    I like it! Good taste, did you use just a straight black vinyl? I've got some black carbon fiber lying vinyl around somewhere I could try, again another great mod idea! Haha I'm copying all your ideas!!

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    Does anybody know what the high beam bulb in these is? It's not the 9005xs that I ordered... :/

    Thanks for the reply. Looks like the high beam in my SRT8 Jeep is a regular 9005. Maybe I can use these there so they don't go to waste.

    ...and they do work. Really easy swap there with plenty of room for the different angled connector (stock is just 9005). I'll have to wait until night to see how they look with the HIDs.

    As for the V lights, I hooked one up as is and it looks like the low beams don't work wired as is. Or could it be I still had the other side stock light hooked up. Electrical stuff and me don't get along very well... The halos are really bright though (I tried to take a picture with my phone but it didn't work.

    Had to order new high beam bulbs and still waiting on the DDM HID kit for the low beams.

    You have an SRT8 to compliment your V! Jealous...

    Re: Cts v dual halo aftermarket headlights.

    I am interested in making this swap myself. Just want to be clear on what you guys have ordered to acheive this install properly.

    You order the 6000k HID kit that is on ebay, and this comes with only the headlights and halo's for around $300.

    Then you must order an aftermarket set of HID's, namely the 35w 6000k from a place like DDM to replace the lowbeams? Which type of bulb? How much are these?

    The factory high beam bulb works fine in the new housing?

    Wire it all up as previously described in this thread and you have new housings, new low beam HID's, and the factory high beams for around $350?

    Some of that information is right there in the link. Basically, you're going to be buying yourself a custom set of H7 HIDs. The high beams are H1s. They might be the same as the factory bulbs, but I won't know until my set arrives next week. You'll have to wire everything yourself. Personally, I don't recommend anything above 4500K, because you're trading brightness for what usually is considered a ghetto/modder blue that looks cheap. All told, you're probably looking at $375 if you order 55W DDM HIDs.

    Just would like to say ( completely opinionated) but 55w have been known to burn lenses and projectors. And makes them foggy. I'd stick with 35w. And 6000k is more of a white. Definitly extremely bright. I had 10,000k 8000k and now I'm at 6000k and absolutely love it.
