I had all four on for about a day. I left the highbeam ones on and took the outers out. I only took em out cuz they were so damn bright. And it looks pretty cool too since most Bimmers around here have all four on.

I did mine a while back. Personally I feel like it adds a sinister look to the car. Super happy with the result. Originally got the idea from Dan and Ryan I believe.

Hi folks, I have a question: is it necessary to unplug negative/positive terminals of the battery while woking with headlights (removing them to glue brocken hinges)?
