LED Halos

Now before you shoot me down for not staying stock original.. wanted to share the switch to halos. I was on the fence for a while about whether I do halos or not, then my lights needed replacing so decided to pull the trigger.

So I upgraded the light harness and installed the halos so that they would come on with ignition to now have DRLs. The lights are much brighter at night and the multi colors are there just for show (i mostly keep them on white).

Iím still undecided whether I keep them or go back to normal headlights or disconnect the halos. Like it or hate it?

Not my thing, but it is YOUR car. If they turn your crank, that is all that matters.

Not for me. I like bright headlights, but the halos are a distraction. (Shouldn't the Turn Signal lights be Amber?)

I am a concours guy so they are not for me. There are a lot of advantages to the brighter LED head lights. I converted some Ford script head light that had burned out to LED for our unrestored HCS that we drive. They are certainly better.

They are both. They switch to amber when turn signals are on.

Nice! I really like these. The brighter lights for sure are the reason I went down this road. Figured Iíd try the halos out.

Yeah Iím still on the fence to be honest. Part of me likes it for the DRLs, not necessarily for the colors. But yeah, still undecided whether I keep them or not.
