*two year update*
Besides my initial problems, which i detailed in my first posts, there have been no problems to date. The halos and 4 leds work fine, my hids still work fine. There has been some condensation inside lately, that just could be because of the high humidity. I'm extremely surprised that these things have held up, especially in the michigan winters (high salt on roads and below 0) and the 90+ summers. I would definitely recommend for those who haven't bought these yet.
As a side note, sorry to all those people that had questions and pm'd me. A plethora of factors has caused me to stray and I haven't been keeping up. I'll stay on top if it from now on though.
send me a PM if you have any questions/suggestions about my mods
and rep if someone helped you! (wait until you hit 100 posts, anything before doesnt give points)
