Looks like the LEDs are more densely placed than the V2's, so it looks more like a solid ring.

Looks bright and clean!
But for some reason I like the previous version better? I like the more spaced out ring

I'm with you. The V4 has a more OEM look w/ the more solid ring. Both look good, but I actually prefer the segmented look of the V2. That's the route I'm going.

Do these look like a solid ring to the human eye, or do they look as segmented as they do in pictures? The brightness of these looks great but based on pics alone I prefer the solid ring look of my Lux bulbs.

Oh yea man. Lux looks cheap imo. Too bright and not proper. These look clean in person. Nice round rings. Trust me. Theres a reason y everyone likes them. U have to see one in person.

Why do the inner rings have a gap like one LED is burnt out? What does the non-lighted part of the outer ring look like? That's what always kills it for me.

I have no idea dude. If you stare at the light blank point, then only you will see that. I like it anyways so it doesnt matter for me. Pic #2 is without lights on. The ring is not full so it can have a aggressive look. I saw an LS3 in person and it looked more cute than mean, so these did it for me!

Sweet headlights! Now I have to research these.

Badassm, can you show us any pictures of how it looks under the hood? I'm just wondering if the setup was pretty clean or if there are wires or parts exposed after the install.

Thanks!
