anyone wanna split the cost of two different LED kits? I would like to have a slightly dimmer or off-color ring in each head light. The brighter one for the xenons. Anyone consider this before?

Ideally I would like more to have 1 smaller ring like the new BMW cars ... but all the kits for e46 seem to be the exact same size.

Thoughts / ideas?

(Inspiration is the newer bmw cars

If you'll notice, the shadow on the ground to the left of the car indicates that the sun was shining from the right, which would illuminate the right half of the hood more than the left.

To everyone else: I'd watch out for users who post comments off the cuff, perhaps deceptive or slanderous, without knowing what they're talking about.

In my long quest to find the best angel eyes, I will search no further after installing the Umnitza Orion V2s. They are awesome. I've compared the V2s with competitive products both in, and out, of the car, and I can vouch for the superior quality of the V2s.

Don't get me wrong, Pswirley, I'm not 100% loyal to Umnitza - I've shopped DDM for other things, like my Apexcone Slim HID 35W 6000K kit for my fogs (pictured). They were a great deal, look great, and work great, except for how both ballasts don't fire all the time upon startup and only 1 light turns on, forcing me to toggle my fog light switch until both ballasts fire. Other than that, they're great. I guess you get what you pay for.

When it comes to angel eyes, look no further than Umnitza's Orion V2s.

The Orion V2s look great, best out there. Go with the V2s.
