The real curious ones roll the window down and ask since all my badges are removed!!! haha

I also have mine running through a switch in the cab, so all it takes is a flip of the switch and there off...best of both worlds!
Yeah, I've gotten the same kind of compliments. The only people who've called it rice are Sam and some people on another forum that'* not even car related.

Nick, dont get me wrong. I'm not saying your car is rice and i doubt that you care about my opinion anyways, all i'm saying is i wont do it myself, same way many members wont have 20" on their cars or change their front pontiac emblem to black and silver.
to each his own, dont get me wrong i love your headlights and i almost got brian to make me very similar ones, but i just dont think its my cup of tea.

on the other hand if you wanna sell them shot me a PM

I kind of like the LED strips as a DRL alternative. Never "felt" angel eyes though.

LEDs are not rice, rice is Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements. And LEDs don't fall in to that. But like Sam said, to each their own.

I use mine in conjunction with my fog lights as DRL'*. I don't have HIDs in my highbeams anyway, buy my lows and fogs are HID. I use the fogs because my LEDs aren't that bright during the daytime.
