Just installed my AngeliBrights...

The driver side is definitely a pain in the butt. I recommend unbolting the three bolts that hold that reservoir thingy...you'll have a easier time getting the cover off and the iBrights in. They look so much better than the original angel eyes. I did notice, however, that the angel eye around the driver side high beam is dimmer than around the passenger side high beam, and the others for that matter. Has anyone else noticed this on theirs? I had a hard time plugging in the iBright on the driver's side, so could that have somthing to do with it? Or does it have something to do with the iBright itself?

After pics with iBrights installed. If you look at the high beam angel eyes, you can see the lines on the driver side high beam, whileyou can't really see them on the others.

Looks good, I agree the iBrights are way overpriced even at the group buy price.

Looks great!

We chose to build using the highest grade of components. Many guys that bought the PIAA returned it and bought ours, its better all around.

Congrats on the mod!!! I recommend that u try to move the ibrights a little. I noticed something similar on the driver's side when I first installed them. I took the unit out, turned it, re-installed it and worked great
I gotta say guys that while the product is pricey, I'm 100% satisfied with it...

I'll try that tomorrow, just not looking forward to it since it's on the driver's side. I've got cuts left and right on my hands trying to finagle the light in and out.

Once I get the driver side high beam to be just as bright as the others, I'll be fully satisfied with the look. As for the price, you get what you pay for. If you crave a good steak, do you go to Sizzler or Ruth's Chris?

No question, unbolt the reservoir. Quick shot attached in Group Buy thread. They are bright for sure...

I was finally able to get all the angel eyes to light up at the same brightness. One of the iBrights was just a little harder to twist in flush against the light housing. What I ended up doing was switching the iBrights so that the more difficult iBright was on the passenger side light, which allowed me to see what I was doing better . Now I'm 100% satisfied with them. Thanks Dave.
