If you want AEs that are visible in daylight and can run as DRLs, Umnitza Orion V2 is the only choice.

Otherwise, don't waste your money.

Visibility in daylight is not only about how bright the light bulb is but also the color of the light.

If you measure the brightness of the stock bulb when compared to the Mtech v3 you will find that the Mtech is a much more brighter bulb but the OEMs are more visible . The reason is the COLOR

Orion v2 has a 6500k color, this adds a pinch of purple to the color of the led's when compared to a 5500k Orion v4 which is perfectly white in color.

When you look at both versions of Orions (v2 &v4) standing exactly at the same distance, there is not much difference that your eye can tell as far as brightness. You will be able to distinguish based on the gaps that are seen on the Orion v2 vs the Full Led arrangement on the v4s.

Now, which one is more eyecatching -- Orion v2 (cuz it has color)
Which one is more bright - Orion v4

I hope this answers our question.

I have a Alpine AE DRL HID kit coming. No errors, DRL's, 8000k bulbs. One of the brightest options.

Does anyone have an pictures of their aftermarket angel eyes? The descriptions are great but pictures would do more justice in my opinion.

..Also, do any of these bright options result in burning of the headlight clear housing?

I was also looking into the AE optins last week and decided to order the Umnitza VXX Ice whites..Maybe I should have gone for these V2 or V4's. Will fit them over the next few weeks and then decide that is enough of a reason to get the beast out of hibernation for some snow fun
