I am putting together something, hope to have it in the store next week, just wanted to guage how many were interested in these.



These are a bit different then some of the others on the market, they are a diamond back fixture and use H4 bulbs, which gives you better lighting and makes it easier to replace spent bulbs, these also have the little "city light" where you can wire in a blue light or something, not for me but maybe someone will like that feature, you just leave it be if you don't want it.



I'm figuring $54.95 for a pair, you can pick out your bulbs at the local store or I can get PIAA's if you would like.



I'll also have the non-diamond back kits like you see pretty much everywhere else for $36.99.



I'll also have some 90/100w super white bulbs for $20 if you would rather get them all at once.

Are these an OEM replacement, so that they would work with the pop-up mechanisms, or are they meant to be fixed? If they would fit right into the pop-up casings and everything, id be pretty interested. My headlights suck right now, and going with something brighter would be great. Lemme know bout them!

It's an OEM setup, you will replace your current sealed beam light with this fixture, then a h4 bulb into the rear of the new fixture and then plug your harness into the h4 bulb as you would your current sealed beam. Your healights will work the same as always except you can buy brighter h4 bulbs and easily replace spent bulbs!

Very nice figure, I paid slightly less for used ones last year. I would have gone with this was it available.



After running them for a year I have experienced a slightly hot (as in partially melted) harness plug for the headlamp. I think it's due to a bad ground? A few others in my area have reported the same problem. I have yet to tackle the issue though, it hasn't caused a problem other than visually when you look at the harness plug.

Yes. Very interested. I can't see very well at night even with the brights on. They still have the high and low beam settings right? Just straight OEM replacement you said. If so, I am interested.
