    I'm going to be doing the HID retro-fit to my stock headlights soon and saw the 2010 land rover sport headlight. I really like the LEDs around the headlight projector.

    I did a quick photoshop to see what it looks like and what other may think. I deal with LEDs and would wire them into the parking lights. What does everyone think?
    On the left 5 LEDs
    on the right 8 LEDS
    I will be completely blacking out my headlights as well.

    should add some underglows and a tape on hood scoop while your at it...seriously not feeling it dude.

    if you do do it, make sure you use some quality LEDs that are not overdriven or anything... that would suck to have a failure and have to replace them again..

    White or amber are the only street legal colors you can use.


    I only use high end LEDs for my projects. I think of this as a modern day halo

    Go with the 8 LEDs. If you go with the five, you'll be rocking the Chrysler emblem!

    Well since we are on the LED subject, has anyone thought of putting an AUDI style light strip on the bottom with a retrofit? Maybe it's just me but I think it would look pretty sick... I would do it, but I am too broke right now to do the retro. Soon though!

    Well, it definitely would be a different look. The eight LEDs would be cool daytime running lights.

    You could do the Audi style light strip for $25 from TRS. You could always do the retro later on.

    ^^^ Those are alright, but I thought the Audi ones were tighter together no? And I just can't imagine it looking as good without the retro. I want a blacked out retro with this. Think it would look very clean...
