No coding, and no error codes here.

you have dimming already.. mine got a bit banged up cuz i was a little rough with it,,... all those areas are pretty much covered tho so you can't see dings (my luck!!)

I got my V2's but I think I was sent the wrong white boxes. I have three boxes (lol) one with four female inserts and two with two female inserts. I think I was supposed to get two white boxes with four female inserts on each.

OP, Do you think that the V4;s are too bright compared to the V2's? I am going to be doing this mod to my car but I don't want AE that are too bright like the HID AE upgrades.

Do they look as bright in person as they do in the pictures or do they look less intense? The picture that you have in the garage seems like they are so bright that you can't even see the rings.

I like the V2's but the V4's are only $100 more and if they look better and not overwhelming than I would opt to buy the V4's.

Thanks

I'll say one thing! DEF. GET THE V4s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They just look perfect!!! They are very bright but nothing like HIDs....
they are outstanding and you can see them very well during the day but they are not too bright where they blind you!
