90mm Angel Eyes - $30.00
Audi LED strips - $25.00
High/Low beam Harness- $25.00

Total: $240.00 w/ Free Shipping.

I did get my own HID bulbs from the company I deal with and they look really nice from the pictures I took. They are 55w 6000k. Installation wasn't hard. I say for me personally out of a 10: 5 max. If you have some knowledge/skill of a dremel and you also have patience, then this project is cake.

Yes sir. My package with the high/low beam harness and a replacement halo ring should be coming in today. But won't be soon with the pics because I need to install the LED strips, halos and re-seal the lenses up. But once all that is done and installed back onto the truck, I will definitely post up pictures (actually whore out) pictures of the high and low beam function.

i'd really appreciate that. i've seen these projectors installed before, but every time i or someone else asks how well they're mounted, the thread dies. i feel like you could torque it down kind of tight with a wrench and use some loctite or something.

HAHA. I just got off another thread about this. I'm actually trying to get some help on aiming and what not because right now I have my heads all the way up just to barely see the light on the road. It's not correct so again, going to get some help. If the aiming doesn't work, then I'll have to somehow take the lenses off the headlights and re fix the projector (praying that I don't have to) .

Update 5/10/11

So since aiming didn't go so well, I had to go and re heat some new headlamps (actually my old ones that came on the truck) and worked on those. I cut both holes the same size and then painted them, worked the projectors in place to get the aim correct and then installed the shrouds with halos on and then seaedl em all back up. They look awesome and the output is very nice. I can see a whole lot more than regular stock housings (no offense) and the cut off is beautiful. Anyways here are some output shots (better in person but will get more soon).

Low Beam



High Beam

Very nicely done. That cost is a lil steep but the look is amazing.

Thanks everyone! Yeah the cost was a bit steep but I had the funds to afford it. Then I had the patience and time to do the project and it took me three tries and five opened headlamps to work on to get it just right. I'm glad I did it!
