I like the way they are thicker and feel less fragile. Installation was a breeze.
I highly recommend these bad boys!
Thanks Matt

"when we can start shipping back V1 for our free replacement"

Do we have any new information on this yet? I'd like to install the V2 before the 28th as I leave for university.

Everything in this world has colors......

So your saying the original Orions are Rice also?

I'm sure plenty of customers are ready to disagree to that statement

One more thing, in case anyone cares to notice:

a) There has not been a single report of failure of Orion V2 - as we said, it's a ground up redesign, the Orion V1 were made by MyCarr, and given some limitations in the design there, we've seen some failures like yours.

b) This product is very brighter, and while we would love to put 30000 LED into it, you have to trade off, either go with very high output LED that don't require additional ballasts and failure points, or go with cheap LEDs in greater quantity and hope to make up for it. Anyone seeing our kit and the other kits out there will always see the difference.

I love my V2 Orions

Excellent upgrade from the Chromiums. They are so bright you don't even need to turn on your lights while driving through a parking garage

I don't think its the product itself, maybe the installer
I've never had issues with mines either and I've installed it myself as well. Food for thought M0nkey
