Projector Headlights - Opinions pls ?

Sonar Halo Projector Headlights - looking at these.



Run around price $250, sale $200 w/free shipping.

Can’t find any instructions but they look bolt in, not sure about wiring.

What does everyone thing, pls be as honest as you can be, usually not a problem with this site ?

I never thought I would be thinking of these.
The blk ones I have now look OK, but these are no additional work moding.
Waiting to hear about hi/low and wiring.

Those have no width, poor hotspot control and terrible distance.

These are those same one piece headlights.




These are my FX-R, sorry about the cutoff being weird looking its because of the way the front of the house is shaped.

I like the look of those, but that's a horrible cutoff. If it were me, I'd get them and retrofit with a quality HID projector, but that's gonna turn them into a $500+ set of headlights.

Yeah that is a poor attempt at a Highbeam It looks more like and afterthought. I actually say a pair (Same Company) the other day on a car and they glare horribly
