They r brighter no doubt. I have seen the comparison so I know. Check out the link below. That thread should be stickied. Guy really wrote hell of a post. The car with V4 is mine. The picture he shows for v4 vs v2 is the comparison I saw in real life before I got them. V4 is a better option no doubt. At least for me.

That's a really good DIY for bumper removal. But that's just the beginning. After the bumper and headlights r off. There's bunch of other steps. Which I wasn't there to see. Lol. I was watching dark knight. But you have to bake the headlights and do some other stuff. I mean literally they put the headlights in the oven. If someone can do this whole 5-6 hour job themselves, then they should post it in DIY section. Will save people good amount of money on labor.

Thanks for that link. I was inquiring if the V4's are whiter, not brighter, which I could already tell they are. The V2's in pics seemed more bluish than the V4's in your pics, but the comparison pic in the link shows that the colors are indeed the same.

Ohh sorry. Didn't catch it the first time. Yes, they r both the same amount of white because they r 6000k rings. According to Matt at Umnitza, V4's are brighter because of having more LED's.

I don't think "Baking" The headlights is as hard as everyone else is trying to make it. My friend and I did it on his 2012 Acura TL... It was fairly simple job.

Where did you get these orion's? My only worry is wiring the angele eyes... I'm not sure if all the resistors and everything elese needed is included in the package. Would suck if you "bake" them, install it all and then later get the damn Warning light.

Dude I am the type of guy that couldn't even take the emblem of the hood and trunk. Lol. I never do any work myself since most of the times I am too scared to mess it up. Like I said earlier on the post, there is a reason why no one really does this on their own and sends it OSS or Lightwurkz.
Taking apart the whole headlight, baking and all that is too much sensitive work. For me at-least. But again, if you are that guy who loves to do stuff on his own, then go for it. Again, please post you progress pics so it can help other people save some big money on labor. I got the lights from Umnitza in Concord, CA and had them install it.
I never got an error code since I got these. Been over a month I think. I am not sure what comes in the package. Call Umnitza, talk to Matt, find out the details and Good luck!

Thumbs up Orion v4's installed

They look much better in person than they do in pics but here you are.
Love the look! Also they flicker in the video but not in person

I went to go see Matt at Umnitza (for the install) and he explained everything about the lights, even was cool enough to drop me off at a movie theatre and pick me up afterwards which I think showed a lot about his character of not having a customer wait around and get bored for 5 hours. So that was nice of him to offer, also suggested other places in the area to visit.

Install went great and to my satisfaction. He also helped me take a video and some pics of my car which was nice of him to offer.

All in all, great service. Great install.

Hope you guys enjoy the pics and video!

Thank you BADAZZM for turning me on to these bad boys!

I'll be giving my LUX H8 V3's to a buddy of mine

The ones I saw (v2's) just appeared to be not as bright as v4's. I think the v4's are brighter at double the LED's so they look brighter and in turn whiter.
