Update: I have the FX-R 3.0 kit at my house waiting to be installed. Just waiting on a few other things from Khoalty to come in so I can do it all at one time, i.e. clear corners, new headlight lens cover, clear side markers, and new matte black grill. I did go ahead and order angel eyes from Khoalty as well so we will see how they work out.

I have the morimoto mini h1 2.0 and they have more foreground light than an FX-R. The FX-R has more background light, if you drive any kind of unlit roads and want to be impressed then get FX-R. I see they make the morimoto mini h1 6.0 now, might be worth checking what improvements have been made.

Yeah, the what's I've read. And I live out in the country so a lot of backroads where I live. I think the FX-R's will do just fine out here.
