    Didn't get them in time for MOTD2012 but here nonetheless...a pair of suprisingly high quality Sonar/Spyder projection lamps with LED DRL...even has the proper projector cut-off panel so as to not offend peeps who just can't keep their eyes off bright lights...

    Been looking at these for a bit, how do you like them? And they don't fit the factory hid right, so what's the kit you got there?

    Hey Chris...the factory HID are part of the lamp...the pig tail unplugs from it and into the new one...I'll have to splice in the HID components...shouldn't be a big deal...they do look like OEM quality imo...

    I must say Sid has some of the cleanest designing to a MINI...

    And Chris, glad to see you active on here. Hope one day in the future you get the car built back up.

    The two of your cars have been the main inspiration to what is hopefully coming of mine this summer/fall...its been a long time coming with these plans...
