If you have own halogens but just want 'angel eyes ' can the Orem lights not be split and rings installed ?

These do look really good and would like to upgrade my newly purchased 2010 coupe with Halogen lights, but still not sure as there is mention of condensation and what about levelling and headlight wash. I would like HID and angel eyes but main reason for upgrading is light output as the halogen lights just are not that great.

I had mine done and had some condensation to begin with, but it is getting less and less each time, I guess due to the air drying out with use.

I had mine done too, first on the forum to do so, second generally in the UK to do so, condensation came and never went. HRF blame the coating on the lights (PU Coating) being faulty. They will make me a brand new set, using the parts from the original set they made at a discounted price but custom lights have dropped down on my to-do list due to the issues and how much I've spent on them so far.

I know people have had many issues with condensation, but even after all the recent rain we have had my HRF depos are doing well.

I could just be lucky or they might have changed their process for the split and sealing them.

After all I've got friends with company BMW's less than a month old with condensation after the recent rain in both xenon and halogens.

Splitting Depo's is a different process to splitting the OEM's. They can split the Depo lense from the case, with the OEM ones they can't so they cut the case and split them that way and then plastic weld them back together. They won't split OEM lense and OEM case. Granted I am probably just unlucky with mine and I used donor lights, but I didn't expect to still get condensation. People still need to be aware that condensation can still happen and probably will do so before it settles down.

Hi all,

Can anyone point me in the direction of a 'how to' for splitting depos v2 headlights.
As in, is the best method to put them in the oven, what temp/how long?

I have the dreaded condensation in drivers side. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

All lenses will get some degree of condensation at this time of year (in the UK) due to the slightly damp and chill conditions.

It's just a factor of how quickly the condensation goes when you start driving and use the lights.

Depos are more prone to condensation than most brands, when I had them fitted (a few years ago now), I first dried them out with a hairdryer (car was in my garage at the time) and drilled a small ventilation hole in the back cover (drill upwards, you don't want water to get in....). That cut it down quite a bit but I don't think you'll ever get rid of it completely.

I'd speak to Toby_E82 and ask about him doing the business retro fit - for £390 you get almost OEM bi xenon super dogs dangly depo V2 with HIDS.
