Here is the breakdown for that lighting setup:

Predator Chromiums-$199

ProLumen HID Fog Light Kit-$260

Piccolo HID Fog Light Kit-$149

The difference between the Piccolo and ProLumen is the ProLumen is backed by a lifetime warranty, piccolo only a 2 year.

Yes, I bought them from Nick at Jlevi, But the projector fogs are completely custom, which will run u anyway from 100-250 depending on what projectors you use and where you buy it all from.

Looks sweet. Would the Chromium 8000k look better than the 6k on the full setup above? ^^ Any comparison pics with same setup but with 6k vs 8k?

8000k is blue, and you lose a considerable amount of light output compared to stock/OEM 4300k. There good for fogs, but not a full setup. With Angels they look good too, but only if your car is white & some other select colors. Also, theres no "better" or worse. Just personal preferences

Man, my angels have been taking a hit recently on starting up, from just barely cold weather. They start up, but they start like a really dull color, then take about a full minute to brighten and get to there normal 6000k color. It has just started getting a bit colder here, lowest about 47 at night. I cant imagine whats gonna happen when it starts getting really cold here.

these don't look that great, especially since there are visible gaps on the bottom of each ring. It cheapens the "eye" effect tremendously

^ it's cause he's supposed to have the gaps on top. so that you don't see the gaps. also, it's normal. all angel eyes have a visible gap.

here's a picture, but it's not and e46, and no where in the title did it say e46 only lol

CA-Automotive is a retailer of Umnitza Predator Chromium - tell them you need Standard and you'll be set.
