    Personal preference. I like the more "alien" look of four projectors in each light.

    Has anyone figured out how to disabled the glowing logo? Hopefully there’s a good sale on Black Friday. I love how these look as opposed to the Morimotos, keeps the same dimensions as stock. and I can still utilize my @MESO customs headlight trim.

    Easiest way to see the activation sequence and impress your friends is to turn on your running lights. :D

    I never bothered with investigating further.

    so I just hooked mine up yesterday and had the same issue. Quick fix though. I ended up using the Drl harness though not sure if you purchased that with you lights. I can post pics in a bit but I hooked up all the lights with the corresponding factory harness connects. Then I ran the drl harness. In the engine compartment fuse box I used a pig tail to connect to the 10A INJ fuse. My raptor lights stayed on the 10A fuse for the right headlight and everything works fine light that. The DRLs now turn on automatically without needing to switch on and in high output mode.

    Roger that. I was following the only instructions I could find online which did not include connecting the yellow wire. Once I connected, that was it! Thanks!

    After reading the AlphaRex ripoff threads I'm glad I held off on these.

    Seems as a rebranding china product and under performs compared to Morimotos. I considered both at a small moment in time but held out.

    Gotch ya. I guess in all fairness most of the accessories are probably made in China. I really like the look of the lights, but at their asking price, just a pass for me. LED bulbs are cheaper.

    How’s the visibility of the road . I have dealt with aftermarket lights in the past and found the light doesn’t actually hit the ground correctly. Makes it worse than oem bulbs .light just goes all over the place and blinds other drivers .

    They are adjustable for height and lateral alignment. Morimotos are adjustable as well.

    Not to knock AlphaRex, well any more than I already have. The fact that they have horizontal adjustments may be a clue as to the quality. From my understanding, all major car manufacturers now only have vertical adjustments since the quality and technology of the headlamps has gotten so good, horizontal adjustments shouldn't be necessary.
