    And there is condensation inside the headlight from the rain. I'm not liking these too much right now
    Thanks for the info...sorry to hear about the poor quality. Did both headlights have condensation?

    I sent k2 motor an email, because this is just wrong. First they claim the LEDs are the Drls and they are not. Then the condensation issue. It's so much worse now. I've uploaded too much today or something so it won't let me upload more pics. The condensation is covering the entire headlight now. Hopefully they will send me another pair that have been sealed a lot better than these.

    Sorry to hear about the condensation in the lights....I hope the company stands behind their product because a lot of people that are interested may change their minds. They owe you a set! Glad it rains every "blue" moon in my area, I hate rain!

    Ok. So a little update on these lights. I switched from a 55w hid, to these halogen bulbs that SUCK! The bulbs deff need to be switched out. But the LEDs look amazing day and night.

    Do you still have condensation in the lights or did it fade away clearly? I can tell the bulbs that were provided with the lights are dull. Gonna try those silverstar zxe.

    There is still condensation in the one drivers side. I ordered the correct bulb size hid kit. I had the ones for the stock headlight assembly.

    It's no problem. I ordered an h1 kit thru ddm tuning. Since I already have the ballasts, I just ordered the bulbs, and I'll keep the extra h9 bulbs for the stock headlight.

    Cool, think i'll try out this high speed silverstar zxe, if i dont like i can always upgrade to HID kit later.

    ----------

    If everything goes right with shipping...I will have a project for the weekend with my new lights, the bulbs and plasti dip on the grille. Hope the mail man doesn't let me down! If not I still plan on blacking out the grille and leaving a little bit of chrome.

    So does the led lights stay on all the time? During daytime, low and high beam?
