Yup, those damn dealer plate covers.... i'm probably getting a bra for my car so i'm gonna take the front licence plate off for good. I'm not a big fan of bras, but since my car is black it shouldn't look too bad...

I live up in Niles - that's like 10 miles away from chicago

Next thing i'm gonna do is tint my taillights and windows - goin for the all black look. I want to drop my car and get 17" gunmetal rims, but i'm not gonna do that until after winter.

GO POLSKA!!!

hopefully this half-assed wiring diagram makes sense...

The positive wires of all four angel eyes are connected to the load terminal of one of the switches; the negative wires are all directly connected to the negative terminal of the battery. Same goes for the two outside reflectors. I am running relatively heavy gauge wire from the positive and negative terminals of the battery which i'm using to feed the switches to complete the circuit.

The two inside reflectors i hooked up to the stock wires - so when i turn the lowbeams on with the little stock knob, those two reflectors light up. The reason i made a separate switch for the outside reflectors is so that i could run all four at the same time... i dont need or use highbeams where i live so i completely eliminated them.

it's not hard to do... just have to take your time and keep everything neat and clean - don't wanna short-circuit anything...

As for how bright they are.... it's an extremely huge improvement over the stock lights... u just have to play around with them in order to align them properly... i still need to raise mine a bit b/c they dont shine far enough.... with 4 running at the same time it's like driving in daylight - and that's with the stock bulbs (the bulbs u get with the headlights). I bought some new xenon ones... i'll c how bright they are....

aight... gotta go to work
PEACE!

ehem. there is no stock head light picture? how am i saposed to judge. Btw my stock headlights *not bulbs* look just as bright, if not brighter..i have no problem at all with night driving ( except in half assed lit up areas) I think those headlights are designed for looks, not lighting performance.

cia on atx?
looks like a XHAI *extreme hot ait intake* its pinched between the trani and the radiator :shrug: It is the best ive seen on a atx so far though..



Good job anywase. they look good on your 6.

they are brighter than MY stock headlights... and that's all that matters

The intake is the new hotshot for atx CIA

And it's ceramic coated so that heat from the radiator shouldn't matter too much

Did you clean your manifold or something? What did you use?
