Installation overview of aurora Angel Eye kit on a 2003 BMW 325Ci.
We have seen lots of Angel Eye kits on the market in the past 5 years.
Everything from separate lightsources, CCFL tubes, failing inverters and
LED kits with gaps and warranty issues with vendors. What happens when you
can't find something for your BMW on the market that suits your needs?
You simply design them yourself.
Introducing aurora, an entirely redesigned angel eye kit for your BMW from

aurora produces a fully uniform look using a 60 LED array, which matches
most Xenon maps for an OEM look and are very bright - these can even be
seen in daytime. You will immediately know another vehicle with a set after
yours are installed.

BMW M3 E46 Roll-over crash in Nürburgring VLN race
More action here: http://goo.gl/SW5sCC
I pull the trusty pocketcam out just as the first few drops of rain fall on
Wehrseifen. An E46 driver loses control on the entry to the corner, and
ends up rolling all the way around. Race was the VLN #2 of 2012 and this
was only the second lap of a four-hour event!
