    Halo lights?

    I was wondering where most of yall get you halo lights and corner lights? I'm thinking about getting some dark halo lights with either clear corner lights or black corner lights? Also would like to see some pictures.

    Got all my stuff off of eBay.




    Halo isn't too bright when the headlights come on, but when (for my inistall) just my foglights are on you can see the halo.

    Do the halo bulbs ever go out?

    If so, are they replaceable?

    Ok I saw on ebay some black clear corners, and was wondering how would they look compare to the clear corners? And by the way my car is going to be painted black with an ultra z hood. So any pictures with the black corners would really help.

    Mine still work, but mine come on only when I turn on the fog lights. So I imagine if you have the halos come on all the time, that might shorten their lifespan a bit. But then again, they're LEDs, not bulbs. LEDs last a lot longer than bulbs.

    I spliced the wires for the HAlo into the wires that lead to the foglights; maybe 8" or so from where the wires hook up to the bulb assembly. Mine were kind of difficult because the stock wiring was pretty hard and I had to be really carefull when stiping the wire.

    So, are those ebay kits any good?

    If not, where's a good quality/relatively inexpensive site?

    I'm kinda pissed about my ebay halo's. I've only had them about 8 months and they have already started getting little spider crack's. They still look pretty clear but once you get close you can see all the little cracks.

    halos..

    I have some and haven't hooked them up yet....do you have to splice and hook them up to the fogs or is there a normal way to hook them up?

    lol there is no "normal" way to hook them up..only other way is to splice into your parking lights or run a seperate circuit with a switch into the cabin..too much work for some little LED's that arent even that bright.The only time you really notice them is when (at night) you hit the unlock or lock button on your keyless entry remote which gives it an elegant touch, but thats about it. As far as the corner lights: DONt get them; they condensate on the inside of the lens and end up lookin like sh**. If you are gonna go Ebay, get the halo headlights with the HID kit. My friend has them on his 35th ann. They look really good, but make sure you get the actual harness/ballast w/all connections (plug and play) and HID type bulbs, not the cheapo halogen upgrade that some are passing off as HID. I believe you can get the headlights and real HID kit (package deal) for about $300 on ebay. The headlights alone; I paid about $100-130 w/shipping.
