Yes, on a different set. The ones i pulled had no resistors this is why i mentioned it. I guess my company cheaped but they didnt have them just LED's with positive and negative leads.

Just an FYI, they've changed the wiring setup on these now and I'm hoping the early burning out of the Led's is fixed. I bought a black housing set and noticed all the wires that are connected to LED's now run to a little box mounted to the back of the housing. There are 2 little black boxes (maybe resistors or something) one for the upper led's and one for the halos. I hooked everything up on my new ones tonight and everything looks great so far. I'll keep you guys updated, but I'm hoping these won't burn out. The led's on this set look brighter than my last set and the halos are bright white instead of blue looking.

The seller was cosmodynamic. I really do think they fixed them.
Otherwise why would they change the wiring setup?

Ok. Now I am really confused. Your HALO lamps are not cold cathode, there LED's in a plastic housing?

Finally got pictures up of mine. I replaced the originals with white ones but they weren't bright, so I ended up going ahead with red. Ithink they came out pretty nice. The best part is when the HIDs are on, u can't see them. Good when police are coming.
