What do you think of Angel Eye headlamps?

Personally I don't care too much for colored headlamps(Blue Pink Green Etc). But I like the angel eye headlamp conversions. Anyways, I saw everyones oppinion on neon, what do you think of angel eyes?

Colored headlights in Oregon are illegal.

Spearmint lights are my favorite they're like a white with just a tiny tinge of blue.

I'd love a set of angel eyes on my 6er, but the little make-it-yourself setup looks a bit too cheezy for me.

Sounds like an opinion with no back up to me. Maybe you could elaborate on this "looks a bit too cheezy for me" statement.

Sorry, just trying to fit in with this site better...

But, no problem.

The make it yourself "kit" on the internet uses clear hexagonal rods which are cut with a knife/hacksaw with little slices, then heated and bent around in a circle, with basically black electrical tape holding a small lamp aiming at one end of the rod. The light goes around the rod, bouncing off the little cuts to make it glow. Close inspection of it would show the little cuts, and if they aren't perfectly even and clean, will be visibly imperfect. The tape solution around the bulb area would also be visinble, and if used around the uncovered headlight of an early 6, like mine, would get weathered and the tape would fail fairly rapidly, which would look even more tacky. Add to that the limited amount of room to mount said external ring inside teh headlight eyebrow on an early 6 (or any other non covered headlight) and some sort of very clunky bracketry would have to be fabricated (simply glueing it would not allow easy headlight replacement).

So, since it isn't a bolt on kit using quality parts, it looks a little cheesy. And making that particular solution NON cheesy would not be a productive use of time in comparison to the end result.

Your turn.

Copy and paste? There was no copy and paste involved. It was typed directly as a response to your statement.

No, I don't get the whole "copy and paste" thing, or how it related to this thread and your response to my post.

"English, mother%$#^! Do you speak it?"
