I'm gonna call them and tell them they fit like **** lol, if this is for sure the correct kit for a pre-face coupe, I won't ever put V2s on my car...

Plus, why the hell would Umnitza sell something that the buyer has to modify to fit??? Somethings not right... Where is UmnitazSupport when you need him.

btw the clips have notches try pulling the ring out more so it doesnt look as sunken in.

Not blaming you man. Like I said it's not a problem. I'll sell them.


I just want you to see what I am talking about... They OBVIOUSLY do not fit as well as others. If you don't see that, get your eyes checked

I believe this is correct... The size for the face-lift model is smaller than the preface and m3

Johnwhite- Maybe Umnitza sent YOU the wrong part to begin with man..

Those aren't even V2's. Take a moment before comparing apples to oranges

lol you guys are missing the point! They fit like crap!

How does THIS PICTURE, which is right from umnitza's orion V2 page, even compare to the picture of my AE fitment?(second pic)
Look how the ring in the first pic almost dips BELOW the shroud, as in my picture is about a 1/2 inch ABOVE the shroud. Come on guys, it's incredibly OBVIOUS how bad these fit

You don't have to get your panties in a bunch man, you obviously don't want to agree with me that they fit poorly, even though is COMPLETELY obvious that they do fit like crap, or are in fact the wrong part.

Let me dumb it down for you...

How are these NOT different AEs

First picture: picture of Orion V2 from Umnitza's site

Second picture: picture of my poorly fitting Orion v2 AE

Is it REALLY that hard to tell the difference?
