OSS incoming. Need cornering and fog suggestions

Many of you might remember this thread but I finally decided and sent out the headlights today.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=793821

Anyways i'm doing gunmetal housing, and eyebrow with satin black projector housings, white LED's in the eyebrow, and V4 rings. Basically i'm just looking to see if anyone has any suggestions on a bulb to run in the cornering light and maybe a suggestion for what HID fogs and temp to get. I'm looking for something that's a close match but it doesn't have to be 100% perfect. Anyone have the V4's and bulbs that match well? Anyways here's some pics of how my car sits now and how it will be until the lights come back. Thanks in advance for the help!

Luckily I timed mine pretty well. I'm away next week so I basically told Luis no rush. My only condition is I just want him to make sure they're here by Saturday the 16th so I can install them on Sunday. Other than that i'm so excited . Next up I have to do front/rear bumpers

I think normally the turn around time is 2-3 days once Luis has them. So normally you would probably only have your headlights out for about a week. As I said I told him to take his time though since i'm going away next week

If you mean V2 and V4 basically the V4 have more LED's so they get rid of the beaded look. Here's a pic from another thread somewhere that should kind of show the difference. From what Umnitza says they have the most LED's out of any LED ring currently available

(V2 vs. V4)

There is no cornering light bulb, its all leds. If you want to get rid of the amber your gonna have to solder in each individual leds. They are the same ones as the eye brow led.

No I don't think you're understanding what I mean... I'm talking about the bulb closest to the middle of the car which is an H3 bulb. I'm already having Luis replace the amber LEDs in the eyebrow with white LED then if i deicde i don't want anything i'll code those out. I already ordered the cornering lights a day ago thanks to E92-lighting's suggestion. I'm keeping fogs at what I have for now because I might be getting a new bumper shortly

Yea some people like it but I just wanted more of a uniform look. All the pictures of the V4's on the forums make them look sick

That looks awesome V4 or V2? Can you PM me his number by any chance? I've just been emailing him and he doesn't always respond immediately since he's so busy so I have to send emails. If he gives out his number please shoot me a PM with it.
