Thanks for the post. I am, as you called it, a noob when it comes to lighting and the links were very helpful. Just ordered by Mtec V3's, H11 4350's and rear license plate LEDs.

Overall, I was really happy with each component as they were as advertised and didn't throw any codes, but as a whole it just wasn't perfect since I really wanted a true 8000K matching setup all around (and I didn't realize that's not an option for pre-LCI until after I had already purchased and installed the fogs and low beams). I decided now it's time to upgrade to setup V3.

Angel Eyes: MTEC V3 7000K LEDs (purchased here)
Low Beams: MTEC D1S 8000K Xenons (purchased here)
Fog Lights: 8000K High Performance HID Conversion Kit with 9006 bulbs to work with M3 rep foglights instead of OEM H11 fogs that come with pre-LCI (purchased here)











As a teaser, in preparation for my next mod I had Alex@Alpine do some coding for me today. Nice guy with a cleanly modded, supercharged CTS V. Super happy with the results - wish I'd done this a long time ago.
Note: MTEC V3 Angel Eyes still shown below, just had them coded as daytime running lights and did an amber corner delete. Oh, and I know my stance is off in the front b/c I removed my 10mm spacers to get ready for some track time! They'll be back on in a week.
