btw, how do you get rid of angel eye glares from camera shots?
i tried to take a couple pictures and i would see angel eye glares like on my car.
Very hard if they're on especially with a dark car like yours. But you can do it:

kelvin, do you have your angel eyes connected to your remote? so when you unlock the car, the lights turn on? if you do, say the camera exposure is 10 seconds, at about 7-8 seconds, unlock the car so the angels go on, and you'll be fine. lol
