That means you'll have a smaller gap then just the seville grill. Since the eddo grill is wider it pushes the light more towards the signal corner and the gap isnt as big. Gaps....small or big is ugly and annoying. Their a big eyesore for me. Thats why I just welded the fenders to accept the right corners.
woodshoe i was also wondering if u disabled the drl's (daytime running lights)??? b/c they still go on and i want to be able to drive in the day w/ only the rings on
the way I have the wiring set up, my DRLs are my rings. My headlamps do not turn on. I took power for the rings from the marker lights, which turn on when your DRLs or fogs are on.
Hey WoodShoe I like the ccfl conversion. The bulb version aren't nearly bright enough even with higher wattage bubls. Thats odd that your version of the headlights are h3s.
I agree, H3 are not that bright...still 2 lazy to go get the HID conv. Its cold out here, dont wanna do any work
Honestly, I personally don't like the look unless you got your fog lamps to be that cool blue color.
I agree, it does look pretty g@y. And I have thougth about it. This is what im thinking....Since I dont really think any kind of aftermarket housing will fit so nicely in the gaps, i intend 2 keep it. I'll get a nice aftermarket PIAA bulb set. Wire in a harness from a honda. Then force those babies into the original housing..shouldnt b 2 hard to rig.
this weekend i went into my diagnostic mode and changed some codes around so now my drl's do not turn on , i also spliced into the marker lights so i manually turn on when i want them on, and 2morrow i will finally send those rings out to be replaced and asap i will post my results
Slick, those are the same shape. The only difference is they are not projector beams. Not even sure if those have angel eyes, looks like they might not. If you google a search for "E36 angel eyes" im sure you'll come up with something.
Okay I finally threw my new pair of headlights in. These are glass lenses instead of the plastic. The Angel Eyes are LEDs I would like to go the ccfl route but I think i'm satisfied with LEDs at the moment.
I have a set of 4300k HIDs in it. I can see the road nicely nows. My old set of lights were more blue at the cutoff but these are brighter. I am planning to modify the cut off to reveal more purple/blue.
Took me about 5 or 6 hours....brought along some beers and had a good time tearing it up. The problem is once you start, you better finish If youre comfortable with this kind of project (taking a grinder to your car, etc.) its not really that difficult.
sesshoumaru....can u take some pics with the hood up, im curious 2 see how you have yours set up.
sesshoumaru, thats an STS or an ETC? I can't really tell from the pics...
and Woodshoe, final questions..from what I understand its all plug and play right? (after everything has been modded to fit the lights)
and...what tools would I need...all of them? I know an angle grinder is one...is that it?
Im trying to think back of what other tools I used.......youre propably going to need a drill with a small bit. The little plastic strip under the lights needs to have a hole drilled through it into the bumper so u can secure it with a screw. Depending on how u want to fabricate the brackets, youre going to need a welder. It helps to know how to use it, but certainly I think its easy enough for someone with no weld experiance, to throw those brackets together. If you have any more questions, feel free ro PM me. I'll try to answer them best I can. Good Luck
