Yeah I think I've seen the original video, but the video does not accomodate for pre-installed predator chromiums.

Is it as easy as fitting replacement CCFL light tubes into the chromium predator plastic covering/housing or would one have to remove all traces of the chromium predator plastic housing?

I will place an order, I'm sure you will provide solid instructions for the install

No, we'll have a new video for the P46 specifically.

Currently, we're running specials on those so it's not hard for us to show a video on how to swap it.

It's not quite as easy as the Chromium rings to fit into it, but it's not too bad.

There doesn't seem to be an option to select Predator Orion II on your upgrade page, the option to select different versions is only available on the full package deal page.

What I'd like to pre-order is a Predator Orion II upgrade, but can't currently do that on you web site.

Upgrade to Predator Orion $79.99
Predator Orion II 60 LED + $19.99
How much for shipping to the U.K??
Just trying to get an overall amount shipped.

Just an observation - there is no option to select other compatible sedans according to your product description/application 'all 1999-2005 Sedans' also my shipping kept defaulting to "Flat Rate (Best Way)"

How convenient. I post a side-by-side comparison of the Orion and the Aurora and the post gets deleted.

Understandable considering this is a thread about a particular product. The fewer sh!t storms, the better.

Want to create one? Make a new thread.

Here's a concept, let's focus on the products and not random jabs by competitors to each other?

I'm to blame for letting faulty advice to my customers get the better of me and lashing out at people making poor advice the norm. The problem is I genuinely care that my customers get their products installed properly and have them working.

That very idea is why Orion V1 was initial born, and now why V2 is:

Shipment is coming - V2:

We did not provide them to any of our retailers, while we do continue to drop ship for them, the demand for the first version is almost outstripping supply.

Agree 100%

Hmmm, I never thought about that... you may be onto something there. I can tell you from my own experience, the Orion V1's were a DEFINITE eye-catcher at Hot Import Nights DC show a few weeks back (I took home my first award there for "Hottest Theme" for my car's CF theme and how it relates to the CF in my partly-mechanical heart) with MANY people flocking up to my car like moths to a light (LOL)... the V1's are definitely unique-looking in a good way.

Maybe he meant that with such a unique looking angel eye setup like the V1's, people would notice those right away and would start checking out the car to see what other mods the car has. Don't get me wrong, I think it's perfectly fine for a stock looking car to have these V1 angel eyes - it all comes down to personal preference, but speaking from my own experience as being someone with a highly modified car, these V1s have been GREAT and very eye-catching.

Sorry Matt, but I must respectfully disagree with you here, bro.... I am definitely the one person who has loved these V1 angel eyes from the first time I saw them.

I respectfully agree with you. I'm the only other one (duh, I spec'ed it to begin with) that really really likes it right out the gate.

Wait til you see the next photos, they are now on the car.

Odd... I had posted some of these pics in another of Matt's threads but no longer see my posts (maybe my camera skills were that bad that my posts got deleted, LOL), but here you go, bro.



Orions are on the driver side lights... Chromiums on the passenger side lights


This pic was taken after I won "Hottest Theme" at Hot Import Nights DC carshow a few weeks ago.


My car will be fully featured in Eurotuner magazine within the next 4 months, so I know the photographer that Eurotuner sent to conduct my car photoshoot took some pics of my car with the angel eyes on, so hopefully you'll see those pics in the magazine.
