CCFL vs SMD

Recommended Posts

Looking at purchasing Angel Eyes and I've noticed a few comments on either CCFL or SMD lights

I've heard some people say that CCFL's look better in the dark but SMD during the day, but which is better?

Also do these fit a facelift coupe?

I think 'better' depends on personal preference, i have ccfls as i prefer the constant beam of light and the subtle look they give off but for the look of the LED or SMD and the reliability i would probably go for them next.

I'd go for the CCFL's as they look most like the angel eyes fitted to the e39.

No segments and you can have a warmer colour temp.

But I think it comes down to what you like really

Ccfl look better but you need to buy 2 kits as I can guarantee you will end up replacing bits constantly

Led are fit and forget option

Same as above. When I bought mine..the transformer was faulty..or is it the ballast. Either way I made sure I bought two set!

I went with LED as my headlights are stuck together with resin, took the best part of 4-5 hours to install so didn't want to have to replace.
