    I think those are retrofitted lights with "I wish I was an Audi" leds added to the bottom of the housing.

    Make your own... There's a feeler on a group buy through the retrofit source right now.

    Retrofit your headlights and black out everything in the process. So much win! :thumbsup:

    I thought about that, they're already blacked out.

    Afraid of screwing something up....

    I'd stick with HIDs but I blind people and feel bad

    You can black out the reflector bowl also with projectors and lose the kiddy plug and play HID kit that you're still running even though you know it blinds people...

    The BHLM is simple, if you're nervous, buy a second set of headlights, modify those, then swap them and sell off your old ones. Your light output will be much much better than what you have now and no more blinding oncoming traffic.

    Yeah I have a regular set of headlights OEM stock ones I thought about trying it or just paying someone to do it.

    I'm not good with that stuff haha! Engines and suspension got that but little detail stuff eh

    Gotta go outside your comfort zone sometimes though right? Maybe I'll look into doing it myself!


    O also I don't drive much at night, that's why I haven't changed them already.
