I might be selling them shortly, as I'm getting an M3 bumper.

I would say they light the road up a little better...they catch more of the reflection off road signs, so it is helpful.

Interested in mine? I might be selling them in the next few months.

What are the benefits of having those yellow light in the in the headlight housing; are they just for looks or are they better than stock 4.3ks

it's supposed to be better for fog and rain since it's less reflective against water and fog. but i see no point in it otherwise. just put them in your fogs when it rains or fogs and you're good to go
