Angel light fitment on E46 coupe

so I searched around and from my understanding the Angel light kit that I linked below should fit a 2001 325ci Xenon Headlight, correct?

http://www.amazon.com/THG-3-Series-1.../dp/B00DM10K40

I do realize this question has been asked a lot but I wouldn't want to buy the wrong kit. Thanks

Don't go with cheap kilts like that. if you're on a budget get Umnitza Orion Lites or if you want the best get the Umnitza Orion V2.

It's not about fitting, anything can fit. QUALITY is the concern. Those amazon ones are CCFL which tend to fail quickly or even catch fire (yes it's happened). LED angel eyes are brighter and simpler to install.

I'm looking at replacing my failed set of Angel eyes.
Slight thread Jack.

Anyway to tell what brand they are?

Anyone have experience with these?

Go with Umnitza. /thread

Like everyone has said here you will save yourself time, effort, and money in the end. It's is all plug and play and the fitment is on point. It is on of a few if not the only company that actually comes with a proper wiring harness as well. When I ordered mine they forgot to send me mine and they shipped a new one out the next day for me.

How are your kits identified? The po said "I've done ALOT of research and these are the best Angel eyes on the market available for this car"

So I'd like to repair it vice replace it.

They are hard wired in, no physical on and off switch. I can't seem to locate any controllers, boxes, relays. They don't turn on when you unlock the car. But the do turn on with the key before the engine starts without the headlights on.

They also stay on for a minute or so after the car is shut off and the fob is used to arm the alarm.

The PO wasn't too mechanically inclined. I most certain the had a shop install these.

Those appear to be Orion V2 for facelifted coupe.
In an earlier post, you mentioned that you had them "failed" - that can mean anything from a bad crimp, to improper tap, to blown fuse to many other things.

Please email us so we can more accurately diagnose this situation for you and send us the information for the previous owner so we can look up the order and confirm. There are some knock off kits running around but they are few and far between.
