If it's white, it's not coming that way from the factory, so it's possible that it's being painted that way after the fact.

Hung, I'd like you stay away from my threads.

who is Hung? anyways, it's not painted white. it's white plastic. so i'm sure it came from the factory like that. i can break the backing to show that it's not painted if you want.

Hung is an employee I fired - it's MonkeyJuice, you may want to do some research - just search for "monkeyjuice" and Hung in the titles of a few threads, the results are somewhat interesting.

Like I said, I was just there 2 days ago, there was no white backing on any of the standard kits. The fact that you have pictures of what you have isn't really going to change what I saw at the actual location.

False statement like most of your post and facts.

I actually walked out on you to work for someone better. Just like all your other previous employees. They also walked out on you. You begged for me to stay when I gave my notice..

Back to the white backing on the angel eyes. Its white. If it was painted, then it'll come off easily with a sratch. The plastic backing is actually dyed white into the plastic. This is how it comes from Mycarr.


Ok moving along.... I can give some personal, rather then some sales tactic tips for more bias opinion. Just PM me

You are a liar and a thief. Stick to what you know best and stay out of my threads.

You stole from me. You lied to me. You screwed up so many customer installs due to your poor workmanship when I had you employed I didn't have any other recourse but to let you go. All anyone has to do is look at all the public threads posted here about your "dealings" when you were forced to do your own thing and well that turned out.

I can say this in public because it's the truth.

LOL, shall I call up all your customer you screwed over with products and installs and have them post? I'm sure they'll vouch for my work to fix your damage that was done by you.

I mean, this is actually coming from the customer!!! lol

good night.

you call that being on location? for all we know, you probably don't even have the mycarr kit and are basing your arguments/evidence on what they would look like in the ccfl housing (which does have the opaque backing as opposed to the LED ones)

Acutally. If you think about it. He probably does have the Mycarr kit. He just rebrand it with a new name. Sales tactic.

How come my response was ignored? I would like to know why you claim that other kits are inferior to yours while your kits do have the exact same circuit board effect?

I love how sponsors can easily dish out the slander, but when they are confronted with the problems with there own products it's like I never said anything. Or posted any pictures. This reminds me a lot of "My Ballast FAILED thread".

You should just break it and show that it is white all the way through. It amazes me how far a sponsor will go to try to deceive customers that their product is different and or better. In this thread we have disproved all his comments that his "chrome" backing does ANYTHING at all beneficial in this product. Ok sure it does one thing when you talk it out of the box it does look all purtty and makes you feel good inside until you install it and never see it again.

We are fine with them selling it like that as fair and equal products that they are. It is when they get into that there product is superior is when there is problems. They spoke against the "normal" mycarrs a couple of times in this thread. When there own product do the exact same thing.

1) I read these from both a regular PC and a small window'ed smart phone, can't see all the posts all the time, so take it easy with the accusations

2)
Each of the kits I've installed personally has not shown this effect that I describe as NOT being there.







While I see what you mean, I'd have to work with that customer to determine why it was visible, it shouldn't be.

why don't you show us a picture of the rings on OEM headlights that you've installed. those are pictures of DEPO P46's. the circuit board is recessed in the groove behind the clear plastic, so that's why you don't see the circuit board. also, you need to take some close up pictures of the shroud/headlights. you can't see it from that distance. nice try

Actually the first and last photos are not P46s, but good continuing attempts. You're welcome to come up, as mentioned previously.

I've uploaded a closeup again so you can see it.

Some of our prices are higher than others to support our retailers, some are much lower to discourage our competitors.

We'll always be willing to match product prices for like products as long as we have the chance to win your business.

If pricing is all you require, we can do this.
If pricing and service is all you require, we can do this as well.

Just by calling, you'd be surprised how competitive our pricing is on some of those same products you think we're higher.

i know they are, that's why in my reply i said that you needed close up pictures of the shrouds. from the picture you just uploaded, you can see the circuit board on the left side. though it's not that visible unless you're looking for it. that headlight doesn't seem like it's the stock lense color, seems like it's smoked or something. but that picture is darker than most.
