Well they're supposed to be bright white, but for some reason whenever i take pictures (flash or no flash) they come out looking more bluish so i personally didn't even wire in the eyebrows. it's my understanding that they go out rather quickly and you have to pretty much replace those too so i didn't even feel like messing with them.

no it wasn't really hard luis360...just tedious. to be honest, once you get going with it you get better at it. i expected it to be more of a pain but it wasn't too bad.

that sucks. idunno, guess i'm just not that worried down here. cops just don't seem to really pay much attention to that kinda stuff...been drivin' around w/my 10000K h.i.d.'s for a while and no attention from the bacon yet, considering these babies are not exactly subtle...bluish purple, yeah...u get the idea.

I just finished installing the whole LEDs for the halos, the first headlight took me about 2 hours to get used to it and such, the 2nd headlight took 45 mins lol

one question, I am not going to be able to wire it up to my car for another week or two... is there anyway i can test to see if the LEDS are gonna work before I wire it up to the car?? maybe touching the wires ends to a battery or somethign?

did anyone else test their LEDs to see if they worked before they put em on the car?

you can do just that, touch the - and + leads to the battery. if you look at the last of my pics, it is a shot of the headlight sitting on top of the valve cover, here, it is being tested to work. you can also test the individual leds like this as well. remember long lead is +
