    Yeah fuzzy 7000k is not ghetto purple, they are bright white with a hint of blue. You're thinking of 12000k. The pictures match exactly the color in real life!

    The lights look fantastic on the car, I'll post pics soon.

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    The reason why I don't think anyone responded is because those pictures are a little . . . befuddling.

    The second shot is helpful, as it captures the rings and the entire black border (expert job on the paint). The other shots are at a weird angle--either too close to the front of the car, or too high up to show any distinguishing features. The reflection off the blacked out car and the driveway makes me feel like I'm looking at a sepia enhanced photo. Hoping you add a couple more pictures. I'm not sure that my CTS-V will benefit from the black paint job--I'm probably better off painting the eyelids and washer housings infrared. I suppose I could try doing the remainder of the border black, but that'd be a job for a professional.

    Holy elephantiasis emblem Batman! Is that the stock emblem? Car looks really good. This thread is going to hurt my wallet eventually.

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    Looks great. Some clarification please. Did you order the lights and the H7 HID kit separately? Some sellers are selling them as a package. Can you tell us which vendor you used to order the the lights. Your CCFL do look brighter. I think your pics are fine.

    I wouldn't bother with the bundled HIDs. The quality of those Chinese ballasts and bulbs is pretty poor. You usually don't get the color that you were expecting, plus, they're not as bright.

    When I ordered my kit with hids it came from USA. And was here in canada within a week, and definitly not cheap quality whatsoever. I'm extremely happy with mine. Came with "Beamers" hids. And our local performance shop sells the same brand.

    The kit is made in China. I discussed the grey border situation with the manufacturer.

    Not bad Price, however I paid the same and got my HID's from DDM which offers lifetime warranty on bulbs and ballasts. With that said would be nice to order whole kit from someone.

    It's look unreal if you blacked out the center of the Cadillac emblem and kept the chrome trim around it. Your car looks amazing

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    Thanks! I tried a few different versions of blacked out emblems, wasn't a fan and went back to all chrome. But may try it again some day.

    Hmm, I'm going to try this!! Would be easy to drop in a vinyl piece to see how it looks.
