Revotec Headlights... who's using these?

I've read some good things posted on here about these headlights, and they seem to be a good alternative to going through the trouble of the BHLM on my stock lights.

I've seen a couple posts from people stating that these need to be resealed, as they are not done very well from the factory. Can anyone comment on the difficulty in doing this?

Also, I see that the DRL rectangular lights inside of the housing are clear instead of yellow like on our factory lights. If you have daytime running lights, will these look the same, or different (lighter) in color?

Excellent, that's good to hear.

Time to get the DRL installed I replied to your post on the topic, let me know if you have any other questions.

On a side note: I get a kick out of your picture every time I read one of your posts. haha!

Can anyone comment on the DRL color? Does it look clear, or yellow just as the stockers?

It's clear, not the yellowish stock color. It will look the same lit as long as you keep the amber bulb in there.

haha, yeah, I would bet that had something to do with it.

In any case, it's irrellevant now. I did the Black Headlight Mod and couldn't be happier!!
