    The OEM lights should have some sort of DOT markings on them somewhere. Aftermarket ones likely wouldn't have them. That's probably where the trouble comes in.

    We don't have inspections of any flavor around here though

    Halo's look good man! I've always liked the looks of halo's.

    MMMM, you are right. We dont have inspections here either. Which im thankful for cause my truck and cars tint is not legal. But really, is the inspector that much of a cocksucker that he/ she is looking for dot markings?

    Dealer failed my car for inspection, and the list looked like this:

    Painted taillights
    Painted reverse lights
    Painted front turn lights
    Painted daytime running lights
    Non-DOT approved headlight housings.
    Non-DOT approved HIDs
    Parking brake doesn't hold.

    Sorry I honestly didnt even think of taking pics while she was all apart. I was kinda head down ass up trying to get it done before the storm rolled up.

    But I can say which wires I sodered together, because their is some slight wiring changes that need to be made.

    Headlight PS. Car headlight PS
    -blue(low beam) -tan (low beam)
    -white(high beam). -green (high beam)
    -tan (drl)(halos). -brown (drl halos)
    -black (ground - black/ black (ground)

    **** Cts v wiring harness has 2 ground wire for hids. So I this is why I sodered all my connections so that I could utilize both grounds. Most likey not necessary but I wanted to play it safe.

    Headlight DS Car headlight DS
    -blue (low beam). - yellow (low beam)
    -white (high beam). - green (high beam)
    -tan (drl/ halo) - purple (drl/halo)
    - black (ground). - black/ black (grounds)


    *** also plug off the washer hoses that were going to the stock headlights as the new ones will not have that option.***

    Hope this helps

    They fit really nicely. A little more gap then before but barely any. Compared to most aftermarket headlights im very impressed by these.

    Those look great! I'm about to order the same.

    By the way if anybody is interested in buying a brand new set (never been out of the box) of the ones below then check out me classified on here, bought them and changed my mind.

    I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out those lights aren't stock...
