Talking Umnitza V4

I finished installing my Umnitza V4 lights last night. Thanks to wasteland and cbozz for their DIY tutorials!

I blacked everything out and love the way it looks.

** Edit
Umnitza just added this DIY for the E92 install.

It took my much longer than I thought for the install, but well worth it :-)

All the pictures below are unedited and exported unchanged form Lightroom (aside from the border). I tried to vary the exposure a little bit just to see the light in some slightly different conditions. Most pics were taken afternoon time on an overcast day, the dark ones were taken in the night @ 2AM.

enjoy!

If you black that part out your flash-to-pass and cornering light is useless. Trust me, I know lol

no it's not, look closely what I actually blacked out, I didn't black out the inside of it (that reflects the light) nor the glass part of it but the round area which doesn't matter for cornering..... look at my pix and compare them to his..

hmm, are you wanting help taking the bumper and headlights off, and doing the install of the lights? blacking out the inside too?

Thanks, love the V4s! I decided not to black out the chrome "border" around the cornering assembly because I thought it looked disconnected from the black (formerly chrome) housing. I made the choice that inside the light could just all be chrome, instead of only half Chrome.

I like yours too, just decided to go the other route.

yeah not the inside lol! MAYBE the outside border but I chose not to.

I like the tires, not my first choice though. I forget the ones I wanted, but they were the only tires in that size with a 5XX treadwear rating.

These ones have a firm sidewall, good traction, and I LOVE the look. And, since I don't drive the car a whole lot, I don't really mind the softer rubber and lower tread rating.

yup...basically Well I know how to take the bumper of, and I'm sure once I do that I can figure out how to take the headlights out...but its more less helping with doing the V2(or 4) install with the blacking out too.
