crystalworks is on a distinguished road
True, a ton of options for sure. I went with the ones I've used for years (10+) and haven't had any ring failures. They are the semi with the flat top. I forget the diameter. I know RB and I talked about it extensively before I did them so I could probably look at the old communique.

I'm more curious to see what you do with the projectors themselves. The e53's are okay, especially with some nighbreakers in them, but I've seen much cleaner and sharper cutoff lines for sure.

Funny thing, the jinx is real. Went outside awhile ago to load something into the X5 and noticed the rings did not illuminate upon unlock but still worked upon ACC/run position. Investigated a bit and found that the 5pin relay I used had crapped out after 2 years. Have many on hand so easy fix... just funny the timing having just replied saying I was happy with mine.
