Depo v1 uses normal bulbs for the angel eyes, easy to replace just like the factory bulbs.
Depo v2 uses an integrated LED ring, the colour can't be modified without splitting the headlight and either individually de-soldering the LEDs to replace them with your chosen colour, or replacing the entire ring.

Not 100% sure on how to tell the difference between versions 1 and 2 other than the angel eyes being LED in 2!

If its already led angel eyes i'm happy but bow im scared if halo ring dies i can throw headlight in Garbage cause I don't know how to split a headlight and no one in my town does 馃槄 so i guess if angel eyes dies im out of luck

If they work now I鈥檇 leave them alone for sure. But if they break later, it鈥檚 worth a try fixing it.

You could always buy a cheap headlight to practice on by following guides online - standard E8x halogen lights are only around 拢10 from a scrapyard/breaker in the UK, no idea about where you are!
