I went ahead and bought one of the black housing spec d units
Shine much brighter already!
and SBK86, i also had issues making some of the mounts line up. What was more annoying to me was not the black tab at the top but the clear spacer tab at the bottom. It doesnt allow one of the mounting points to fully sit on the metal, even thought the headlight is fully seated. I just shoved the plastic rivet in there and it's holding fine for now.
However, one of my halo rings is already out..
Pretty sure one of my wires just came loose, but i'm going to be rather upset if it's a faulty unit.
