    Yeah I know haha. I went with the h1 after looking a pics of the beam pattern compared with the d2s. There's some good comparison pics on hidplanet. Also it depends on what kind of install you're willing to do. The mini's are super easy and fxr's are more tedious and invloved.

    I was in the same boat. For the price of the fxr's I got my minis and the halos that I really wanted and the install was easier. Also didn't have a good job then like I do now..

    Found a post from Matt on HIDPlanet in 2010 recommending that the 55w not be used in the D2S and H1.

    Of course, the thread got off track with people jumping to the conclusion that the post was only about the DDM bulbs since 55w is an option for the TRS pulldown.

    It looks almost like two threads were merged, with the DDM content dropped into Matt's thread.

    My only complaint with the halos is there is a tab on them where the wires are soldered and it sticks out like a sore thumb and is hard as hell to hide. They should really be soldered on the back of the ring, would look 1000x cleaner.

    Here's how I hid them. Had to trim quite a bit on the lip and inside of the shroud to compensate for the thickness of the wires.

    Edit: I painted the wires and the tab that sticks out black so it blends in with everything unless you are right up on it.

    They are bright as hell though!

    Yeah I would def not do it on the mini's. I've seen pictures of things melted and of the chrome burnt/peeling out of the reflector bowl. I guess they leave it as an option because some people risk it but why spend that much money on something to chance ruining them?

    Do you think its possible to bend that tab that sticks out with out damaging the led? Do you have any picture with your halos on the truck

    When I got mine in August the soldering was in the back on the LED rings, not like yours. Still was a pain to mount them on the shrouds

    Mount the LED halos on the inside of the shroud and let the openings in the shroud show off the shape.

    Badass in something like the G37-R or Gatlong Gun 2.0

    Will figure that part out when I get the kit and see what looks best with how i am doing my retrofit. How do you guys test the halo before installing? Like a battery?

    I though about that but there's no way to isolate the bend to the tab without clamping the actual led. The aluminum is very sturdy. Don't have any closeup pics of them but I can take some for you tomorrow. All the chrome is gone too so it looks a lot cleaner now (see sig).

    Halos only

    I would have much rather had them that way though. Just drill/trim holes in the face of the shroud and it would look so clean.

    They didn't aim straight back. They were parallel to the bottom of the LED so a trough had to be drilled for them. I kinda messed that up a tad and the wires are somewhat exposed there. No one notices unless you walk up and stare right at it.

    Took the battery out of my truck and put it in my living room floor haha. TRS sends test leads for the bulbs and ballasts too so I could fire them up also.

    Ahhh well at least I'm not the only one who had to get creative with a dremel!
