The so-called "angel eyes" headlights first appeared in BMW cars and to be more accurate – in the facelift version of the fifth series E39 in 2001 as a special type of lamps with distinctive figuration. The light element does not remain indifferent to people who care for the look of their car and in very short time they became extremely popular.
What are the angel eyes?
Broadly speaking, these are illuminated rings bent in the shape of the headlights, giving predatory "look" of the car, which is actually the attractiveness of these elements. They have long been a prerogative only for BMW owners, but now you can see them in other car models.
However, there is one "but" - this tuning element is suitable for circular headlights, which is a distinguished characteristic of BMW, otherwise they lose their meaning. "Angel eyes" can now independently be constructed at home, but nothing can compare to the factory versions that are perfectly produced.
Types of angel eyes:
Overall, the types are divided into CCFL or SMD (LED). In the first one, the light is produced by the reaction of a specific gas with electricity. In the second one, the light glow of rings is reproduced by tiny LEDs.
The second option is the more perfect solution firstly, because it is more durable and secondly, because it does not require the use of special power supply block but it draws power directly from the standard installation of the car.
Here are some advantages of SMD decisions over the CCFL:
- Bigger durability;
- Lower power consumption;
- The light is saturated and brighter (if the product is of a high quality);
- The light is distributed evenly over the entire surface of the ring (if all LEDs are in working condition);
- The range of operating temperature is large and varies from -40 ° C to + 100 ° C.
What do their colors depend on?
There is a variety of color options (yellow, green, orange, purple, white) and they depend entirely on light sources inside the ring. There are also some with the option to change colors without replacing the rings themselves. The effect is achieved through the use of RGB LEDs with three color crystals switching through a special key.
