much and if you throw in some Sylvania Silverstars they will look really good.

DDE is just the angel eyes themselves, don't actually improve any kind of driving quality, just look SICK

I'd say as of now am about 70-80% sure I'll be getting those, and I'll put in the same kind of lights I have on mine that give the same exact color as do xenons, so it would pretty much look and give just aobut as much light as actual xenons would...

But, how are DEPOs?

Light output would not be the same as xenons. nor would you be able to attain that true xenon look with just projector headlights and silverstar bulbs. But don't get me wrong, for the money, its pretty damn good!

Keep in mind, the higher the kelvin rating, the more color (blueish and even purplish tint), but the less light. Lower kelvin ratings have yellow'ish light, but it's brighter and easier to see with.

Yeah, I have mine wired for that with the parking light delete. So for my switch, there's 3 options:

Position 0 - Off (nothing on)
Position 1 - Parking Lights (only angel eyes on, great for around dusk)
Position 2 - On (hids and angel eyes on, still no parking lights)

It's great. I have DDE, so they're visible in the daytime.... so whenever I get in the car, the first thing I do is turn it to position 1. I never have them off. I love it.
