That is exactly what I mean. Even the one that is full has a break in it. The ones from 180 has no break it it at all. That why I liked them so much. If I had to choose just looking at them, it's a no brainer

My car is the white one OP posted. To answer everyone's concerns over warranty, here is what the owner of 180 said to me:

"We warranty LED work for 6 months and paint/condensation for 1 year."

I would never, ever, get work done like this without some kind of warranty. I don't care if you are friends with the shop or whatever, you need some kind of post purchase support.

Side note: had my lights for a month already and they are going strong as ever with no issues. I personally like the 180 logo inside, but to each his own.

Nice there's a 6 month - yr warranty. Not really much but better than nothing I guess. Yes the rings Jay uses aren't full circle in one halo, neither are the oem though. The rings used are umnitza. He'll put in any rings you want but that's not really the point your making and that's fine. To each his own and all my facts are always straight. I was just pointing out the obvious downfalls as they are on the forums already.

Steve I've actually read the same things about them. Maybe since then they changed it but back then I heard about the same no warranty bs. That's why when Jose got me a hookup with Igor I never followed up. Like I said this was a while back. They might have changed up their warranty. Also you know them personally right? So that might change the warranty work also. I'm sure they will try and find some fault in the headlight to deny warranty just like the dealerships so they don't lose money.

the question is how much would repair cost after the 6 months period ?? even with oss 1 year warranty - at time its questionable for me ......i dont want to end up with a faulty unit that last a year for 500-700 dollars

180 is located on McDonald ave right ?

Oh. I also decided on gloss black with the projector housing brushed aluminum metallic silver to match my rims and trim on the car. It's already Matte black but my grills are black chrome and it would accent it much better if its shiny.. Well see how it goes.

She busted me on my way back to the house. When I pulled into driveway she was in the backyard and saw my car with no bumper and no headlights


I told her I lost it on the way home

Then my friend you haven't seen these in person because you would say otherwise. OSS are nice but the led rings are too spread apart and the led ring is not complete circle and missing at the top on the outer ring. I am not a lighting guy at all, but when I saw them the other night, I needed to get them as it looked mad hot. I don't do much cosmetic mods as this will be the last for awhile. Everything I install on the car has been research and deemed the best, at least IMO though! Lol

What about your engine bay lighting accent? The blue and white?

I am not getting those stripes. Just blacking them out and that's it. I agree I don't like the way it looks either

i would say go gloss black. i think the color match is little overkill and will look tacky.
