I was told that the demon eyes (projectors lighting up red) don't last that long due to the HID getting so hot that the LED wont last very long. So should I just go ahead and do the demon eyes and worry about it burning out later, or find some good COB red halos and wire those in instead of the demon eyes? As of now my headlights will have brilliant black bezels, red projector cutoff (will make the projector look red when lights are off), and either demon eyes or halos. Now I'm pretty good at wiring so that not a problem. What do you guys think?
I like demon eyes but i wouldn't do leds. See if you could find cffl halos for it

Demon eyes and halos are 2 different things. I wouldn't go CCFL halos, the newer COB ones are the best

Do you know if the COB rings can be cut Dave? I really want to do something like how the Oracle kit is but I really don't want to use Oracle...

Yeah I agree with Jeff I don't know about LEDs for headlights. However I don't see why red LEDs would burn hotter than any other LEDs. In fact the junction between the two semi conductors would be closer inside of a red LED. Therefore if anything it would run cooler and require less power than say a light colored LED. (I have a background in power electronics)

The headlights wouldn't be LED. They will still be the factory HID headlights. I will just have a red led wired to my switch panel that I can toggle on and off for the red demon eyes when the headlights are off. It's the heat from the HID bulb that will eventually make the led go out.

In other news.... She is finally lowered. Now just to wait a week or two to see how the springs settle.
