Clear Head Lamps

Whats the deal with the clear head lamps instead of the orange? THEY LOOK REALLY GOOD. Is that an accessory you can have installed? Whats the cost?

I'm getting my euros today. And they're not cheap. I doubt you'll find them for the less then $1300 with the AHL feature. Plus installation. Vinyl overlays arent more then $50

Silver CF overlay ftw. Closest you will get to euros without the big pricetag.

Good good. They seem to be more pointed up then my old ones, Which is a good thing, it's like the brights are on all the time.

You can adjust them. You just need a + screw driver. Point the car to a wall, and then pop the hood. The adjustment is right next to the wiring harness plug.
