Angel Eyes- are they worth it? Orion v2 vs. v4? also benefits from them?

im looking foward to install angel eyes on my '01 330ci convertible, im just not too sure about the price, i know they look all cool, and ive heard that the orion angel eyes are the best ones, but im looking into more cheaper angel eyes that are durable and high quality under $100.

im interested also in buying orion v2 or v4, but i want to know their specifics and durabity, and how owners have experienced these angel eyes

Also i want to know the benefits from it and the disadvantages, im also concerned that people say they will usually malfuction in about 3 months, so i just want to make sure its going to be a worth purchase!

please share your experiences with me!

It is a very easy install. Less than an hour even if you don't know what you're doing.

Easy to install. 45 minutes work tops. I have V4's. The high LED density means that the rings give a pretty uniform look.
