Default omg angel eyes

So, I kinda always wanted angel eyes. Don't ask me why, I just think they look completely awesome. So I took the plunge and finally got some. They were a kit from Lightwerkz (PM him if you want a set). I also threw some LED parking lights in there as well.

Installation is pretty straight forward. I was going to take pics of the install, but there isn't really a reason. You just open your headlights like you were going to clear them, then glue the halos onto the inside plastic piece. I opted for hot glue because it's pretty instant and still pretty strong if you get the high strength stuff. Epoxy or JB weld would work too, but you'd have to have tape to hold it in place.

Next, you drill two small holes for the wires to come out of the headlamp assembly, pass the wires through and seal around them with the silicone sealer that your using to reseal the headlight.

To wire it up, I just tapped into the orange wire that's at the base of the steering column and comes from the parking light switch. You can turn them on from the switch, or they come on when you turn your car on.

One thing that scared me at first, was that one looked brighter than the other. It turns out they need to kind of "fire up", and it can take like 30 seconds, then they are fully bright. And they are pretty damn bright. I actually broke one when I was installing so I thought they may have been two different bulbs. The halogen bulbs now look kinda nasty, so I'm going to opt for a set of Osram silver stars (read the bulb faq thread) and see how they look with some bright whites in there.

Pics:





My camera doesn't pick them up very well, but you can get an idea. I may post up some better pics if I can get a hold of an SLR.

You used hot glue to seal them to your headlights? Won't they fall apart once the headlights are on, and the heat loosens the glue???
Looks dope though!

Looks excellent, I love it.

tips for others, no need to tap into the oragen wire under the steering column as that takes alot of extra time, simply tap into the harness on the lamp, and to put the wires out the lamp, no need to drill in the housing itself, just make to small holes in the high beam rubber cap and pull them through.

The hot glue is REALLY strong. I had to take move one around after I had glued it in because I realized I'd put it in wrong :doh: and getting the glue to move at all was a huge PITA. I even tried a hair dryer and ended having to use a knife to pry the stuff up and it was still damn near impossible. I guess if the glue fails I'll just epoxy them, but I'm really not worried at all.

You can get pricing on the kit from LightWerkz, and they look crazy at night. My only peeve so far is that the stock halogens look really off-white next to them, so I'll prolly grab some whiter bulbs.

They are pretty blown out in this pic cause my point and shoot kinda sucks, but you get the general idea. They are far from dim, that we can be sure of.
