OHHHH Then the procedure is the same as mine. the rewiring for LEDs is a separate procedure.

yea 8000k looks perfect, but thats an hid kit?, is it harder to install on my sedan with the hid kit compared to just the bulb?, also why is the interior projector in the headlight on too?

i wouldnt do that kit in that thread, i just used that as a referance for color...id do LUX H8, hopefully the guy who makes them has fixed the issue that made it get recalled...just get a 8000k bulb set and if you want to do LED later you can, i believe you have to send your lights off and have mike take the housing apart and get installed

sorry i know im confusing you...OSS is a LED upgrade, he has to take apart your housing and do it, its not just a bulb

LUX H8 and GP thunder are bulbs

OSS is a LED upgrade that requires him to take apart your headlights to install them

I happen to like the "ugly, yellowish color".....Stock halos are by far the most visible in direct sunlight.

Too blue and they look rice.

Too white and you can't see them.

....but if you have to, OSS are really the only way to go. Angelibrights, GP thunders, RD's, etc are crap. I've tried them all.

Heard decent things about H8 but honestly.....I wouldn't even bother. Every single time I've used aftermarket angel eyes I've been disappointed.

yea I'm starting to get that feeling now after 2 months of having the Lux H8...it's visible at night but during daytime, you can hardly tell it's on...the inner rings look okay during the day but the outer rings are barely even visible..I'm thinking about just going for the OSS, but need to find a car to use for a week and plus I feel lazy and don't want to take off my bumper and headlights lol...
