Ok so after atleast an hour of trying to get them in I did it....................I hope these dots Explain how much I like them because these things are BRIGHT. For the price these things are way overrated, and are easily comparable With LUX angel eyes IMO. At first I couldn't get the OEM angel eye on the left out cus I was twisting it out, when they both twist to the right. Finnaly after doing it I had to jimmy the new ones in and that took patience since they are so big and the headlight compartment is so small, but the hardest part is trying to twist them back in.(they do not lock in as solid as the OEM eyes do, so don't let a little wiggle make you think they aren't in) once you can't twist anymore and no part of the bulbs are actually drastically not attached they are in for sure. For me the whole procedure wasnt bad for only takin off the top cap of the headlights, yet again I am sixteen year old boy so my hands definatly where an advantage. Hope this little DIY descriptions helps for those of you who bought them, and the pics aren't that good and can't capture the light that well but I will take some more pictures in the morning so you all can see how bright they actually are even during then day!

Oh and I also bought the V shaped led side markers from eBay and they look amazing!(I had to get rid of those gross yellow turn signals) You can't really see the V in these pictures tho. I am also expecting some white led turn signal bulbs for the front of the car(PY24W) and I will post picks when they are installed ass well. Even had time to put in my carbon fiber looking side reflectors!

Great, thanks for the report. How about how they look and brightness compared to OEM in direct sunlight?

Looks great.

Would you mind posting them in our for sale thread for other customers to see. I'm sure they would appreciate a "real" customers picture.

Wow they are really bright and I am very surprised that the outer rings are well lit by these AEs.

Do these dim when the head lights are turned on?

My passenger side AEs went out this weekend so I'm looking for some new ones.
