Default LED Headlight rings?

I saw some pictures that had rings of LEDs around them, what are they? and where can I get some green ones?

They are called "Angel Eyes". You can buy them on Ebay (among other places), but unless you are going to have them installed by a shop it will involve opening up your headlight (which can be a real pita unless you're good with those sort of projects).

Ya, it's not exactly impossible to do, it's just kind of a pain if you've not used to these sort of projects...

Besides opening up the headlight housing, the only real problem is finding a way to attach them to the reflectors since there really isn't anything circular like the angel eyes to glue it too (i.e. aftermarket angel eyes for BMW's actually attach to the top of the headlights and go circular with the actual headlight.)

and you might want to get the CCFL angel eyes instead of the led ones cuz CCFL halo rings are much brighter.

And remember that anything that you put inside the reflector will cause a reduction in the power of the headlamp beam.

The other common problem is that after opening up the headlight assembly and glueing it up again afterwards, a lot of people get condensation inside the headlamp.
