Ordering complete Fxr setup this week

Alright fellas, I'm ordering my retrofit setup this week. I've researched and researched about what I'm buying and I think it's gonna turn out awesome. Ordering the bi-xenon FX-R 3.0 projectors + Osram CBI 5000k bulbs and associated 35w ballast, harness, and e46 shrouds. I'm also ordering Orion V2 Opaque angel eyes from Umnitza to top it all off. Like I said, I'm super pumped to do this retrofit. Gotta give a lot of credit to all the fellas who answered some questions in the this lighting section of the forum, your responses definitely helped on these decisions!! I'm gonna make a DIY after its all complete and possibly a video. I'll keep y'all updated.

Awesome!!! How much is the project going to run you?

I didn't do a ton of research, I simply went with xi_chee's walk through and ordered to Morimoto Mini H1 and E46-R shrouds.
I opted for a DDM Tuning 5000K HID kit and I'm trying to decide on Angel Eyes now. I was looking to do this on somewhat of a budget, I'm sure there's better stuff out there now but the items I've selected seem to be tried and true.

This project is gonna run to about $650-700 I believe, not including new headlight lens cover. Gonna do either clear or smoked corners, new matte black grill, and new clear or smoked side markers. Also going to paint the headlight housing matte black to match new grille. I've had the car for 2 years and these are going to be my first real upgrades to the vehicle. I'm pumped about it.

Nice, sounds like it will look amazing. What color is the car?

Post up photos when you're done!

So far, projectors, shrouds and HID kit I'm at about $150. I still need Angel eyes and new headlight lenses though.

I really don't want to spend $160+ on Orion V2's, however they seem to be the "best" option.
I may press my luck on a eBay LED kit, they include the fade on/off harness.
