Very happy with the prompt shipping, price and dispatch of the P46s, not to mention the customer service umnitza provides; all excellent.
But now there are a few problems.


Problem #1:

In my original halogen headlights, I already had Predator Orion V2s installed. Now that I've taken them out of my halogen headlights, how do I install them into my P46s?
I've been told there are two main ways to do this...
i) involves breaking/snapping the clips off and gluing the Orion V2s on in place of the halogen angel eyes [which need to be removed, leaving a gap for the Orion V2s].
ii) involves taking out the stock halogen Angel Eye casing, cracking open the casing of the Orion V2s and then placing the LED circuit board into the halogen Angel Eye casing.

Now the problem is, I don't know which one to do. I really want to do ii) for a cleaner look, but I'm afraid of ruining my Orion V2s. What do you guys think I should do? If you know what I should do, can you please give me instructions.

Problem #2:
I don't know what the hell this cable is meant for? What am I meant to do with it? I've already chopped off the black/yellow cable for halogen setups, which I don't need, but what is this? Is this to power the halogen Angel Eyes?
I suggest calling Matt and asking him to get the best response. I think the wires you mentioned may be for your halogen angel eyes. Mine were CCFL, so those wires were not used in mine at all.

As to the retrofit, there is a DIY out there and someone else already posted the short way on how to do this. But again, I would ask Matt to be sure.

Good luck. Sorry for the cop-out reply here, but I think you should call him first to be sure.
