You need to take pictures with the flash off. Just hold the camera steady..

His are probably LEDs i would guess..

And the LED was like.. 39.99 or less.

oznium.com

Ask him about his turn signals.

And I have no clue.

i think i need to remove the black insert behind my grille. But his are also a little lighter than mine in blue department. But i do like them and the company was great to work with..

They look pretty cool from the front when i have just my 3000k fogs on and those leds in the grille.

6000k HID heads. 3000k Fogs.

And I would love to get me some 8000k or 10000k for the blue color. but the 6000ks output wonderfully.

Yeah I was surprised how unblue my 6000k were tonight, I was expecting a little bit but none at all. I think I'm gonna go with 4300k for fogs, just to keep some of that whiteness.

1. Cause i wanted the blue and yellow look.
2. yellow = fog pwnage.

My heads are vvme.com
my fogs are autoluminate on ebay.

I recommend both.. the 2nd company is cheaper though.
