Re: (Vash13)

yeah, I am gonna do a write up sooner or later. This week has been hectic with the LED project alone. The eyelids were a pain to get painted, and then trying to get all this done before I get it lowered was weighing in.<p>I got them from here: <A HREF="http://www.goingfast.org" TARGET="_blank">http://www.goingfast.org</A>/<br>

Cool. Looking forward to lowered pics, it really changes the personality of the car and I think will make them look more appropriate. Details plz!!

Been seeing this done to a lot of VW's lately. Was looking into doing this inside my head light assemblies but didnt know how to pull it off without it being overly exposed sitting up front . Looks cool.

so did you just "stick" them facing out? how does it look up close? im worried it will look like a black line. i just ordered them, i figure for 40 bucks why not. and they are the perfect look, just worried about if it is ascetically pleasing or not when off. oh and what did you connect them too power wise? fogs? drls? parking lights?

Re: (euro3b)

All future Volvo models will be utilizing LED technology. The first example is the XC60's "nostrils." I like what he's done.<p>Will you be attending the GTG up here on July 12th?<p>T

as for aesthetically pleasing when off, not bad. When I do the write up I will show you what they look like when off. The strip is black so it blends very well with the foglight lenses. The plastic lenses on the bottom sink so far in you can barely notice them, unless you were to specifically look for them.<p>As for "Audi only", I really didnt care. I see CTS's now with LED's as well. It's a growing trend.<p>I wanted to splice into the DRL's but that ended up temporarily disabling the fuse relay system for some of my lights. I ended up buying some extra wiring (18gauge) splice into the originals, wired them to a toggle switch below the steering wheel, then relaying them back directly to my battery. The write up with pictures <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> will explain a lot more. <p>As for the July 12th meeting, I will request the time off from work this week, and most likely will be up there.
