I doubt that water is getting into your headlights because in the back of them, they have a weather resistant rubber grommet that protects everything. It could honestly be anything so I hope someone else could chime in since these lights could be complicated. If you do tear down your lights and have to replace a projector, I suggest doing a clear lens retrofit because that would improve your lights so much. If it is retrofitted then check your harness because the relays could be bad. flickering on warm up is normal (for retrofitted xenons) so it may be something you might have to live with. I had this problem with me older car and it had a tiny battery so I had to replace the alternator because it needed a lot of power. So yea check your relay harness!


that adjusts your projector level
I dont think its ever auto adjusted in my ownership (purchased in september) so maybe not the weather but my angel eyes deffienetly dont turn on when I unlock the car like they usually do only because its cold. How do I find the relay? I searched but couldent find anybody talking about their locations and what they look like and being very new to this I have no clue where they could be. And I got a picture when I came in of the loose connection Click image for larger version

Any clue where this belongs? I think it could be my problem unless this is for the headlight washers.

Wow, I really like the chrome ones. But the 6k type lights are pretty high on price.

Hi , I've looked through this thread and I can't seem to find anything on fitting angel eyes to a prefacelift sedan with after market projectors fitted. My lights were halogen and terrible. My high and low beam shrouds are 146mm wide. I cannot seem to find angel eyes in the configuration. Does anyone know where I can purchase some?

I have a preface sedan with aftermarket projectors. Get the angel eyes from umnitza. That's where I got mine and they work brilliantly.

I think there's an option to specify exactly which ones you need. Just check it out

Before you buy a set of angel eyes, ask your vendor if their angel eyes will stand up to this (Umnitza Orion V4 E60 Install):

Slowly working my way through this thread, but haven't seen exactly what I'm looking for yet.

Anyone have V2's 4300k, oem halogens, amber corners?
