thanks, got them from DDM tuning. When i ordered them smoked i didnt know the whole lens would be smoked, i would have liked only the clear part to be darker. Or this less smoked, but its not bad.

ps. Anyone have one ccfl halo ring for sale, all i need is one??

I replaced the steering quibo, installed new soft bumpstops in the coils, and installed new rubber mounts on my stabilizer bar at a 160k miles. What an amazing difference that made the handling of the car! The steering is so tight, it's like new.
