Best plug and play angel eyes upgrade?

Looking to get rid of the yellow angel eyes on my car but I'm not wanting to cut into the headlights. What are the best options nowadays?

I just threw in white LED bulbs to replace the yellow ones. H11 I think it the connector type.

running a regulated HID kit. No yellowing of the rings. Best option IMO. Some on here say too bright and a little glare, but they are the only ones bright enough to be seen well in the daylight and I've tried all the high powered LED drop ins.

Interested to understand more about the kit. Can you provide details? While the umnitza are bright they aren't bright enough imho.

Cheers,
Matt

It was a kit some guy out in Cali I believe made. I honestly wouldn't recommend him bc the first kit the resisitors got too hot and melted the protective sheathing off and he would not stand behind his product at all. I ended up buying another one of his kits second hand on here and they seem to be doing ok (knock on wood). If you search my post history you could probably find the details...it's been a while

mine is LCI by the way. No version of LED did it for me....didn't matter if it was advertised at 50w, 70w 10000w...they all got drowned out by the sun. HID 5000k(kelvin)was the closest to OEM looking during the day

Depends LCI or not... For LCI, LUX angel eye LED's are the best looking and color angel eyes imho.

I looked LUX up and decided that they are probably the best option for me so I went ahead and ordered the LUX H8 180's. Thanks for the info!
