    Are coming around good - have 1 done today and will do the other tomorrow. I didnt connect the halo's because thats too bmw'sh. I did connect the lower led's to the running light. The projector is soooo much cleaner looking in terms of throwing light. This will help alot in not trying to blind people on the highways...will look even better with some of the 'mad' eyelids i have laying around.

    ^ is the one i bought - came with a high quality 6k hid kit to boot.

    And meanwhile i was at it I routed the horns to under the passengers headlight. Perfect location too - only need to use the bolt already in the frame...used both of the horns/brackets on the one bolt just spiraled the horns so they'd both fit on it.

    The ones on the right were also ebay but just blacked out looking. Made in china HORRIBLE quality - one wouldnt adjust more than a 1/4 and within 2 weeks it also built up so much water than when i took that one out it looked like a fishbowl. These new ones are made in taiwain ( better than china ) and you can tell the plastic is better quality and the lens is a good amount thicker...

    Not too mention that because of the arc of the led's it makes the fenders look alot bigger

    The projector on them is sick - I didnt notice it but when looking at them from different angles they shift into many different colors - kinda like a merc's /acura's projector. This tells me that they also used a decent quality projector

    I should get it all done by saturday - The drivers side is a massacre as I recently had an alarm installed and the installer for god knows what reason seemed to have drawn power from my high lamp wiring / didnt use loom on half the wiring and just twisted and electrical taped the connections...ugh - the saying always goes " if you want to have it done right you'll have to do it yourself "

    ^ thanks for the info toll - for now i'll stay with these and see how they do. Although i'm not a fan of the halo's AT ALL I do like how they make the projector appear bigger because of the more round surface area.

    Those look awesome! I've actually been looking at them online also, but haven't pulled the trigger. I may have to sooner than later now.

    Instead of using 2.5" projectors (like above) use 3" ones like from a TL. You won't need Halo's then.

    3" ones

    those are sick bro...nice job...

    I would have gone retro using the same 3" projectors from the acura TLs...but my buddy hooked me up on a killer deal for the projectors I got now...

    maybe later down the road I will upgrade again and do a full retro projectors setup like yours...:D
