Umnitza Predator Chrom....problem

Hi all,

just wondering if anybody has had this problem with these angel eyes, i ordered them for a 2005 M3.

Both rings are the same the ring which is meant to fit around the projector light does'nt appear to fit correctly. It clips on at the top, however this brings the bottom out a bit. I rang the company i bought them from and they said that when their fitting them, they use "silicone" to attatch the bottom ring.........This does'nt sound right to me. Has anybody else fitted these or done this??

He gave the reason that Umnitza make their angel eyes as universal as possible and not model specific......... Help anybody??

on the angel eye that goes around the projector headlight, you dont fully clip it on... you actually only clip one side on and almost clip on the other (so it is secure) and that should make it square inside the headlight. Ive had mine "clipped" like that for a couple years now, no probs! I hope this is what you are reffering too

That has to do with positioning the clips and headlight trim correctly. It requires some patience and trial and error but try to fit them like this:
