Got some new 60 watt DRL bulbs from Ofer and Gen5 DIY.










The Gen5 DIY bulb on the left, and the AAC plasma bulb on the right. Mind you, I had no issues with my AAC bulbs - just wanted something brighter.



So when going to install the Gen5 DIY bulbs I got sloppy and nicked one of the wires going to the OEM side of the connector.



Not the prettiest soldering job, but it'll do for now.




By the way - it was sunny and 70 degrees when I took these last two pictures.

Thank you much. Carbon fiber is addictive though, you start with something small and then you're just like "let me get just one more carbon fiber part, just one."

Melt housings? Nah...just spend way to much and get the housings that allow you to use the 5202 bulbs.


....like I did....









But I will say....Now that I have the new housings and the new HID's, it was worth it. It's done and it's done right (better than the old P13 AAC bulbs that were purple and fell apart if you even pulled on the wires...) Three exchanges on those bulbs that kept crapping out. They finally literally FELL APART. Like....I have NO bulb anymore because they are just plain old GONE. No idea where they went. But they sure as shit aren't in the housing anymore. So.... Got rid of those (as I'm tired of sending them back for replacements). Now...HID's. The lights match and look perfect. Much brighter than before and they actually match in color. And, they actually FIT the housing unlike another brand....which will break the housing they supposedly are made to fit. (sorry...venting about the shitty P13's I got which literally broke both my STOCK daytime running light housings). And yes, I did everything I could to install them correctly.

Oh lookie what I found....lol. Yes. Of course I took a picture of what was left over. Why? Because I was obviously pretty surprised...and knew that one day I might want to show someone. Mm hmm. Yep.
