Couldn't decide what to do to them...

So I did all 3 thigns I wanted to do..
120mm ccfl halos
1' audi led strips
white LEDs to light up high beams (like on some Mercedes..)

Also redid the green LEDs.

Light up high beams.. come on w/ low beams:

Probably gonna have these all (except green LEDs) come on w/ the low beams, and get a 6 position switch to control each one separately, or any combination of the 3

Gonna bring the car out soon and put these in. Woo.

That's why the switch is gonna let me control which ones are on/ off.

If I want halos.. I can turn on halos.. audi strips.. turn those on.. both.. I'll have a slot for that, too!

Defiantly going to need to see these mounted up. Interesting having so many things in there, that's going to be a lot of wires running from there icon_razz.gif

I think either of these two would be cool. Take the LED strip all the way up on the bottom. Or across the top. That's just me. I just don't like how the "audi-strip" cuts off half way across. But other wise looks freakin awesome.

this is full of fail

first of all, audi strips look tacky if it's not factory installed.

second, angel eyes only belong on bmw's

third, you know why ccfl's are so cheap? because they either go out within a month of use, or they melt the headlight housings... people have reported fires starting in their headlights because of them

Yes well portholes only belong on Buicks, but people didn't like that on this car, so I figured I'd steal from other manufacturers icon_lol.gif

Would you like it better if I had done a projector retrofit?

So what you're saying is that if it doesn't come from the factory, it's fail. icon_confused.gif

That's what I'm catching on from the kid.

I agree some **** aftermarket looks like ****. But god damned! if it isn't factory, it's fail! his spray painted hubcaps aren't factory. F41lz!

I'm not trying to say that anything non-factory is fail, I'm just trying to say that LED's should only be on a car of a similar make. I'd understand if his car was an older Audi or something, but negative ghost rider.

Call me a **** or whatever you want, but I'm a very picky person when it comes to modding, and I'd like to voice my opinion. *crawls back into hole*

I thought they would look too high-tech... the Chrome and stuff on the car flows nicely iwth the headlights..

BUT, then a guy showed me THIS today.. after one is already back together and I decided to shut my wallet on the headlight project for now, haha.

I think you could combine the chrome and some blue to make a pretty sweet looking combo.

People have also reported fires by smoking in or around their cars, or forgetting injector o-rings....but they still do **** to them.

BTW the best non-factory option you can do to a car that he would have to classify as fail due to his statement.....turbo lmao.

ZOMG Dood that didn't come with turbo and you INSTALLED ONE!? Fail...lmao

I'm completely comfortable calling myself an ass hole, why would I care what you or anyone else thinks of me, ESPECIALLY on the internet.

If olverafam wanted a to know more about sources I could hook him up. Last I checked he knows english better than you, and should be able to communicate that to me.

sweet corvettecrazy, that would be really helpful if you hooked me up with some info on that. I saw some on ebay and I thought about buying them but some people told me to stay clear of ebay projectors or anything from china, thanks again bro.
