Halo questions

i have a 01 330i with xenons.
i like the look of Orion v2 with led but ive also heard that they have problems... apparently EVERY set of Halos has problems if you search the threads here enough lol

sounds like those problems are from bad contacts or exposed wire, both easily fixable

Our LED kits will be easier to install and more reliable as they do not require a ballast but the CCFLs are proven technology that will work and is more affordable. LEDs are also more bright and provide a more pure white light output than the CCFLs.

You are confusing the mycarr kit - which is nothing like the Orion V2 kit with our kit.

Orion kits don't have issues of any kind, not in the cold, not any problems with wiring or anything at all.

We've had 1 return due to failed led on a 4300K that we are investigating, but we've had 0 issues with 6000K in over 3000 units sold.

No, there is no baking involved if you have a 2000-2003 Coupe, 2001-2006 M3, or 1999-2005 Sedan. No baking is involved.

LED tails are $165 SHIPPED......

You just have to pay for the angel eyes, the Orion V2s, which are $138.99 + Shipping

Compared to EAS which is $150 for LED Tails and $200 for Angel Eyes....Plus shipping on both....

Be careful, the cheapest price isn't necessarily the best deal. A forum search will show who has the best Customer Service.
