p46 Upgrade

After seeing pictures of cars with p46's installed and shopping around online, I've decided that I want to upgrade my 328i from halogens to p46's. I found this picture in another thread, which is exactly the look I'm looking for:



Can someone help me out as to what I need to purchase to get that look, such as 4500k, 5000k, what kind of bulbs, angel eyes, etc.? I'm pretty new to this stuff, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

That is a 6000k setup with 6000k HIDs, 6000k halos and 6000k HID fogs. You can purchase the 6000k color temperature headlights through our site, the halos are automatically a pure 6000k xenon so just select the CCFL Angel Eye option:

You can see proof of this back in 2004+ = which means, that not only did we originate the idea, we also technically own the name. If others will name them Projectors for the E46, that will be more accurate.

And there are many many many more.

Orion V2 which is the brightest available.
Our product is not the same as the others, so I suppose it's worth noting that unlike everyone else that jumps into these threads, we will provide you with something different, a better value, and in our opinion a better more integrated lighting solution. Others will sell you parts, ours will all have the same colors, ease of use, and most importantly they will be the best value. All color choices below were the choices of the customers and how THEY wanted it to look.

So, if you'd like your car to look like this from the front:





Or this from the rear 3/4 and sides:


Or this from the side (note dark side markers and grill not applicable unless you have an M3).


Here are some very prominent cars that have had our parts installed:





Some customer comments:
For 5+ years, we've led innovation on angel eyes and continued to support these products and improve upon existing technology of the day. Predator Orion V2 continues our innovation standard. And, yes, our product does do the talking:

They were so bright and looked so good that I had to place an order for version two and replace the Chromium lights I had

I also have seen the V1 in person and the V2 is possibly 50% brighter, its that good.

This is one of the cheapest mod and it truly only take 45 mins and i am an amateur..

I like the way they are thicker and feel less fragile. Installation was a breeze.
I highly recommend these bad boys!
Thanks Matt

So, instead of saddling you with bunches of links to products that all look the same on the screen, give us a call when you decide on the look of your car.
