Two questions... you've only got smoke corners for our facelifted e46? and i've looked and looked, but trying to find a photograph of V2 4300 with the xenons turned on to see the contrast. Maybe no one does this

See picture below, considering leaving my amber corners because of the new NY state amber plates, i kind of like the look. I'm worried the 6000k will contrast way too much.

I appreciate the pics of the 4300K was just curious to see them with the Xenon lights on as well. Thanks for the help by the way, the main reason I'll only consider Umnitza now for my lights.

Which kit is that, and what does it mean to wire it to your fogs?

Umnitza, I'm looking at Orion v2's but you don't list the 2005 vert on the list of models? Do you have them?

I just finished installing the Umnitza Orion Predator V2 Multi Color angel lights so here's a few pics! I'm going to post some more when I figure out the best settings on my DSLR camera.

Hooks up to you accessory wire in the engine bay compartment

When you unlock the car they fade on and they stay on while the car is working and than they fade out when you lock the car

Read read search read read than do it
There a DIY's on this forum that covers points a-z although yours maybe the ones that have to be in the oven at 150 degrees for 10 minutes than all it is is just snapping on the rings and the wires
Again just search and read till your hands start to do the work before your head

Looks good. Why not just get some different color bulbs for the fogs and let it eat?

The only problem is trying not to get pulled over lol. I've been pulled over a few times because my lights were too blue or the amber color was too red. The white lock out color looks purple ish or green ish from far away because all the LEDs are on to make white and it's a good enough reason to be pulled over for it.
