So recently I posted my headlight project to see what I should do and someone recommended putting an led strip like the Audi. So I did but I couldn't find one long enough and now I think it looks a little short. I was thinking about cutting the last 3 leds so it looks like it was meant to be like that but I'm thinking on just leaving it the way it is.

Well of course they're not going to come out as nice as the Audi headlights haha. The Audi has a nice little section for them, these were never meant to have leds. I have no idea how much I'm going to charge make me an offer.

Those look like HID housings? Are they really or they just halogens...

If you bothered to open them up did you modify your projector in any way.?

They are hid housings, they use D2S bulbs. I just painted them cleaned the plastic, redid the wiring(when I first bought them they had no wiring for the low lights), I took apart the projector and sprayed the shield metallic purple so it has a nice little purple look at the cut off line when you look at them.

Good man!...

On the second attempt they look much better but when you install them on your car you will see that they go out too far and it looks odd... best line is to go up between the low beam and the turn signal...

Hope this picture inspires you.. .

Very nice work man, Well I haven't sealed the lights in just yet because I'm checking how they look the best but I'll test fit them to see how they look and I'll post it.

I personally liked the way you did them first.. the strip at the bottow that did not go past the side signal area.
but to each their own. Im not a fan if the strip up and down.

Those are absolutley gorgeous!! I'm sure there are lots of Cat owners who would love to have a pair of those. No matter which way you go they look a ton better than stock. If you decide to change careers there could be a market you could sell them to. ????? Cheers, Brian

ps: I don't understand why people come to this site if they have nothing but contempt for Cats or Cimms. Sell it and get another place to go.
