Those look awesome It finally looks like we have an LED bulb replacement solution that is visible during the day, lights the outer ring as well as it does the inner, and isn't too blue in color. Can't wait for more pics/details

I have tested a lot of these products and I notice you are shooting your pictures head on. That tends to make them look bright when in reality they are not some times. Can you take pictures from different angles looking at the front of the car? From the look of it, they look identical to RD.

the uniform brightness is fine and dandy, but what about the real issue of dimming with the headlights on. Did you guys come up with a solution for that?

LED's don't dim when headlights are on. Only halogen.

+1. Any AE look good at that angle.

If your angel eyes are uniform at different angels, than this product is DEFINITELY promising. Till then, I'll be waiting for more pictures.

Thats actually incorrect - the way the coupes work is they actually modify the power of the car to allow the h8 bulb to only appear at half brightness. There is a lot of technical details behind this as to why it happens as well

LED's need a constant power source and even with with the average LED Driver the LED will flicker with you put the headlights on.

So that does bring up a good question - Has EAS figured out a way around the dimming problem when the headlights turn on.
