They look brand new, but as you took them all apart did you consider adding in angel eyes?

nah. too much of a faff as it means separating the headlight.
plus, I would have only gone with LED's not CCFL's as LED's are brighter. But then, one of the LED segments will randomly decide to burn out and you're left with a janky looking LED ring after you spent all that time faffing about. The effect would be a bit like this;

You still would, but it would bug the hell out of your OCD.
