They look cool but they suck brightness wise..I tried adjusting them and they are all over the place. I just mine off and went back to my stocks and just smoked them out. Their so much brighter. I have mine for sale if anyone wants them

I heard that a lot but i wasn't too worried about that. I don't do too much driving at night and when i do i live in a place where the streets are pretty well lit. But putting that aside is there any way to make them brighter? A different bulb maybe?

It helped in looks yes. But like I said the aiming mechanism inside the lights is horrible. You try to adjust the beam and it just goes everywhere. I used my fog lights as headlights for about a year because the headlights were not bright at allbbecause the beams could not adjust. As far as looks go yes they are good. It turned alot of heads, everywhere I went people would look and even point haha they are definitely nice. But if you are concerned about lighting up the road then nope. And if your not concerned about the road brightness then get them,

You sure they weren't pointing and laughing? I know I do at halo lights on a mustang.

Thankfully you were wise enough to ditch them.

I had mine spliced into the parking lights. I had them togetjer with pigtails but ghey kept coming loose and the lights would lose power randomly and that was very annoying. So I jjst decided to splice it in with the parking lights. After that I never had a problem with them.

Im going to do this in the next couple weeks....Mine are still sitting in boxes in my garage. Hope you get the parking light issue fixed! Sale price made me jump on these for sure. I ended up buying a ddm HID conversion kit to go with it, so we shall see!
