Blk e90M. Quad Projectors and Type II Diffuser added

Couldn't pass up the opportunity when TaylorGame was parting out his limerock, grabbed his Quad Projectors, didn't know they were 3000k (Yellow Tint) til I had them installed, I love the look of them. I had a Lux kit previously but the full on Orion Angels (think these are v2) are a huge difference in brightness and i like the look of them even when not on.

Also picked up a Type II diffuser, doesn't make a huge difference on the car but does improve the look of it which is all I wanted.

Nothing much more I'd want to do cosmetically, only consideration is for a 550 kit...but also hesitant to put more money in this car vs. putting it into whatever is next. Still love driving the car but wouldn't mind a shiny new toy

Nice car! Love the V2 rings.
But are those turn signal on? I think they look a bit dim

Was the diffuser hard to install? I still need to install mine and I'm dreading it. It seems like it'll be hard to get it to fit properly.

Thanks guys! Yeah, the lights make the car standout and it's fun just to have an extra switch to control the inner projectors

Yeah with the additional striping of the turn signal thing they do look a bit dimmer.

Haha, yeah you've probably seen it through its stages over the last couple years, how is your new car coming along?

Diffuser...i struggled with the install a couple times trying it in my garage during the winter...I actually gave up for a while as it wasn't sticking. Luckily when the weather warmed up I managed to do it with just 3M tape (I had bought beta link just in case). The key is doing it in warm weather and also with the 3M tape - my first couple attempts I cut it into small pieces but what worked best in the end was just one continuous strip from edge to edge. So yeah - warm weather, stick it on, use some painters tape to help hold it in place for 4-6hours then you should be ok. I've washed the car a few times since and still good.

Shouldn't difficult, but I only have experience with Arkym. The diffuser was very easy to install compared to a front lip or side skirt extenders. It really helps to have 2 people though, but I did it myself before.

Just make sure you also use 3M tape too, in spots where you think it'll need it and you'll be fine.

I tried to install my type II but it was having issues sticking on the corners. I don't want to sit there for 4 hours applying heavy force to the diffuser and bumper.

Diffuser I got used from someone on the forum...had to hunt a while for it, more e92 diffusers available than e90 ones.
