No upgrades my friend Not only will the LED's be different, but the power unit as well, and that is a large majority of the cost right there. Your best off selling your old ones.

LUX 2.5 - DO Not Send Me PM's YET!!! please these are still a ways away....



As for the CF Headlights - i know one person already wants this done to theirs - "tissot" i'm working a deal with him now to get this all worked out.

My god that's an amazing job you did there. :rocks:
Would you mind posting up a DIY on opening up the headlights? From several posts I've read, it's nearly impossible for the average person to open these up.

Longtran has a DIY up for this already - even though it is the halogen ones. I will try to work on a Xenon one because it is slightly different.

Damn...screw the CF headlights (which look great but not something I will ever be able to do myself)...I'm more excited about the "leaked" news about Lux 2.5!

Great job mds82!

I'm sooo getting myself one of those Lux 2.5!
