Chris
one huge benefit of LEDs are that they are not affected by weather at all, unlike CCFLs.

Nice, thats great to hear. Has anyone else seen the DEPO headlights? They look to be near OEM quality which is great. I'm concerned about condensation building up in the lenses...

From what i was told, these particular lights were sealed at the factory, so there's no way condensation will build up. That is just what I was told, but you can never be so sure.

Thanks RP, I appreciate you responding to my questions I see you are in Boston. Once you get them up and installed I might swing up and check 'em out, if that's cool with you. Looks like a great mod. I watched over the years all the modifications (starting with the $1500 mod by Mobile Innovations) and kind of sat back. Maybe now is the time to do this...

Chris
