i like that they are leds who don't burn out.. and they don't have ballasts, and are easier to install... in fact, everything is better than the "standard angel eyes"... BUT, i still like the look of the predator chromium better and that's all that matters for me

These might be the solution I have been waiting for.

I have the Vorsteiner vented hood and I have gone thru three sets of ballasts and finally some of my rings burned out.

Even though I installed rain covers, water still finds its way in and it was getting to the ballasts no matter where I installed them.

They are on the site, this is a photos thread.
So we do not want to change it to a for sale ad.

Let's get some photos here.
I have some more I'll post later today.

Here's a recommendation for those of you who's initial reaction is "hmmm, no thanks".

Keep looking at them for a few hours, don't immediately post. Look at them again. They do "grow" on most people that have seen them but the initial is "SHOCK" don't like them.

Red is going to be a "group buy" for version 2. We have many versions planned, this is the first.

Kind of like the 325i Sedan E90. Then BMW released the 330, 335, and M3
This is a good, low priced solution. And it's going to last longer than anything.

But, let's focus on photos and videos

I don't think in real life you will like them initially. Not one person initially has liked them.

But as many that drop into our shop regularly have said, they have grown on a few of them. So much so, that they are now flying out of here as fast as the Chromiums.

I like the idea that they won't burn out. It'll have to grow on me a bit

That was the original concept, yes. the "other" guys can't tell you what their "concept" was, they had none. They just bought a product and sold it. Cool, but I prefer knowing and and dealing as the innovator

I disagree. In the 8 months of tests that we've had so far, not one failure and yes, we even have the original 2 prototypes that were built at over $500 a piece.
