As far as I know the rings are powered by 2 LED PW24W bulbs on each headlight

I think fitting HID's will give a really really close look to proper Xenon's!

Put my name down, I am in 100%!!

Looks like it's 1 PW24W bulb per ring, which could be up to 50W so they is enough to see them clearly in the daylight.

I recommend 5000k HIDs for a factory xenon look

Just to confirm these will be available end September. They will most likely be limited stock.

I will be speaking to Stefan in a weeks time and I need concrete numbers to give to him.

1) BrennanF30 - 1 set
2) CazuaLLUK - 1 set

As far as I know use the indicator bulbs from your old halogen headlights

Ring LEDs are included only.

You will need to buy a set of H7 halogen bulbs for your high beam and a set of H7 HIDs for your low beam.

I do believe this is the answer to our prayers. No more cheap looking halogens!

This is usually the drawback with aftermarket xenons, if you want xenons high beams as well then you need two sets of HID's.

At the moment we don't know if they will be dual or single projector units, but to be honest it doesn't make much difference to me, they look fantastic regardless and very similar to the genuine thing, to the untrained eye nobody would tell the difference.

They are a million percent better looking than the halogens and the end of September can't come quick enough for me.

Just the look of these alone make our cars classier and more expensive looking

I'd update this to the first post mate, always keep that one up to date so new viewers to the thread can see the demand. The more people the better.
