I am new to this forum also, and I just don't know what I was thinking when I bought and installed my Angel Eyes without even visiting one forum. Anyway, I bought Angel Eyes from a website and the guy whom I talked to on the phone sounded very enthusiastic about it being super bright.
Once I got them, I tried to install them myself, but sweating for 2 hours I just gave up and sought professional help. An aftermarket "fix-up" auto sports shop did it for me and connected the lights to the parking lights, hence making it blink when I would trun my indicator(turn signal) on. I loved it but the problem was that it was not bright enough in DayLight or when the Bi-Xenon headlights were on during night time.
So I contacted the installer again, and he said he can connect the LEDs to my battery directly, using a remote control box, so that I can turn the lights on and off via a separate remote and it will also have more power since it will be directly connected to the battery. I had him do it.
Now it is brighter, and rather visible as a very slight "TRULY angel soft" ring around the middle high beams, even when the headlamps are on. But I wanted to know if there is any other way to get the Angel Eyes very bright so that they would be distinctly visible.
At this point, I can not have this car without Angel Eyes, it makes a world of difference. See for yourself in the following pics, which were taken before the recent direct connection to the battery: Click on each image to see a larger version
