Aftermarket RS halos

Would you chose the jdp color hanging halls or the AAC color shift 2.0 halos?
I believe the AAC halos are brighter and have more "show modes" but the Jdp halos can be installed without tearing apart the headlights. Theyre both around the same price unless you get the fog lights with the AAC halos which would be about $100 more. I can't decide!
AAC



Jdp

I hear a lot of mixed reviews. Mostly positive but when they are negative... they are reaaaaaly negative.

I don't know if I want the dots or not

May not be what you're looking for. Not sure if they have the colorshifting lights. I've seen theur halos in person. Good looking. Was gonna get a pair, but lucked up on a set of Eagle Eyes instead. In this case, I'd go with the JDP to be different.

They look nice but It doesn't look like they change color. Since I already have the RS halos I'm looking for something more colorful and brighter.

AAC is great, you wont have the dots if you put the halo over it...well it will difuse most of it

But the JDP kit is nice since you dont have to open up the headlights.
I have all AAC lighting with no complaints. If they offered a kit with out cutting up the headlights, I would definitly buy it.

Maybe I should make a pro con sheet lol. I think AAC's are going to be A LOT more expensive. I could probably do jdp's install but there's no way I'm even going to try and install the 2.0's

Yeah man I woldnt bake open my RS lights since theyre soo damn expensive. They are brighter then the JDP ones, but the JDP one is bright enough! And you can install it yourself.
I dont understand how it works though without opening the headlights, but they wont release that info because of competition sakes

I think they're the same as sjm's halos but half the price somehow If I could figure out where to get them installed I'd probably go with AAC since they also have fog halos but idk

Wierd...dude the install price is going to ridiculous on the AAC halos! I couldnt swing that much. I did cut open my taillights, and install the after burners. But cutting open $800 headlights is a little different. Go JDP dude

If you get their V2 RGB halos you can't see the dots

On their sale thread it says
Quote:
no baking, drilling, cutting, splicing, mashing, gluing, crushing, breaking, soldering, welding, throwing, dipping, or painting required of the headlights to install this kit.
