    Some company used to sell an aftermarket version of those for STSs, but I'm pretty sure they went out of business. I can't even find pics of them anymore.

    I think the led halo looks great. I saw a pic from some Russian site of an STS with custom angel eyes and I've been planning to do this to mine, Just want to make sure I use the correct kinds and materials before attempting it. Would you be able to help with a link of a site where you got yours? The mm size of the ring and etc?

    Halo's looks great......on a BMW.

    At any rate, you can get a retofit kit from retrofit source.

    Even if you get some cheap halo's, you're going to have to open the headlight which isn't exactly the easiest thing the first few go-arounds.

    Unless the Halo's come stock, its not worth the headache of replacing them a few times, during the time you own them. I heard many complaints about people opening their headlights more times than they wanted to, cus their halos stop working. Its not just plug-in and never have to worry about them. Plus, you need delicate hands and dont bump them hard. They do break easy. Also, the signal wont be a factor with the PO-PO's, as long they blink amber.

I'm pretty sure resealing them will fix the leak problem.
    Question, how did u get the lens off and back on?

    There's a thread covering the whole process. I think the 'Sticky Thread' at the top of the forum has a link to it.

    As I recall, it takes heat & patience to disassemble it. Good sealer & a steady hand make for a good refurb.

    Heat gun, a ton of time, and a ton of patience.
