Nice. This kit has always looked a little off to me, I'm used to the outside rings being larger than the inside ones, and sitting further back, 'floating' over the chrome. Not sure if using the same size for inside/outside is cost savings or what. Still looks good though.

I know of at least two forum members, in addition to myself who have done this as a DIY (the orion v2 kit). for me, the headlight work was the easiest part, getting the headlights out of the car was the worst. Not extremely difficult, just time consuming.

I would be the third DIY in the forum if somebody else does not beat me to it... I'll be getting the Orion V2 kit as a Christmas present from my girlfriend.

The LS3 is definitely one of THE BEST LED Angel Eye solutions out in the market today. I personally had the LS3 V1 with the same sized rings all around when it first came out. I've since made an upgrade to the LS3 V2 with the larger outer ring and the full black out package. The great thing about it is that you do get a choice as everyone has their own preferences. Here are some pictures of the LS3 V2 with the full black out option for you guys to enjoy!





















For all you HD fans out there the HD version is here.

Regarding the flickering issue:
There is no flickering of the lights when you see it in person. There is a scientific explanation to it, but I'm not a scientist. HOWEVER, I am a photographer and through my past experience, I have encountered this issued through my lens. Basically look at a TV or monitor through your camera and you will see this flicker, when you can't see it with your naked eye.

Lemme get this straight. This is a DIY, right? You have to open up the headlights. How is this done? I was under the impression that this is akin to black magic or something. Once the headlights are out is it really that easy to open them up to replace the rings? TIA.


awei130,

Is that your car? Looks good.


Cheers.

P.S. Which Kevin?

Yep, much easier than I expected to open them up. I was apprehensive because I saw a youtube how to on a different brand headlight and the guy had to pry, bake, pry, bake several times, looked like a pain but it was cake.

There is one screw and two rubber tube vents (they're not actually air tight, might surprise some), remove them. Pop them in the oven at 200 or so for 10 min, put on some thin gloves (I had a pair of pit crew gloves) so you still have dexterity, pull them out of the oven, pop off the clips and the lens should peel right off with very minimal prying to get it started.

Sounds scary, until you realize that the headlight internals get much hotter during operation, especially halogen DRL on a 100 degree+ day. No way the heat will hurt. I have seen people suggest a heat gun, very bad idea, not only do you get to fight with uneven heating but most guns have a choice of 500 or 1000 deg, either is capable of melting something.

putting them back together is easier. the sealant is tough and tacky at room temp, i was able to fit them together within a few mm and attach two of the clips, and then popped them back in the oven for 5 min, pulled them out and squeezed them the rest of the way, installed the screws, rubber vents and was done. for those extra cautious, you could also run an additional small bead of silicone on the seam, easy to cut if you want to reopen for whatever reason.

I just got the LS3 installed a couple days ago, and I love it. Way better than my cheapo GP Thunders. The LS3 angel eye is my favorite mod on my car. I couldn't be happier with the product and the service of BavX.

Yeah its a 335i and not an M3, but you'd be surprised on how much power you can make with the twin turbos!

Hi Guys, I have a few questions for the folks that did this as a DIY.

- how are the rings mounted? are they glued on or there are screws to mount them?
- I am assuming this kit won't cause any error message while it's running but for those that have 2010-2011 models, do you run into any error message during cold start?
- the kits seems to have a plug and play H8 connector. what happens to the original H8 blub? Is that left to be in the original slot and just not plugged in?

Thanks in advance for your help. It would be great if someone can post a DIY on the mounting and wiring of the ring.
