••DIY•• Proper Remote Kit Install (E46)

This install was done for the new Predator Orion product by Umnitza.

A lot of people have asked us about how to install the remote kit. This is a feature that allows you to install the angel eyes so they fade on/off with your interior lights.

Too many of our customers were resorting to pulling the glove box out, something that is completely unnecessary.

Details regarding this video are:
  • Total time to install this mod takes the same amount of time as the video
  • Removal of the foot well light was already performed (though this would add 10 seconds to the install)
  • This particular install was for the Predator Orion, but it's also good for the Predator Chromium install.

Nice. Just a suggestion: although I understand what is going on, it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a write-up to go with the video that describes what is being done. I think more people would find it helpful, especially the ones who aren't very DIY-savvy.

As in written words on the actual video? If so, you are correct.
My Premiere (adobe) is on the fritz so I just used QT Pro to add the videos together and put them up quickly.

Something is better than nothing. Your work is appreciated. Captions on the video would be awesome, but even an old-fashioned DIY on your website or in PDF may be all anyone needs.

Right, it's meant to coincide with the install resources on our site, but I didn't want to link to that and spam.

Will add to this video.

First there was white...then came black (with videos).

Allow us to introduce the next color in the Orion V2 Picture Gallery...Titanium Silver.

So, every time I buy rings from you guys, they die, or the ballasts die, or both die. Will this new product be more reliable?

These have no ballasts and I'm proud to say we've not had 1 component failure in over 300+ shipments this month.
