Still not what I want though If I could I'd do FXR or LS projectors since they are the best and Osram CBI bulbs (200 per pair!) Then projector fogs too.

Awesome.

Any pics of just the angel eyes? Trying to decide between 5000 and 6000K on the V2. I don't want them to look bluish and it looks like from the reflection in that first pic that 6000 might.

they are white. there arent 5000k angel eyes i dont think.
they only look blue at night from pictures because they cant process the light that good and from the reflection of the white light on the black headlight shroud. or sometimes they look kinda purple in the daylight from the white light on the black shroud

Oops, my bad. Umnitza offers the V2 in 4300 or 6000K.

I won't have black shrouds. I would like to know if their "night controller" is advisable (dims rings to 70% brightness when the headlights are on). I'm not exactly sure why this would be desirable. They offer it for $40 so I'm guessing someone wants it?
