There are no opaque options for the 2004 coupe units. You can if you wish make them opaque. If you don't want to see the gaps, then your best choice is the Orion V4, that is an option.

Do you have photos of the V4 on a 2004+ E46 coupe? What gap are you referring to? The gap between the halo and the reflector bowl/projector?

You stated that you don't like to see the individual LED. Those LED are not visible if you have a lot of them to make the ring appear uniform (up close only).

The photos of the V4 or the V2 will not look any different when turned on and on the car.
This is a good photo comparison of the two products:


Orion V2 on the left.

That's a good improvement. Am I correct in saying that the facelift coupe halos are 360 degree surrounds with no break like the other ones (shown here)?

Use a heatgun to warm up the edges of the lens to make the glue soft and pull it apart. When you are ready to put it back in warm up the edges of the lens and lights and add some silicon and put it together.
