1. Are those a pain-in-the-ass to install? If so, rate it on a 1 - 10 scale, 1 being a piece of cake and 10 being mechanical rape.

2. Are they bright? How bright? Got pics?

3. Are those the "smilies"?



word...


ps: while I have you here, http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html/detai...PRODUCT_ID=BM20

where do you put that thing?

those light not sure if there hard to install but i know there bright no those aren't smilies have like a creasant moon at the bottom. and the other thing the bently repair manual show that it goes the round thing next to the fuse box and right on the firewall. at least for your model i think it goes there. the older models its different

Hey Old_School,

When you installed the smiley's, what was there previously... sealed-beam headlights or non-smiley (North American) ellipsoids?

Thanks,
T.
