Those look sweet on your car! Hmmm, those are nice & bright. If I could swap the LED to orange like my current set, I'd definitely do those! Wonder if those side LED's would look good in orange as well.... Hmmm......

Honestly I never been a fan of Aftermarket headlights but these look good. I dont like the LEDs on the side at all but I guess I could just not hook them up. The only reason why I want to upgrade is because of the projector

I said the same thing also however since I got PCSed to England and I have to abide to England road regs, I have to have an extra source of light other than my headlights and DRLs in operation during at dusk/night hours.

Instead of some random Brits hacking on my electrical wires and hooking up a toggle switch inside my car i hooked up these silly LEDs and not get charged for the labor and fine.

The light beam is pretty straight though, have you switch yours to HID kit?

What bulbs do they use for high and low beam? Good looking lights and a good choice for us guys who have lights too far gone for sanding and polishing.

H1 for low beam, and the original 9005 high beam bulb.

I have a 5000k 35W H1 HID kit in my Sonar headlights. I really like them. The HIDs are worth it for sure (I got a Xentec slim digital kit from ebay for like 80 bucks about a year ago when I got these lights, never fail to turn on, and that is off the stock harness).

I don't like the side LEDs too much either so they are disconnected. I run the halos all the time though, I actually like them though I wish they were brighter (not really visible during the day).
