    New style headlight on eBay

    Anybody seen them? I'm on my phone so I can't post a link but thought I'd share. Just look up CTS-V headlight and you'll see them. They have an LED strip built in and halos. Not sure I like it. Would like to see some in a V. They have black and chrome. Thoughts?

    I like them, but I'm not sure about the high beams. They look too recessed to actually do any good. I'm might get some and put an HID kit in them from DDM and sell the chrome set that I have. I'm blacked out everywhere else and I think these will look great.

    The Raven might be able to pull it off but I'm not liking that LED strip at all.

    Re: New style headlight on eBay

    I'd be interested to see a head-on shot, but from what I see in the pictures above, I think they look ugly. The curved LED strip doesn't really match up to the angular body lines, and the silver ribbed reflector on the high beam (?) on the bottom stands out too much against the blacked-out body of the light.

    I wonder what the lights are in the big, top picture? Those aren't CTS lights - that projection towards the middle of the car doesn't exist on our lights.

    Is it just me, or does the shot on-car look photoshopped?

    I like the Black one's with the dual halo's but not a fan of the other two either. Yes the pics are definately photoshopped it looks like the light is too big for the car.

    I like the overall design of the lights and I think on a Raven the black could look great. But, like most aftermarket ones, the LED strip reeks of cheap. I honestly think light pipe is the way to go for accent lighting. Looks great on the CTS.

    Interestingly, compare the 2012 Audi A6 and A7. They came out at almost the same time yet one has accent LEDs and the other(the A6) had accent light piping.

    ----------

    A6 lights...





    ----------

    A7 lights...

    I love how they are "Performance Auto Lights" and aren't in HID...

    Re: New style headlight on eBay

    I have to say I am a fan, besides, it's half the cost of the kind with 2 halos. Does this work with stock HIDs? Has anyone tried them yet?

    Re: New style headlight on eBay

    I don't know... the LED ones don't really flow with the vintage of the 1st-gen CTS. The new ATS has the light pipe headlamps, but the light pipe is much more integral to the design than these retrofits. There would have to be some LED foglamps for the headlamps to 'work' for me.

    I'd pick the dual-halo lamps if they weren't so expensive... and worked with the stock HID setup. Near-$500 is much more worthwhile in performance mods.

    the dual projector one looks good but not working with HID is a deal breaker and 500 is seriously expensive!

    The projection part doe exist on cts lights, it just cannot be seen once installed. Not a fan of what i see pictured but would like to see them in chrome.
