GP thunder Angels eyes

Finally I installed the 8500 GP thunder angel eyes. The color is great, but they are too weak and even though with the stock bulbs you do notice that the bigger ring's light is weaker than the small one, with the GP you can see a bigger difference.

I was looking at this LED conversion kit. I wonder if they really work.

I wouldn't believe that it's bright than HIDs. If it is I wouldn't recommend it.

This is the same kit I bought for $200 about 2 months ago. It looks good at night but is almost invisible during the day. I now use the HID kit. I posted pictures on this topic about 3 days ago under the EAS LED topic. Do a quick search.



If you want this LED kit, I'll sell you mine for $50. I used them for about 2 weeks. If you want something brighter, I would go with the HIDs or wait until someone comes out with something better.

I'll stick with your HID solution. It's the best thing out there right now IMO.
