you cut lines so the light shows from the sides. I believe OEM angel eyes uses this.

Fiber Optics aren't bad necessarily, they are just old technology and not as bright. They are also much harder to install and require messy light boxes etc...

The new technology is CCFL and provides the most bright light output available of any angel eye technology. Our Predator Chromiums are CCFL based and are MUCH easier to install with plug and play connectors and wiring harness.
