    Test lighting/fitting now. Verdict: ridiculously bright. Can't look directly at it; they're almost as bright as looking at the HID lens. As bright as any OEM LED eyebrow on the market. You could get by with these Morimoto LED components as headlights in a pinch.

    Amber flashing turn signal: just as bright as any OEM switchback, from Audi or anyone else.

    Fantastic looking. Gives the front of the L320 a modern and totally different look. Love it.

    I'll take more pics when everything is back together.

    Re: How to install halos or paint headlight bezels pics

    A couple of you forum veterans know that I customized my RRS several years ago, and one of the alterations I made was to the headlights. The LED rings I chose had a manufacturing flaw, causing them to half go out:

    When I took the headlights apart, I was able to fix the weak soldering which caused the problem, but I wanted a different - updated - look.

    So I completely redid them.

    The OEM internals are PVD chrome, and I removed it by soaking the parts in bleach (which works incredibly well: totally removes the microns-thick chrome, and doesn't harm the plastic at all). Below that coating, the parts are gloss - perfect - black. The lens surround was painted hi-temp red to match the stripe on my wheels.

    I'm changing everything on the exterior which is OEM silver to black, and I've powdercoated my wheels a metallic satin black with a thin red rim stripe.

    The whole look really updates the RRS. Pics to come when it isn't below zero.

    Ok, it's been thawing here, so I got a chance to detail the RRS and take a couple of pics:

    The LED switchback feature is really nice; it has a 1.5 second 'soft-on' reverse dimming feature. I like this look better than the regular HALOs, which I think has now officially jumped the shark (now that I don't have it anymore LOLOL)

    Couple more close ups:

    Mannnn, that's looks sweet! You mind posting a link to the LED STRIPS you got?

    & I sure wish I'd known about the bleach trick instead of painting my chrome to black!..

    All LED components were sourced @ theretrofitsource.com - they're all Morimoto. The problem is - and I didn't know it when I bought them all - they have V1, V2, and V3 iterations of these components. As a result, the color is off between them by a bit. I would have liked them all to be a dead match, but the main (largest) LED is a replacement for a Subaru WRX, and was made long enough ago that the LEDs are more cool. If they update all components to version 3, the color will match across them all.

    There are three components per headlight: a 100mm HALO; WRX LED and a 6" flexible strip.

    Immensamind, how long did you soak the chrome bezels for in bleach?

    I soaked them overnight, but you just keep watching them, and wait until every bit of the brightness is completely gone.

    The plastic underneath is black, glass smooth and glossy.

    Re: How to install halos or paint headlight bezels pics

    I just did mine tonight, it seems somehow I messed up with the Adaptive front light system, I've got a flashing "light bulb" icon flashing and the AFS system does not work.

    Any one has any clue what may cause it? Thanks a lot....
