My wife just emailed me pics of my lights that just arrived. Will see if I need the adapters or anything else when I get home. I will also post up some pics installed and note anything about the quality and fitment for you guys. I have kept contact with the seller and if anyone is interested after my update let me know [email protected]

It looks like the wiring for the Angel eyes (halos) are from the bottom so if not used, won't be seen. I don't know how well they are sealed or if you might want to throw some silicon on for good measure......

Oh and I didn't pay for them until monday or tueday(05-07 or 05-08) and received them today (05-11) so he sent them right out.

Look like what are being sold on Ebay.

Anxiously waiting to see them installed!!!!

They are the ones that are on EBAY. I set up a small discounted group buy. The thread is down a couple. They are $390 + 40 s&h on ebay. He is selling to us $350 + $40 s&h (no tax). If you are interested email me and I will have him send you an invoice [email protected]

So if you already have factory Xenons and want to continue with Xenon lights what do you need. I've read most of the previous threads but was really hoping someone would get this all figured out before I proceeded.

Me too but I guess I'll be the first to try with the xenons. My projectors should be here next week. The bulbs are H1 so, as I understand it, our current xenons will not work. I think I will initially hook them up with the regular H1 bulb (I hope it comes with them). If you want to go back to xenons, you'll have to buy an aftermarket HID kit for the H1 bulbs. I don't know how hard the HID kit is to install, all these lighting options are new to me, all I have ever done in the past is replace bulbs when the burned out!.

Has anyone hooked up the "angel eyes"? Where do you wire them up to?

Well I'm sheepishly looking forward to you figuring it out. I knew that they required H1 bulbs but I thought you could just buy H1 Xenons and be good to go. However, I have the same experiene with this as you do, just replaced burned out bulbs. Thanks for blazing the trail.

Please don't get 10,000K bulbs. You will have decreased illumination and they look like ass.

Agree 100%

4300k to 5000k max

Beyond that light out goes down and Blue/purple goes up.
Actually liiegal to fit over 5000k in some countries. Thats prob why over 5000ks are cheaper on Ebay.

OK. All it was was apicture of the bulbs for H1 application. I figured it would help figure out FOR SURE if he would need a whole kit or could just buy bulbs.

I am looking at 5000k bulbs or maybe it was 4300k I know it was 1 or 2 abouve 3000k.

I am fitting the lights and taking pics right now, without HID. I just got back from the dealer buying the adapters.....$32.50 US each
