DTM CORONA HALOS v2 for DIY'ers

Hello all fellow DIY'ers,

We're just collecting interest to see how many DIY'ers would be interested in buying these new DTM CORONA halos (NEW BMW HALOS on 2014+ models)to retrofit into your headlights. Currently 888CONCEPT doesn't offer these halos to the public, but we've received quite a few requests which has led us to creating this thread. Currently on the market, the only DTM CORONA halos that look as good as ours would be OSS's version. No other competitors can come close (as of yet).

Our DTM corona halos come with high quality cast acrylic diffusers (clear ring covers) that are thick yet slim (in width) to allow OEM-like fitment on most models, especially E92 PRE-LCI where inner housing space is very limited.

FEATURES:

*888CONCEPT DTM CORONA halos look closest to OEM. They don't just look great when they're lit, but they also look great when they are off.

*Our diffusers are THICK and are made of high quality acrylic that have OEM grooves carved into the acrylic. The grooves help produce better glow and keep them look close to OEM, thus they're harder and more expensive to produce.

*Our diffusers are slim (in width), and are the same width of the LED rings themselves. Which allow easier mounting and as well as PERFECT alignment with projector shrouds. YES your projector shroud will be centered just like OEM. Again, we're shooting for OEM-like quality and look.

*REVISED Version 2 acrylic have smooth edge, just like OSS.

*Our rings have the most LED's per ring in the market (60 LEDss in smaller ring and 69 LED's in larger ring)

*NO GAPS among the LED's. NO "BEADED" LOOK.

*RELIABLE & HIGH QUALITY EPISTAR SMD 3528 LED

*BRIGHTEST AFTERMARKET LED HALOS AVAILABLE IN THE MARKET. PERIOD. (I challenge anyone to locate something brighter.)

*COMPATIBLE WITH MOST 2006+ BMW models (EXCEPT FOR A FEW HALOGEN HEADLIGHTS). Contact us for fitment confirmation.

*TWO YEAR WARRANTY. We take care of warranty replacement ourselves from the U.S.A!

Rings look great. Their price makes them even more attractive.

I may eventually be interested. I'd want to do a lot of research on the DIY before cutting open these expensive headlight housings.

Do you also sell the acrylic eyebrow insert that goes up top? I find these DTM angel eyes look strange without them.

Do you sell just the rings for the E90 (not the DTM style but regular style)? I am doing the conversion soon and have been looking for a quality set of rings

Yes I have eyelids for both e90 and e92. Check out my photos, a few cars with DTm corona halos have eyelids. I also do custom LEd eyelids.

isnt your car an e92? just bake it open. no cutting required. and even if your headlights are permasealed, i strongly discourage you from cutting your lenses.

Well he fact that he had my headlights and could have kept them if he was a scammer. He could have sold them for upwards of $1200. I doubt he is going to keep a few deposits. I literally got my headlights last week back from him. Took way longer than what he had said, but I got em....

Lucky for you. Hopefully everyone else gets what they paid for as well. But I wouldnt trust him at this point, and all these people popping in to throw money at him blindly is sort of comical.

Yea, no one has heard from him. People are asking for deposits back. I wish he would come back. He was least expensive.
