I assume that most people are using their original mounting brackets?
I don't know about your generation but I had to bend my stock brackets slightly, as the angel eye lamp is a little wider. I run my eyes everynight and have driven by numerous cops... none have said anything. I guess for being blue and whatnot its all how you view them...


Looks blue...

Looks not as blue...

Here was an email reply I just wrote someone about this.

No problem, it'* not hard at all, first hook up the halgon bulb up to the stock wiring, no need to replace the stock wiring, just cut and sotter up. I use sotter don't want my connections coming loose.

For the eye'* cut up some of the supplied wire and run it to the eye'* and up threw the fender by the headlight harness. There six wires there If I recall, i used a test light to figure out which one was the parking light, don't use the turn signal by accident. strip a place to attach the wire and sotter it up. I left the ground down with the 55watt, just ran the one wire up to the harness/ by the harness. Don't forget to warp all connections in elec. tape. On my 01 there was a purple strap attached to it the wire.

I see you have silver stars, me too, when I put my angle eyes in with them, they don't exactly match in color, I bought the silver star bulbs for the angle eyes shortly after and LOVE THEM, matches perfectly and increable bright, something to think about so you don't have to take the the thing apart twice.

I'm going to add for me I used the new bracket, just drilled 2 holes in the top and srewed into my bumper, worked fine. Some I see can take apart the Angle eye housing and attached it to the stock mounting bracket, I just figured this is less work and same result, My fogs are nice and tight, don't bounce around at all, did take a few aiming adjustments to get the beam where I like it.

I'd say mine aren't flush like stock, they sit back just a little bit, also they are little smaller, not a big deal. It'* not the size of the light that matters, it'* how you use it.



hope that help and questions.

So I've got a 96 bonnie and was wondering if there was any way to turn of the headlights and leave your park lights on along with the Fog lights? Seen a few setup this way (THE TOUGH LOOK) and was wondering how you accomplished it.

THanks.

YES if you have the Twillight Sentinal then you just have to pull out the headlight know one noch, the will turn on your parking ans fog lights, one more pull and the headlights come on. just make sure that your foglight switch above the mirror is turmed on
