Welp, add me to the bandwagon jump crew
Actually I bought these early this year, but went back/forth/back/forth on whether I made the right decision on getting the Black Line (smoked).
My friend pointed out the fact that i have enough accents on the rear of my car that he thought it would play. I saw some pics of White F30's with the Black Line, but it just wasn't the same. So i made this video to show specifically what a Mineral White F80 M3 looks like with the Black Version. Enjoy!

Thanks for the video and post. I'm considering a set of these, but in red. My F80 is in Silverstone. Am worried that in smoke black, it may look a little too "tuner style" for me. My first car back in 2001 was an Acura Integra and I got a similar styled light "Altezza" style, and looking back - it was a little too ricey. It has to be a certain vehicle and mod style to pull it off and I think yours does.

Did you get yours from Abdul? How do warranties work if they come up? Do we have to go through Abdul?

Yes unfortunately, and the issue is exacerbated in direct sunlight. I've driven behind the red V2's and the turn signals are no where near as bright as the OEM turn signals

Happy to help! Yeah I think it takes a certain color car to pull of the black version (best on white or black cars IMO) Small world! My first car was a 2002 Acura RSX-S with a Jackson Racing Supercharger I completely get the conundrum with the color choice though

TakeOne The lights look awesome on your car. I've sold many blackline taillights. They are popular on light colored cars. But I've never seen a video till now.

Update:

I have 12 Blackline taillights and 10 Red taillights in stock in Michigan.

Since Amazon sold them for $400.00 (Amazon sellers are notorious for running small businesses out of business by making no profit on their sales), I'm going to bring the price down to $390.00. Punch in promo code "OLED30" at checkout to get the discount. I compete to make sure that I have the lowest prices on the internet and I'll continue to strive to stand by this principle.

Here’s a comparison video I took today. You can be the judge… IMO I don’t think it’s a deal breaker. I thought they were ricey for the longest time, but decided to take the plunge and think the mod is lovely for the price.

Yes they blink an orange-ish color due to the yellow light and red housing color. The manufacturer VLAND is the same regardless whom you buy the V2s from. I would have bought them from Abdul, but he was out of stock at the time.

Thanks for the video.

So all V1 or V2 lights look like that in the daytime? That's not a defect? That might be a no-no for me then. I have been on the fence about this for a while. This might push me back over.

I haven't seen the V1s in real life, but I've seen two sets of the V2s in sunlight and the turn signals are dim. I have not been rear ended yet so not a deal breaker so far
