    Thank you, I take that as a huge compliment.

    I can't say I wasn't inspired by your FX, or any of the work that you've done.
    I'm using the same exact LED strips you used for the "angel eyes" (see above post) but mine will be more of an "angry eyebrow" kind of look.

    I also want to get halo fog lights, but I might just get a couple more LED strips and make a bezel for them... We'll see, I have some time off coming up (being without a job soon and all) so there may be some cool new stuff happening to the car.

    I love that thread, even when he was given legitimate, smart answers, he'd ignore them and listen to the sarcastic outlandish advice. I was just waiting to watch on the news and see something about him burning his house down trying to bake a solar cell onto the body of his RC car.
    He has to get a little credit for trying to think outside the box, but when you don't even know where the box is, you got a problem.

    BTW where did you get your LED strips from? I just got them on eBay for about $30 for two pair shipped from china. If they work out, I'd want to get another two pair soon.

    I got my LED's in, and they are definitely brighter than I expected, which is nice. I think I'm going to mount the white ones right above the fog lights, like the A6's have. The turns will take a little longer since I'll be making something to mould them in with the mirrors.

    I also finally moved the amp to under the seat. Now as far as that goes, the wiring is all cleaned up and where it should be. It's far enough under the seat and rotated so that there will be no shoe damage.

    I am making an offer for a used p2140 in the classifieds, so as long as that goes well, I'll have that taken care of. Soon I am going to add a CNX-P5V for the USB hubs.

    Lastly, I hope to have my replacement touch panel within the end of the month. That will pretty much finish up this project, for now at least.

    Audi seems to be starting a trend with those LED lights. I decided to go more along the Porsche LED look, where they are molded in the bumper, with the bumper i am getting it will look nice.

    Something of this essence: (S6, not A6 I guess)



    and this:



    Here's what they look like removed:


    My LED strips are decidedly more lights (24 vs. 5) and are smaller lights, so it will give a different look, but the essence of that extra "luxury" is what I'm looking for. If I don't acheive that, I will just take them off. I'll probably play around with this on monday a little bit, so there may be concept pics...

    cant wait for some pics of this and where you put them. Ever since the audi's came out Ive wanted to do this. Where exactly are you going to put them?

    Let me ask though.... The ones for audi are made to work as fog lights, thats why they are large. Are you sure you will get the same brightness by going with smaller, but more, lights? I have to assume audi went bigger for a reason. I cant wait to see how you do this also. Thankfully the bumper im getting has spacing in the grill to put them.

    Here is a pick of the bumper im getting.


    PS: Are you going to have to run new wiring and switch or do you already have fog lights and replacing them?

    ok, here's a REALLY REALLY bad night pic, more as a teaser. I will take some day pics tomorrow.



    (GIF above, shows on and off...)

    I wired this from the battery to a fuse to a relay (on seperately switched ign) to ground. This way, when I turn the car on, I can flip the switch, and they light up, when I turn the car off the lights turn off as well (no dead batteries) and I can choose to turn them on and off (oil change, etc.) These suckers are bright, but pointed mostly towards the road, so they shouldn't cause issues for drivers ahead of me, but they don't seem to add any visibility, but I haven't road tested them yet. They are definitely worth doing, and it was fairly easy to install.
