Best Halo Kit

Hey guys,
I am looking to get an LS (obviously I will have to add Halos and HID's) So what are some of the best ones you guys have seen. I like the look of them over the regular lights but just seems to lose a little bit of the halo look due to it reflecting off the headlamps material. Is there a way to change that so the Halo stand out more. Thanks

Also if you guys have pics or videos I would love to see them. Thanks again

In my opinion AAC is the way to go.

Why not pay an extra $1k and get the 1LT and get the RS package as it will probably be cheaper and will definately look better...

Upgrade and get the RS option. You will spend over $650+ for the HID & Halos installed alone!

You can save $169 and do the install yourself, but having done it, I would never attempt it again. Plus you will have to jack up the front of your car on stands, remove the wheels, open up the fenders, remove the front end, remove the headlight assemblies and ship them off for 10 days to get installed(recommended) or have a go of it yourself and maybe end up buying a new headlight housing(same cost as installation).

You also get the paint match ditch molding on the roof, different taillights, and the RS badging.

The RS option was only $1200, not sure what it is now, plus its covered under your warranty. I am sorry I didn't!

Just one opinion

The price of a 1LS to a 1LT RS is around 3K.

I have a non-rs and I love it. I live in the country where street lights are not found and the regular headlamps as are good as any HID's I've ever had. I recommend getting the Halo's through AAC, skip the HID lights, and use the remaining mod money for other mods.

the only thing is that the stock lights turn yellowish after time...i dont know if the HID's do that, but that yellowish tint gets on my nerves

The "yellowish" tint on headlights is the lens itself turning yellow not anything on the inside.
