Haha sorry everybody, been pretty busy but here's a few more pics. You can also see why I need to aim them but that's proving to be harder than it should be. Seems like I need to take the bumper/lights off again just to aim them...

Low beams in the garage


High beams in the garage


Low beams on the street


Head on pic with the lights off

I would argue that they might actually be brighter than stock output. But through pics it's difficult to tell. The look of them on the car is really starting to grow on me.

and cut off does seem to be sharper as well!

I actually got mine from Amazon for cheaper. Took a risk since I found this listing with no pics, just ordered it based on the fact that the part number matched and it worked out.
$324 Shipped

couple questions. are the DRLs always on or do they turn off with the headlights activated?

the light output pictured, is that the bulbs the lights came with or did you put in HIDs?

thanks man i'm excited to get them in

So my DRLs stopped working, doesn't seem related to these headlights. After some searching it seems like a common issue for some people, so I guess those may be gone for good. Even tried getting the DRL to light up without any headlights in at all and nothing, so can't say that it would look like. But the LED accents are only on when you put in the parking lights (the first click forwards on the light stalk) and when the headlights are on.

And the light output pictures is from the stock HID ballast/bulb. You reuse it by swapping it into the new headlights

Some more pics. And now that I've finally gone on a long night drive I can definitively say these have better light output than stock. Can see much better than the stock assemblies. Cutoff works great, nobody was flashing me with their lights. So far, 10/10 would recommend.

Are you running different bulbs in your fogs other than the stock bulbs?

Perfect match. Go for the 6000k color and that'll match. And hopefully you don't lose your DRLs like I did lol

Is it still possible to add switchbacks to these headlights? (might be overkill)

Just reused the HIDs that came with the car. Pretty sure these ones are by phillips

Nope switchbacks wouldn't be possible, the turn signals are like 5 LEDs that are not removable. So not possible unless you do some heavy modifications

Yep the headlights include a set of DRLs, just some standard halogen ones. But I think my DRL problems will never be solved sadly. Checked everything I can think of

I was hoping the bulbs would match the led accents.....
as for your drl issues, I think I read somewhere that some guy paid 420 CAD for a brand new fuse box and connections. Very pricey IMO for drl functionality

Oh yeah I think I saw that thread too haha. No way I'm paying that much for DRLs, especially since I think it looks better without them. Only complaint is the annoying DRL warning light
