Will this effect the color of the lights? Like if you paint the cut off shield red, will it turn the low and high beams red too?

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

Paint the cutoff shield. For this one I did for myself (LCI with V2) I painted the projector bowl too. Which affected the light output. Shows up white and looks red when looking at them. But not bright to illuminate the street. So I painted the projector bowl portion white. That helped with the light output. Then traded them to a member with a non-M E60. They have foglights which will help light the road better then my M5.

For my LCI with V4. I painted just the cutoff shield only. For my 4th set, I'm going to add a red LED and paint the cutoff shield.

Nope. Did them all myself. Did 3 sets for my car. A set of pre-LCI with V2. Then LCI with V2 and current one is LCI with V4.

Did total about 10 E60 headlights and 1 E90.

No, the shield is red on the front, the light is coming from behind it. Some people also put a colored LED in there to enhance the effect.

If you're talking about the amber reflectors, the shop used a black vinyl to black it out when the headlights were opened.

Man that looks great. Did you use a DIY? How expensive?

And don't worry, no one in this thread is looking at suspension.

I think we can conclude now that Orion V4's, are in fact, the titties.
