Where to purchase LED Angel Eyes (Tekarbon?)

I have been looking all over the internet for a set of four LED angel eyes and I can't come across a single site that sells them. All I can find are CCFL rings or full headlight assemblies with angel eyes. I just need the angel eyes. I saw a set of LED angel eyes called tekarbon? but can't find them anywhere. If somebody could please shed some light on this that would be highly appreciated. thanks!

The Z4 headlight use permanent glue to attach the lens. The lens is typically cut off to install the LED rings, then the lenses are glue back on. It's not a typical DIY project.

I did some dual LED rings, check out this post.

Do you know what size the lenses are? I know the smaller ones are 70mm. What size did you use for the big one?

The access is the same as how you would replace a bulb. However, he also said the LED ring is held in by machining a groove in the stock AE assembly so there is some custom work that needs to be done.
