sorry but I think it looks kinda tacky. With the lights off it looks like you Bedazzled your headlights.

at night it looks good, but during daytime they look a little cheezy

mad props for another DIY mod!

To be completely honest its not my cup of tea. I do not think it compliments the natural lines of the car like it does on the audi. I dont think any car besides an audi could pull it off and look good....

Nonetheless i think its cool u still did it to be different...i want to paint my stock wheels blaze orange and i know it will look tacky but thats how it goes.

Yeah, I wired them up to the parking lights, so I can flip them on and off with the switch on top of the steering wheel.



haha can't wait to see the bright orange!! those will look very interesting with the silver. I personally like the crazy rim colors. Makes each car unique

from what i read over on nasioc the LEDs jus look like a neon strip from farther away compared to the audi where you can notice the LEDs distinctively from the same distance

Blaze Orange... sorry to admit it, but I was pondering something along these lines too. May-B even a nasty Kawasaki Green. May go a step futher & go Flat Black on the body. Will look like an RC car I had years ago. (LOVED how it looked). But this is will prob. never happen.

Kind of off topic, and a different car. A friend of mine has an EVO VIII, stock blue with road cone orange rims, its awesome looking IMHO.

if they were brighter than i would say yeah not bad............and do u have them mounted on the inside of the headlights or the outside...........i would suggest getting some that are much brighter and have a wider viewing angle.....and to top it off if they are on the inside, u should Plastic-dip (spray) the strip black to help it blend in...but only the bar not the actual leds themselves....duh!
