New Lights-MTec Halos and Fogs-Jacksonville,FL

This is what you are forced to do on a Sunday when your pro football team is so horrible you cant even watch them for more than 5 mins of the first quarter! In case yall didnt know, it was the Jacksonville Jaguars with Luke McClown under center.
So i took this time to Put in MTec Halos as well as Mtec Fogs and replaced my front grilles with matte black.!
Attached ( if it worked) are pics of the finished product as well as some others with one side stock and one side with mtec lights.

I took my time on the install as i was still listening to the football games going on at the time and when something good happened (obviousoy not the Jag game) i would go inside and watch a couple minutes. I started at 1 pm and prob ended around 330 but i actually had problems with the screws holding the top grille inserts on and ended up just ripping them off. the screws had nuts incased in the inserts actually stripped and were spinning in the grille/hood insert and it would not unscrew. The halos and fogs were installed by first turning the wheel out and taking the fender liner off. from there i could get to both the fogs and halos. Takes longer to take all the screws out then it does to put fogs and halos in!!

The MTec halos were about 110 and the MTec fogs about 20 (bought from a fellow memeber on this site). I may eventuall get HID fogs but for now these work.

The halos are a "bulb" replacement, its actually LED made by MTEC, they replace the halogen bulb that comes stock. i have an E90 Pre-Lci and the ones i bought only fit that type of car. the bulb settup uses the plastic bracket found in the housing of the halo bulb, plug and play, the outside cap even fits back on and ther are NO error codes.,
the pictures do them liitle justice (damn iphone), they are actually really white and do not have any yellowish tint as some of my pics portray.
