This is a very easy upgrade to accomplish at the same time as you are installing the angel eyes. It only takes 1 extra step and I feel is well worth it.

For those that don't know what's up, we have removed the orange reflector and painted EVERYTHING except the high beam bucket black.

Angel eyes are available here:

I used krylon gloss black for plastic. Prepped the surface with a light sanding and sprayed 2 coats.








installed pictures to come

You buy the pizza and beer and we can do it to your lights...

Hey Matt,

I see you're in san diego and running the 55w low-beam kit. Are the 55w kits legal for lowbeams in California? I'm in Santa Ana and would love the extra output, but don't want any extra attention from the cops.

Also, if 4300k is the highest output in terms of temperature, why did you decide to go with the higher temp bulbs for your headlights? Purely aesthetic?

Thanks

This will be my one and only comment on this post, as we are going to keep it on topic...

HIDs are illegal if not equipped on the car from the factory. Period.

I think that 4300k looks dumb. Its egg-shell cream color. 6k is the best color.

I thought the same but thought some forward facing LEDs would do the trick and keep the look clean.

Looks nice, especially on a white car, I bet. I wish I had bought a white 3!

Has anyone seen angel eyes with headlight tint? I wonder how detrimental it would be to the angel eye light output - it has a lot of potential to look really cool.
