thinking about putting in multi-color angel eyes

I was thinking of doing a projector retrofit kit but I wanna add angel eyes.
I know the uhps are supposedly the best but I think these would be kind of cool. I don't want to know opinions of what you think they look like but will they hold up or are they crap quality?

Holy crap those are cheap. I got mine from Umitza and they have held up. Honestly for that amount of money I would try it....assuming it didn't set my car on fire.

Here are the pics fellas, sorry about the delayed response. It was hard to pick up the led light in the camera so I used my iphone's burst mode to capture it the best. Keep in mind all the leds do light up just hard to capture. I included a few of the colors it can do as well..

Very simple. After watching a YouTube video on how to open the headlight apart I have it a go and got it my first shot. Very easy just no instructions included however id love to give some help if needed (:

Re: thinking about putting in multi-color angel eyes

Thats sweet! I might actually get those, seems worth the little amount of money. How many different colors can it do? Can it do white?

Roughly 15 different colors , all stemming from your main colors. And yes it can do white however it has a slight blue tint to it. And keep in mind you cannot drive with the red or blue on as they are emergency colors, but any other color is fine I do believe. If your interested solely in the white stick with the Orion's!

That was my plan, the V2's. I was just wondering how it worked on those. I will most likely end up going with orions and retrofit projectors into my headlamps. Glad it turned out good! And legality varies state to state, I know any color would be illegal in VA other than white or amber. I even got hassled for my yellow fogs I had on an e36 I traded.

Personally for colored ones I would go with quality. Why do some of them look half lit in the pics?

The camera cannot pick up the led's as they "flash" in the camera. So I took many and chose the best looking ones. They all do function and light up properly.

Is the controller wireless? If not, where did you mount it?

The remote is wireless , but they get power by tapping into a cable within the ecu .. I'm not too sure what you're asking ?

Was basically saying IF the remote wasnt wirless, where would you mount it, wire it etc.


Good to know its wireless though

How easy was the install? Seems like other AE sets have more components?
