Word bird... Have you seen the faro arm laser scanner? I would love to have one and a big 3d printer.

I think I have seen every version of these lights on these cars. I just cant bring myself to like them. I dont love the look of my lights either, but I dont dislike them as much.


I really wish GE would make the NightHawk LED in 5.75.

That's a serious upgrade, right there.

I don't know about the "looks", but I would like to know what's the "performance" upgrade like? Current drawn and light projected, compared to stock - or old school halogen upgrades?

Time will tell. I'm trying to figure out the current draw situation now.

I can say, the beam does seem more narrow, but I haven't driven the car yet and I haven't adjusted the headlights either. I don't think it takes much to beat the stock lamps though as far as performance goes.

Also I could go for a bit less "transformer" sharp edges in the housing, but I just want to see better. Price was right and they are plug and play. Easy upgrade.

From the pictures I have seen so far, these Dapper lights are very narrow. And its all due to the optics since they are running a small projector to just barely fit.

No, I wish it was a kit. I just bought material and got to work.
