Awesome!!! Can't wait!

For all those that care, I started the installation at 6pm Tuesday and stopped at midnight and started again Wednesday at about 7pm and had the car back together and driving at 10pm. The second headlight was A LOT easier cause I had some idea of how to do it rather than trying to watch the video and do it. I have NO mechanical experience and not good with tools either haha. Went well I think though. They look great. Just trying to figure out what colors I can drive with on here in KY I know red and blue are a no no, but green might be ok.

It sounds like this LED swap is the hard part. Everyone IS installing this kit with the headlights removed from the car, theres no avoiding that.
Well there's a guy on here on the forums that sells them for $800 a set. It's a lot better than $900 a headlight.

I wasn't too sure how it was supposed to be installed so I just offered up that idea.

Yea, don't get me wrong, the prices here are much better than buying brand new from the dealer. I'm just saying you could wait to see what JDP comes up with for the non RS instead of spending $1000 (RS headlights + JDP kit) because you want color changing halos and an easier install. But, if you were planning on getting RS headlights in the first place regardless of the JDP kit, then yea, go for it.

Thanks JDP!

Dragom (Danny), BSX_Camaro (Brad) and myself got together for two installs today. Danny's nephew Houston is probably one of the brightest kids I've seen in a long time. He torn apart two cars and aside from testing the kits which I strongly suggest before installation, it took about 2hrs per car and that's pulling the front wheels, adding 8K projectors and chrome dome bulbs to Brad's car. Anyway, the end result is 3 cars with the JDP color changing halos that look sick!

I really don't like the halogen look. It feels a little too overused. If JDP can make them look a whole lot better then I would definitely stay with halogens.

I wouldn't mind eagle eyes but they're halos are too small.

I don't think eagle eyes get the respect they deserve, lol. I felt the same way as you, looking at pictures of them online. Until I saw them in person while installing them on a friends car. They look a lot better than I thought. Slightly different from RS but nice. They're not LED though so I dont think this kit would work with them.
Here's how his halos looked after I was done.

That's awesome! How'd you get the grill lighting to change colors at the same time?

Never have truer words been spoken, don't even attempt without the suggested tools.

No problems after the install, I think the orange looks weak, and the yellow has a green tinge. Other than that I feel it's a quality product. I can get the orange I want by pausing the fade.

Is there a way to program a color?

Installed mine yesterday and I'm think I must have pulled a wire off of one of the LEDs or something because all I get are different shades of blue, purple, and red and my interior LED still lights up all colors. The only good thing about this is that both halos are in sync (i.e. one doesn't light up red and one green) unless I messed up the same wire on each LED lol. I have tried to reprogram the lights, but that doesn't seem to fix anything.

I defintely won't be taking the LED's out again unless I pay someone to do it haha.

I also can't run my dome lights and associated footwell lighting at the same time as the halo's. No blown fuses though. Not sure what the deal is there.

Would anyone be able to post the install PDF? I'd like to take it to a shop for an estimate.

Can someone hook me up with the programming for the remote. Everything had been working fine but now my halos come on in both ignition and battery but I can't get them to do anything else. Earlier today the went through all the colors, speed and fades but I'm not sure if the remote is jacking with with me.

Thanks!

How to reprogram remote:

Turn switch inside car to no power
Hold down brightness up and brightness down and power button all at once for 15 seconds or so
Turn switch to battery power while still holding all 3 buttons, keep holding the buttons for 15-20 seconds while the box relearns the code.

May take you 2 or 3 tries but it will work.
