Here are some pix for u all ... It's called Ligthning Enhanced from Matt at Umnitza. I do not think that many ppl have it yet...correct me if im wrong...
It's basically the Lightning rings with the OEM look-alike/Gen V ring covering it...i like it a WHOLE LOT!!! :) :thumbup:
just ask Matt if u want more info.





PLEASE do not ask me to take more pix of it cuz im on the other side of the world rite now ... so u'll have to wait till like beginning of Jan :) :thumbup: :D

Looks good... I dont know if I want to go through the hassle of taking all the rings off to add the coverings though. They are too fragile...

u don't actually have to take the rings off. They go right over the rings. So it's pretty easy to put them on...also, I do not think that those rings are THAT fragile...

i was reading a brochure for BMW's New X5 4.4i that my family just ordered and the angel eyes are called "washers" that keep the light area clear of debris?

Shouldn't washers be the Headlight washing system... angel eyes are lights..

the thing that i have notice between oem angel eyes and the lightnings is....

the oem rings only shine foward they dont shine all over like the lightnings. with the lightnings shining every direction it throws light back into to dome reflective housing giving it a eyeball effect that doesnt look too oem.-- different but not oem, still can be cool tho.

ive been thinking of a way for months to get the lightnings to only shine "foward" but they are so thin that i dont see it possible. i was thinking something like a black paint on the back half of the rings but like i said , so thin that it wont make a difference.

but now with the "enhanced" if they are covers or go over the lightnings it might be possible to do that and not make them shine to the back, cover the back half with a black paint or something, might make the look alot more oem, it would be a cheap adaptation to the current "enhanced", but it would have to be tried out first to see if works -- just a thought. matt let me know if you have tried this already.

does anyone know what i mean?
