For everyone who stuck with the halogens which ones did you get that had a white output to match the LED angel eyes.

Im still waiting for my gp thunder 5800k in the mail but have been reading that they have a similar output to the stock halogens (yellowish color)

For the ones that have had them in how are they holding up? Sorry if it has been covered, 50 pages is a lot to read.

I installed HID bulbs in the Low Beam Projectors and I am getting Left and Right Low Beam Malfunction errors after installing Diode Dynamics 35 watt error canceling Ballasts along with the relay. Both HID bulbs are working and there is no flickering. Is there a way to code out the malfunction errors or do I need to get different Ballasts?

I got these installed and they look amazing during the day but I didn't think the low beam were going to have yellow lights. So I bought some Philip bulbs to replace them. My question is how do I replace a light bulb after the headlights are installed?

Turn your tires to the left or right to access the plastic panel that can be removed from the splash guard. Once it off you can get to the low beam bulb.

Parking light, DRL and high beam you replace from the top under the round cap.

This shows the low beam replacement.

The other lights are replaced by removing the same style of round cover but from the top of the housing when you open the hood.
