yes, but his lenses are textured so you cant see the glue, and the LED'* (which would show as hot spots) are behind his black "eyebrow")

By no means and I saying it can't be done and look awsome, but you will have to do a better job and keep everything clean looking.

well if you can figure it out perfectly (looks like you have a good jump on it) there is some money waiting for you.

I have some ideas floating around, but I will not take my own HL appart to try them, I would need a junk yard HL, which I am slowly working towards getting.

they also have some negatives. (that go along with any CCFL) they draw more, they must get a solid 12 volts to their ballast (transformer thing) and they break pretty easy.

You also get a limited set of sizes. But if you can find them and make them work, please do so.

they sell the kits for the e46 bimmer, in sizes: 10cm/11cm, 12cm/13cm, 13cm/14cm (inner/outer diameter)

What kind of transformer would be needed? I am sure we can come-up with ideas and make it work..
