    Headlight & fog lights mod

    I can't believe the difference,the output of these lights are amazing!!! Check out the before and after pics

    The headlights have clear lens and CBI 5500 bulbs.
    The fog lights are fxr 3.0 projectors with cheap 6000 k bulbs. I will be upgrading to cbi's d2s bulbs soon.

    More to come!!!img20140625_195923.jpg

    Yea, I did my CBI's a month ago in my coupe and was blown away too ! You soon begin to realize the difference and understand of why more % of people buy imports even with their cheesy appearances.... Before these were on, I would absolutely cringe when my beam pattern got always swallowed up by the other stock competitors. Now I can hold my head up high and scoff no thanks to Cadillac ! Their stock light outputs detrimental to your eyesight. Probably permanently mess up your 20/20 vision like reading a book in low light ....

    This was done by just changing out the bulbs on the low beam and fogs? If so, please post where you got them from and costs.... That is damn impressive... Have you had anyone flash you as to the bulbs being too bright and blinding them?

    The factory projector headlights come with a frost covered lens.
    This limits the output and performance of the hid lights. The first
    thing I did was replace that lens with a clear one.
    Then I changed the factory bulbs out and installed CBI bulbs
    from TRS.
    Then I replaced the factory" worthless " fog light Assembly's
    with fxr 3.0 projector's. It was a lot of work, but as you can see it
    paid off big time!
    One of the benefits of having a high quality projector is the cutoff, it keeps the light projected and focused where you need it. The pictures are with high beams on just to show overall output. With
    low beams the light stays low and does not blind oncoming traffic.
