ANGEL EYES 325i 2004
 
Hi, I would like to install angel eyes on my 325i 2004 4 doors.. I read a lot of forum that says that LED are better than CCFL. But I want to know which brand is better. I heard of V2 orion, Umnitza etc.. So can you help me to get the best angel eyes I want it to be really bright and white.. I'm living in canada so sometimes the temperature goes to -20, -25 degrees :(

These angel eyes look stupid.

The most popular angel eyes by far are the Umnitza Orion V2. They are simple to install, especially on a sedan.

No experience with them. I usually hear people specifically recommend Umnitza over Koalty though.

opaque will "blend" the LEDs together so you can't really see the individual lights. The clears will allow the individual LEDs to be visible. I prefer the opaque look. It looks more like the angel eyes that actually come with BMWs.

See that search button? You should investigate what it does.

Have you considered the CityVision LED angel eye upgrades for your car?

Cityvisions feature 66 individual leds per ring and use SMD LEDs which are 3x brighter than the standard LED. Best of all, there are no error codes. Here are some of our customers rocking the Cityvision LED angel eye upgrades:

CCFL is kind of older technology, so I would say go with the LEDs!

Hope that helps!

You can get the Orion V2 opaque for the Orion V2 price now. You can't get anything better on the market now.

Is there a big difference of orion v2 opaque and the non-opaque?

UmnitzaSupport 12-15-2012 12:00 AM

not gigantic one has a frosty cover (opaque) the other is clear.
but they both light up the same.

Those are LED?

Amazing, it doesn't have that stupid bedazzled look.

They look great.

if you want cheap - get the Orion Lite - same as the other vendor's lights.
orion V2 is the tried and true
and Orion V4 is the best in the business.

I can 2nd the V4's. You pay a little extra for them, but they're top notch. I get comments on mine all the time. Always a positive reaction :-)

Thanks guys, finally I ordered orion v2 opaque! Cant wait to receive them, I'll post pics when I'll have them installed :-)

I see a couple options for my 2004 E46 coupe. I see the V2 regular and the V2 multicolor. Do you have any V2 opaque for the 2004+ coupes? I don't like seeing the individual LEDs when they are on.
