I don't have anything against white angel eyes, it's very clean but I think yellow is very mean and has that 24hour lemans race feel. It's aggressive...

So you coded your car so when you turn on the HID Lights, the Halos stay the same as intense as DRL?

From factory they are intense as DRL, but when the headlamps are turned on, they lower their brightness.

Spacers are coming. Still figuring out what diffuser. And yeah I diy-ed it around the same time you did. Made a thread about it a couple months ago. I had to have reflectors for state inspection...

The Yellow Ion looks amazing. Can't wait to receive my set this week trough the mail.

You both wrapped your cars. Damn that's nice. Here in the island Puerto Rico, to pay a shop to wrap your car cost around $2,500. Ouch

ahhhhh gotcha! Well good thing is you can wrap and unwrap em at any time! I believe my diffuser is the 3D design one (I snagged it at my buddies shop for a few bucks cuz someone had left it behind and didn't want it hehe) but awesome man. Wrapping is such a pain in the balls but totally worth it! Everyone that sees my car in person tells me my wrap job looks better than the professional wrap jobs they've seen lol. I was surprised cuz I'm such a perfectionist I thought I had done a crap job but hey guess not!
Here are some more pics so u can see my diffuser and such:

That's what I ordered. Although Nokya is definitely on the lower end of the quality spectrum I have used them in the past and have had no problems.
