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.
