I'm getting a set of these installed next week. Will post pix when it's done. I'll probably end up getting the chrome ones though not the black:

Hi Chris, haven't looked at them yet. I still want to try to resolve the knocking issue with my Eibachs before trying the Brabus. Been busy at work so no time yet to look into the problem.

Are you going to swing by the Lake Forest thing next week to check out my headlights?

Don't get it, if you have the original xenon lights, you can swap to these, they have the same xenon setup?
Also, does it come with a daylight module to switch LED's off when lights are on..etc..etc..?

It will look nice but not as the original one, the light will just be plain white or blue not proper xenon.

I'm getting them for free, as part of a test-install. They are looking for feedback and they're also going to shoot the car for their SEMA advertising.

I'm not sure on the details yet. Supposedly they have Xenon versions which can use the bits from the original Bi-Xenons that I have now on the car. We'll see. It would be nice if I could reuse all my original bulbs.

As far as being able to turn off the DRL strip. I'm not sure, but that would kind of defeat the purpose . I like DRLs so I'm going to keep them on, but I'll let you know what I find out.

Once I get them installed I plan to create a thread on it for people to discuss or for me to relay my experiences and pictures.

Nice James. I just got back from my install. I got the chrome ones, so as soon as I get some pictures I'll post them up. I will probably start a new thread because this is the thread with about the worst discrepancy between title and what it's about .
