angel eyes in winter

i just bought predator chromiums and was wondering whether it would be smart to wait and install them next spring instead of now as winter is coming along.... ?

imo, i dont think it'll be problem especially since we dont get harsh winters anymore and if you think about it, it will have to go through next winter anyways...

but just wanted to see ur thoughts on this

Did you get the cold weather upgrade?? Put them in ASAP. They dont light up right in the cold temp without the upgrade. Easy to install with all the info on this site. I couldnt wait to install mine!!!!!

The cold weather will not damage the Chromiums at all. You may experience cold start issues whereby one or two rings are dim at first but pop to life when you start the car.

I shouldnt have said they dont work right without CW upgrade. Mine would take too long to light up. With the upgrade, they come right on in any temp. I didnt like looking at them with one dim and one not working for 20 min. With the new ballasts they work perfect all winter.
