Is it your halo that's brighter thank the other or the actual light coming out of the projector?

If your talking about the light coming out of the projectors I'm starting to think maybe one of your high beam flaps is up in one and down in the other causing one to be brighter.

If its the high beam solenoid then you will have to take the headlight apart. You can try to rig them up to the battery for a second to see if it moves. You can see it if you have the lights on.

Lights look great. If you want your parking lights to ONLY come on when you activate the turn signal then try this.

Did you wire the Halo's to the Parking Lights?
Did you somehow disable DRL - or set them to activate your Fogs + Halos?

Love this thread, thank you for taking the time to post it.

Hey thanks! I did wire the halos and fogs to the parking lights so I can just use the parking light switch to turn them on and off.

Awesome.
I think I'm going to order me some. I don't want to bake my original headlamps. This just seems easier.

Thanks again,
Tim

It is pretty simple and straight forward. The hardest part of the entire install was taking the front bumper off, but after that it was all easy.

Thanks!
I got the eagle eyes from here: http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=59212658125
And I got the HID kit for them from theretrofitsource.com. They've the best HID kits out there in my opinion.

Sure can. Here it is: http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...oducts_id=3954
You'll need to be sure it's H9 bulbs and H13 harness to work.
