We have a kit that works for the facelift model, the facelift headlights can get a bit hairy because you have to bake them but they look clean.

    Lightbulb What kind Should i Get!

    I have also been debating on which angel eyes to buy as well!

    Im for sure going with the orion v2 LEDs but now im stuck in a PICKLE!!!

    Colors, temp, k's, shoot! Which one looks the best on a 2005 black 330ci
    the color scheme i have going on right now is the Stock bmw 6000k d2s's, orange/amber turn signals, and greenish yellow hid fog lights (3000k)

    Umnitza has the a couple different temps to choose from:

    Stock xenon color 4300k (Cost extra!?) why?
    standard 6000k (doesnt cost extra) why?
    Gold (cost extra!?) why?

    Which is the best?!

    Go with the 6000k, it's a pure white output and looks the most crisp out of all of the bulb temperatures.

    We make thousands of the standard 6000K. We make tens of each of the others Law of efficiency of production, the other LEDs cost us more because we buy fewer of them.

    To limit your choice, we have only 6000K and 4300K in immediate availability.

    I like 4300K better, 6000 looks too blue (ricey) to me
    If you say you have stock BMW HIDs then they are 4300K not 6000

    Orion V2 looks great. I have seen ricey LEDs and the Orions are not ricey. Believe me. They are also build solid. You can't go wrong..

    LED angel eyes look like poo on facelift coupes

    The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there."

    "Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

    ”They're” is a contraction of “they are.” “They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

    Extra Credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3"
    not "I'm looking for a M3".
