Angel Eyes Question

Someone is selling a set of Orion V2's and I'm wondering is there a difference between angel eyes for a prefacelift/facelift sedan/coupe? He said he was told they will fit any e46. I don't want to get them then have them not fit.

I think they all fit it's just how you have take your headlight lens apart, if you have a facelift you apparently have to put the headlight in the oven (from what I've read) crazy ****

Ye my buddy did thiz on his subie. Put the entire headlight in the oven on 200f. For 5-10 min. Its heals up the sealant enough that u can seperate it. My buddy took out the orange turn signal pieces. Then put the headlight back together, add a little bit of silicone if u need to, put it back in the oven. Take it out. Squeeze the headlight together and hols for 10-15seconds. Then sit it aside for 20 minor so until it cools.

Prefacelift/Facelift 4door sedan angel eyes should fit a prefacelift/facelifted coupe.

but prefacelift/facelift 4door sedan angel eyes would not fit a facelifted coupe (facelifted coupe headlights need to be baked in order to take the lens apart)

1 kit fits all models except the 2004-2006 facelifted coupe/convertible.
If your kit looks like a horseshoe, it's ok. Otherwise, it's not.

One thing to consider, warranty for the kit is non-transferrable. If you get a used Orion V2 kit, there is no lifetime warranty associated with it.

no plans, 4300K or 6000K.
If you want a more pure white, the V2.5 will suit you best.

I have a facelift coupe and you do have to take your light out to bake, before you seal it up make sure to test your lights to make sure they work. It's a beach to fix if you have finished sealing them back up
