thats my problem

Umnitza said i must only connect the little white box at the OEM H8 bulb...

but the box only hat a white and brown wire ,you see on the picture ?!

so there is no red one?


the only red cables are at the wiring harness from umnitza... ?!



if i turn the white and brown from the box at OEM bulb the angle eyes turn on , of course...
but what is when i turn on the low beam ?
the angle eyes dimm and the orion v2 should turn of ? do they? there undercharged ?

there's only a positive and negative coming from the box (brown or red; brown or white). Tap into the OEM angel eye positive and negative cables.

if theyre only turning on when you turn on the low beam, youre obviously tapped into the low beam bulb, not the angel eye bulb.

no that was my question because the OEM angle eyes have a dimm function?

and SMD cannot dimm ?!

so that was my question where i turn in + ???
to the h8 OEM bulb wire or on the yellow cable at the xenon low beam? (it is the yellow to the xenon callet?)


thx very much

I didn't hook up red anyway on mine. They still dim as they are supposed to when the headlights come on and function as normal. I wired it by breaking apart the stock H8 bulbs. Get some pliers, cover the blub in paper towel, and crush it. Remove all the glass and the metal circle piece at the base and there will be two long metal pieces exposed, I soldered the brown and white connections there and then the kit is plug-and-play.

You will have to test which side goes on the left or right for brown and white, so make sure you don't screw that up!

BTW guys, i recommend not using epoxy if you glue the led engel eyes to the stock plastic tubes, mine are yellowing. looking for an alternative:

Bond 527 / Beacon 527
3M™ Universal Adhesive Clear

Or you could do as I did and just paint the portion from the epoxy and up all black...

can somebody confirm that the smaller/inner ring would fit into the e92 lights??
10,5 cm is way bigger then the origin, or not?

Sorry, I can't answer your question but I do want to point out that your inner ring looks like it's their V2 version and not the V4's like the outer ring you have in the pic. You should contact whoever you bought them from and get the correct ring before proceeding.

V4's have LED's next to one another, those are both V2's. The size looks correct.

I thought the V2's only have 1 plug. Guess I'm wrong.

yes, they are V2. V4 has only more LEDs, but unfortonutaly the are not made in 4300k color. I just only wanted know, if the size of inner ring will fit instead of inner OEM. Coz Umnitza inner diameter is 10,5cm, an OEM is about 9.5cm, and there is not so much space in the headlight.
