So it turns out, it's quite hard to take pictures of lights at night. But I have a few that are decent enough to share. I made an album on imgur so it'd be easier to share and my post wouldn't be gigantic.

Yes, there is a dent in my hood. I'm convinced the car was in some sort of accident before I bought it. Or the moron who had it before me bent the hood to give the snorkel for the factory airbox more air.

I absolutely LOVE the halos. They look amazing and really turn some heads. I'm still waiting on my H9 HID bulbs from DDM to arrive, so I'm using some simple Phillips H9 bulbs in there. The ones they shipped with were crap and literally stopped working after 15 minutes of use.

I had stuck some hi/lo H13s in the stock housings that I got from DDM about a year ago. I haven't had any issues with them at all. And neither has my dad in his Miata (he had proper projector housings). But like all things, there are good and bad experiences, and your mileage may vary.

Thanks for the photos, I like the Halos they are sweet, they give the car a more sporty feel.

its the ones from the pictures everyone has been posting the red with LED and chrome bottom. the connectors dont match up at all. I thought i was crazy and missing something so i had a friend look and they def. dont match up. my stock one had three holes. the one on the new light has a rectangle with a metal tab on 3 of the 4 corners. no way they will fit.

Seeing how this is your first and second post to upload a photo you will need a host sight. Flickr works real well and setting up an account is as easy as getting a yahoo email. Take a photo upload it to flickr. Then while looking at your photo there is a share button in the top left corner if i remember right. Then there is the choice of html or bbcode. Copy the whole thing then come back to this thread. Click on the mountain box at the top of the comment box then paste in the pop up window and done. Then we can see what you are trying to describe
