so for those who bought the chromiums, you basically just remove the ballasts and rings and replace with these?

i really want some angel eyes, but after my chromiums kept failing i just got pissed off and removed the fuse.

Hmmm...they are growing on me. I've got a burnt out chromium ring right now...may have to upgrade.


Umnitza, do these fit better than the chromiums? My outer rings have to sit at an angle due to the headlight shroud hitting the top of the ring. Do these have a slimmer profile?

There is an easy cure for the slight angle I've seen with installed.
It's best to push the cover out a little and trim it a little in extreme cases.

Also, bending the clips down a little before you install usually relieves the tension.

Affeminate pearl angel eyes for those of the limp-wristed persuasion.

With $1000+ invested in prototypes, hopefully that quality trickles down to the final consumer product! The appeal of LED's is that they are not supposed to burn out, but this hasn't been the case with LED tailights.

I agree on the quality.
But LED tail lights have been far more reliable than their halogen counterparts.

What's the difference between the "standard" color and 6000K? I'm assuming standard is 4300......yes?
