Reading Topic: Angel Eyes....

Would the angel eyes include a replacement for the fog light, or would they simply install around the fog light? These would be really cool to get. My brother just got some installed in his Civic, looks really sweet.

Yeah, I just realized that. According to my brother, it was quite difficult to get the wiring right so that all the lights in the new housing worked. These might just be a big PITA, however cool they are.

Reading Topic: Angel Eyes....

Here is a suggestion for the truely brave:

- Replace the driving/parking light bulb with a hyper white one, then take apart the headlight housing and install a custom fit ring around the inside edge of the driving/parking and high-beam headlight spot, so when you click on the headlights on the first knob, viola angel eyes, may look a little weird with the low beams on.

-- Wait do I have that backards... low beams on the outside or inside... oh well.

Ahh ok, thanks for the clarification. I've always like the BMW angel eyes and thought that they serve as head lights as well.

I wonder... Might be able to rig a fibre optic tube to plug into the 194 parking light socket. Then wrap the tube around the seemingly-removable rear hemisphere of the hi-beam housing. Thus angel eyes with the low-beams on (do the parking lights turn off with the hi-beams on...? i think they turn off with the fogs on though, so there would be a large separation between the low-beams and the angel eyes without the fogs on).

The parking lights stay on with the fogs, I know that for sure. I am sure they'd stay on with the high beams too. I don't know many cars that have the parking lights turn off for any reason, unless you turn them off yourself of course.
