Predator Orion V2 LED Angel Eyes with Remote Kit

We had a lot of success with Predator Orion. Why not take it a step further. The upgraded more modern look of the Orion version 1, now available in the classic filled out ring of Orion V2

We decided to design our own implementation, not using any of the existing manufacturers that are available on the market.

Orion V2 has the following most important features:

60 HIGHEST OUTPUT LED ARRAY
But not the low output kind used by the competition of only 600mcd, the higher output kind (and I will not reveal it but it's BRIGHT).

Multi-Stage Clipping System
That's right, no need to decide for only 2 clips. Now you have the ability to install the clip in ANY configuration, 2 clicks? no problem, 3 clicks? no problem? 4 clicks? no problem. This solves the one issue that facelifted sedans had with the product where you sometimes had to dremel your inner trim piece.

Free Upgrade from Orion Version 1 to Version 2
You will only be responsible for shipping both ways, but if you desire to switch, you can. They are however 2 distinctive products and will be offered as such.

Fitment for all headlights:
Projector46, Projector39, Projector53 (coming soon), Projector36, etc.

Carry-Over Features
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Remote Fade/On Fade/Off
  • PolyCarbonate UV Coated Rings
  • 100K Hours Expected Life
  • Easier Installation than ANY OTHER KIT

From the leaders that brought you every innovation since the beginning of the angel eyes CCFL revolution, comes the next step.

For 2004 Coupe People
They are coming too, only a short time later after Orion II for standard E46s will be released, 2004 Coupes are coming.

For Multi-Color Changing - hang onto your hats
It's coming.

http://www.umnitza.com/product_info....oducts_id=1198

Installed Photos
Here is Orion V2.



Why buy the Orion V2 over ALL the other kits?

1) Comparison photos

Photos of all three products - Predator Chromium, Orion Version 1 and Orion Version 2. Orion Version 2 is the brightest of them all so far, that's why it's more expensive.

2) Value
If you are in the market for angel eyes, don't buy anything unless you feel comfortable and by all means. Just a reminder, ours is priced over $60 less than the highest marketed product out there.

3) Released in more applications:
Projector46 version:





4) Proven Innovation
For 5+ years, we've led innovation on angel eyes and continued to support these products and improve upon existing technology of the day. Predator Orion V2 continues our innovation standard. And, yes, our product does do the talking:



DETAILING THE PRODUCT
1.
  • The rear is covered with a full backing that holds the LED system in place. There are no external solder points on the back.
  • The covering serves as an insulation so there are no exposed points of power that could potentially lead to a short in the circuit.
  • The photo shown has additional pads that will not be on a finished ring that you receive, they were originally put there to stabilize the ring, but that is not necessary giving some proprietary mounting techniques being used.

2.
  • The clipping system is designed to clip onto all types of headlights. The multiple teeth allow you to have the proper fit no matter what application
  • It's length is sufficient for all applications
  • The clips are very high tension, meaning that once they hold onto something, they don't let go. In the past, depending on how you installed the products, you might have a clip releasing from the ring itself. That will be nearly impossible with this product.
  • Also note that the cover discussed in the previous photo is visible here for great "clarity" of what was discussed earlier.

3.
  • This is most important part of the rings here - it's CLEAR
  • Also please notice the slim profile of the LEDs so that they are not visible when off.

MOST IMPORTANTLY - THANK YOU TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS. THIS WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!!

ALL in stock and read to ship except the 4300K, see next post.

I also have seen the V1 in person and the V2 is possibly 50% brighter, its that good.

This is one of the cheapest mod and it truly only take 45 mins and i am an amateur..

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

High quality products and an easy install. Can't see any wires protruding out.

The "standard" units we offer have the same "look" as the 8K, while they are officially 6K, they have more blue in them.

The Remote kit is the fade/on/fade off.

To install these in the P46, do you need to re-use existing rings? ie. open, transfer internals, and discard the new casing?

If you receive a complete set of rings, yes.
If you pre-order with the information in our hands that you are going to put them in the P46s, we will do it for you.

Wow, OE color is freakin bright! I bet it looks way better in real life.

Also, v1 users are now able to ship back for their free upgrade to v2? I need to see these before I change screennames

These rings from Umnitza are excellent quality and insane brightness. First time I checked to see if they were on, I blinded myself, underestimating the brightness. I can drive at night with my HID fogs and these rings... that's how bright they are. The clips have far improved from the chromium days, with a very brawny look. I hope not to run into cold temp problems this winter.

No one took this photo yet, so we had a customer bring his car in to do it while we did his upgrade from the "a" kit to this one.


With black interior CF trim on the headlight:


He also had CF interior trim (from our site) put on at the same time.
For pricing on the interior CF kits, please look at our web site
