ahhh yeaaaa!!!

Got me some new additions this weekend and finally wired them into my beater this afternoon... check the results... BTW it was worth the effort and $$ for the light difference, quite pleased

anyone interested in a set of US ellipsoids???

unfortunatly not smoked, but in the dark the lows kinda looked smoked....sweet

as for my old lights, I think 100$ for the set is fair. one high beam is cracked... but the others are in very good condition. the two lows are awesome, hardly pitted...

I think those are called city lights.. They're meant to be left on at the side of the road on the little narrow streets of europe at night so people don't run into your car.

As for the US ellips, if anyone has them and wants better light output, try fitting some 9005 highbeams by cutting / filing the tabs down. They are only 10 watts hotter, but the lack of a black covering on them makes for an unbelievable difference in light output. They have a shorter life too, but heck, I think the whole car has a shorter life with the factory US ellips.. they're dangerous!

then the car life with sealed lights would be 3-4 times shorter

currently i have just 1 low beam US ellips and it's muuch brighter than my sealed ever were.

My sealed beams are wicked in my eta.. i replaced them last year, so new glass and new technology halogen = good lights. Before my highbeam mod, my lows were so bad that I had to slow down at night on the highway. No kidding.

I have H4 conversion low beams and just the H1 Highs, apperently this is the second best setup other then Euro Elips / H1's

Bright as ****, and I love the fact that all Lights go on with the Highbeams
