gorgeous photos!

and now I need little advice. I have connected the remote control for V2 to friends΄ e46 diesel. And we cut off the original wire from parking bulb and also put out the small bulb. But the problem is that the corners light doesnt wanna go of while the engine is started.....
How to figure it out?

I just installed mine the other day... Make the car look a lot better.

I ordered my kit on ebay, the quality was fine. I just had to buy the relay and do all the electrical for that. No big deal thx to the DIY pages.

I think the hardest part of the install was getting the wires behind the bulbs. I suggest a mechanical finger as my wires had clips on them. On anynote they looks great and Ill have to update my profile pic too.

My suggestion is use a semi-stiff piece of wire to fish it out the back (feed the stiff wire through the headlight and out the top-front, attach the 4 wires to that and pull the stiff wire+wiring out through the back)

Hello,

I'm living in France, and a friend living in San Diego, CA, shipped me the DDMTuning 62+ LED Angel Eye, from MyCarr.
They works perfectly since I installed them. (october 2008)

Here are a few pictures on my 328Ci :




A few days ago, one angel eye stopped to work correctly :


I had to remove the angel eye, check the connections, and founded that the welding between the 2 LEDs half ring that compose the AE was broken. I think it comes from the vibrations of the car, while going on.

i fixed it, installed back the AE, and all is okay now.

Also the Orions come with this neat plug and play board so there was no need to crimp wires.

I also installed 6000K HID fogs and 6000K bulbs for the headlight

Thanks to Matt at umnitza :thumbsup2:

hey umnitza i got the orion v2 60 led.. they are baller.. fit onto my existing halogen housing perfectly! will be posting pics soon!! i have stock h11 fog bulbs, as well as stock h7 bulbs... they are too yellow and do not match the eyes... i am strapped for cash so p46s, hids, xenons are out of the question. i have been doing some pretty serious seaching and i need a bulb some replacement bulbs that will match the orions. you say that your xenesis tru match will indeed closely match, but they are poor for use as headlights? i really dont want silverstars, or philips bulbs because they are prettty much the same as oem (yellowish tint).. also i defintly dont want something to blue because that would look ricey.. the orions are primarily white but have a slight bluish color...any thoughts.. id really like some matching lights..

any pics of xenesis trumatch bulbs on a car with ORION V2s?

We don't carry xenesis, only Xenix, while the names are similar, the bulbs are different.
Give us a call tomorrow, we'll get you set up with some good alternatives.

Future combo deal?

^ awesome. You may recall I had some "issues" with a competitors product. I swore I wouldn't mess with halo's again, but I'm warming back up to the idea. A local friend has had his Orions in since about that time, he had no troubles with installation and they look great...

Just had new control arm end bushings put in, it'll be a few months, but I really like the way the halo's look with those LED bulbs, very clean, seems to match perfectly...
