I was originally looking to put some angel eyes into the air intakes on my sard front bumper but I just could not get the look right. Anyhow after a bit farting about I managed to get them to fit in the cowl. Wired them to come on when the side lights come on.





















I will get some pics in the dark.

Interesting idea and one I've entertained before. What kind of units did you use?

Personally I'm not a fan of the blue-ish, cool-white LEDs. Do they come in warm white?

Thanks. 90mm ones like this, I presume?

A quick search doesn't immediately bring up a warm white 4500-5000k option to match my other bulbs, just the blue-ish 6000k which, in my head, are too closely associated with morons who have illegal HID glarefest retrofits [Sad]

Thanks!

Don't worry, I wasn't suggesting you were responsible for moron bright HIDs [thumleft] I'm just saying all the moron bright HIDs are 6000k [Rolling Eyes]
