These will not increase light output or effect your light out put in anyway. They are merely a cosmetic piece. Basically they are rings that clip onto your headlights, much like neon lights and glow whenever you turn your car on. They give the car a mean stare and look absolutely incredible. Check out my sig or go to www.jlevisw.com to check them out

Budman - Email sent

There is a plethora of pictures all over the web, but here are a couple of my favorites:





For those of you who don't know anything about the product - here's a brief summary:
-No lightboxes or messy fiberoptics
-Don't "burn out"
-20,000 hours (over 2 years) continuous life
-8000K xenon white color
-No glueing required
-Wires are thin enough to be run out of the back of the headlight - no drilling of holes is necessary
-3x brighter than any other technology

Crap i just bought all of it seperately!!! How much of a difference does it make when the rings are already mounted? Are the rings colour any diff with enhcd?? Is it normal for a ring sometime not to work, this happens sometimes when it rains?? Should have waited

M3_CaB - who did you buy from? Maybe I can help
The rings are the same basic color, just diffused a little bit.
The rings will either always work or you have a wiring problem. Something may be loose.

Note to you guys:
-I will have more kits assembled and ready to rock by... Friday most likely. Saturday is a religious holiday (yom kippur) for me, so most likely I will ship by monday.
This is, of course, if I recieve payment from 5+ individuals.

After the backup order I placed today... trust me... I can handle all of your orders and then some

I just have one single question, and it's probably dumb, but i've never found an answer. When are the halo's on? I know they fade in/out with the remote kit. But are the halo's set up to always be on when the car is on? Or do they go on with the fogs? Or is there an extra switch you install to get them to turn on?

I would probably rather have them always on rather then on with the foglights since i dont' use my fogs that much. So when i hook them up, at what times will the halo's be lit up? Thanks!

Lightbulb What do u mean by diffused??

I got them off bitharvest (fellow e46fanatic). Got it installed professionally, took them half a day to install cuz they were scared to break neon ring. They said it couldnt b done in 2 hrs, is it that hard to install? Mine didnt come with the neon rings mounted to the enhanced plastic part, so dont know what version of rings i received. One ring went out and another ring was kinda flickering at lower level, but now suddenly its ok!! Can u help?

I'm extremely interested in this. However, just like everyone I have a few questions I was hoping you can answer for me. To my understanding the E46 had a 'facelift' after the manufacturing year of 2002. I currently have a 2004. Will installation be affected by this? How much 'abuse' can the halos take? Are they brittle? I'm just afraid I'm going to do something stupid like drop it while installing it or something... Last question, I also have xenon headlights OEM on the car arleady. Will this affect the installation? Sorry for all these questions, I just want to rather be sure than always have lingering questions in my head. Thanks in advance!

-Installation is easy: These kits come with a printed installation guide, and a printed card detailing the link and password for the remote kit installation guide (full color pictures on this one). Most people can accomplish this installation in well under 2 hours.

-We are fully stocked (I'm up to my ears in halos)

-I will put the link up in a minute, I need to ship a few items first. I'll assemble more sets while waiting for 5+people to pay. Maybe we can ship as early as tomorrow if 5 of you pay by then. Otherwise, they all go out Monday

-These halos fit ALL E46's besides 2004 COUPEs - we have a different version for the 04 coupe. They will work just fine with xenons. In some facelift sedans, you need to shave down the headlight trim a little bit to clear the enhanced upgrades - other than that, no problems.

-The halos turn on via fog lights or ECU. With the ECU, they go on when the key is in position 2, and go off 10 seconds after the car is shut off. You can put in a custom switch if you ever have the desire to turn them off. We can provide you with a full DIY if you wish to do so.

-If you drop them during installation, they WILL break. The enhanced covers protect them from clumby hands or trying to "stretch" them to fit on, but they ARE glass - so act accordingly.

Let me ship real quick then I'll put up a specialized ordering page for you guys.
