Yup. It all depends on what you want. Some prefer the angel eyes, but I prefer the smaller lights that let more air to the lower part of the radiator. More of an issue on the SSE or SSEi, though. My lights are available at Walmart. I think that'* where Mos and others have found them. Great lights. Glass, tough, good reflector design. Vast improvement over stock, and an easy upgrade.

I aim them below where the headlights are. I have my lights aimed for the road, not necessarily where the book says. They're just right. I try not to use the driving lights by others, i know it'* a pencil beam and all, but I still try to keep it down just incase.

Yup, I got the Navigators from Wally World. They are pretty tough. One of mine has been cracked for a couple of months now, but all the glass is still there, and it still works great. It'll get teplaced soon, but I am still suprised it'* managing to stay in one piece.

So I just got me hella Optilux lights today (No I didn't get angel eys) There will be no angels in my car :P

Should get them all mounted this weekend.

The question I have is why not trash the factory wiring run your own switch and then you can turn them on anytime you want? Then you don't have to deal with the hasel of splicing in wires. Heck if you want to keep the factory look then just run the new wires up into your headliner and install them into the factory switch..

This weekend if I get time I will be removing the door molding and the headliner and routing all the new wire to the switch and then I can run my fogs (driving lights) anytime I want.

However I will probably only run them with my low beams as the officers here in town are really cracking down on people running there fogs/driving lights with high beams.

I prefer to retain the factory wiring. The factory switch is also illuminated when the lights are on. Didn't want to route new wires up there and mess with all that. Getting through the firewall is a pita, also.

As far as being scolded by a cop.......you're not supposed to run highbeams with another car coming anyway

I did this by simply grounding a single wire.

and heres what i found on the passenger side, i know my pic isnt the greatest, but is it that green with black stripe wire sticking out from the rest? i tested this wire quickly, and found it not to be a power or ground wire, or i had a bad ground to start out with, what do you think?

My 2 way switch has 2 leds that illuminate

That blue one is cool at night.... 3000mcd lights up the whole ceiling console.
