I like the beaded look of the V2. Looks more aggressive. Also, the famous Umnitza gap in the inner ring is much less noticeable with the V2 (it kinda looks like it is part of the beaded design). With the V4, it is a lot more noticeable.

Hows that purple hue?
Mabby u have 8k rings lol.


V2 looks like some serious rice.
Makes your car look like some jap car that bought some ebay headlights with "halo style" rings.

Btw Take your own picture with a normal camera cause Jays girls camera has a majorly adjusted white balance and has no bearing on the real world.

I feel like the photos make them look more yellow than they really are. I actually like the way they look when they're off just as much as when they're on haha

The white balance of the camera will throw off the color.

V4 would look like LCI more because it contains more LED's making it look like a continuous ring. V2 has that beaded look (which I prefer and think is unique)... Both are really bright (V4 is 30% brighter according to Umnitza) and both are daytime visible. The gap on the inner ring, however, is less visible with the V2 because it looks like it's part of the beaded look... The gap on the V4 is more visible

The gap isnt noticeable if you install them correctly. Ask DirtyJersey, I installed his....LOL! V4 is much nicer, but V2 is still nice.
