Upgrading your Halo Rings, Corona Rings or Angel Eyes

Posted by David on

Introduced to the automotive market in 2000 by BMW, Halo Rings, also known as Corona Rings or Angel Eyes, consist of a circular arrangement of lights or luminous rings inside the vehicle's headlight assembly.

As automotive lighting technology has evolved over the years, headlights have progressed to provide both high intensity lighting and key aesthetics that serve to customize the overall appearance of a vehicle.

In the 1980s, the fabrication of composite headlights became mainstream, however, the cumbersome assemblies using parabolic reflectors, restricted the abilty to create more intricate designs. A decline in the use of projector bulbs in the 2000s allowed automakers to create more innovative headlamp designs, including halo rings.

The first instance of Halo equipped headlights were conceived and put into service on the 2001 BMW 5 Series. This innovation was picked up by Car and Driver and was featured on their 10Best List, describing Halos as a breakthrough - serving both as daytime running lights and as a novel aesthetic that gave a sharp stance to the vehicle's front end.

Originally, Halos were powered by halogen bulbs, using a fiber optic system to distribute the light along the ring channel. BMW utimately upgraded this method by the use of ultra-bright LEDs. With this advent, the opportunity to offer brighter, cleaner looking illumination became available, along with new color options.

Contemporary BMW-designed halos are an integral part of the BMW bi-xenon headlight system, and for a time, was a signature component that truly distinguished BMW vehicles on the road. This inimitable innovation would not remain exclusively in the hands of BMW forever; the concept of Halo headlights was soon appropriated by other automakers and incorporated into their own designs, touting the addition of Halo rings to their vehicles as a "premium appearance."

Why is brightness so important?

The primary, and simplest reason is to maintain a level of brightness that can be seen both at night and during the day. LED based halo rings are best for day/night visibility and as far as durability is concerned, LED based systems are both rugged and compact and surpass the more vulnerable CCFL options. The light output for our White Halo Rings is 6,000K cool white, producing a bright, clean appearance.
