New Upgraded Headlights

Finally got word that my custom headlights from The Lighting Firm just shipped and I'm really excited to see how they turned out in person. Very happy with how they look in the photo so far.

They are OEM blacked out halogen housings, upgraded with Bi-Xenon projectors and LED daytime running lights, with blacked out side markers. (They used FXR Projectors and 35w Morimoto system)

Considering how much trouble and time people were putting into the OEM Bi-Xenon mod, this alternative was much cheaper and reliable with the plug and play harness they are providing. Although, I still would've opted for the OEM had those previously mentioned issues not been so hard to overcome.

And as bad as I just wanted them for the LEDs, I was really disappointed with how bad the light output was for the stock halogen setup and that was what ultimately made me do the upgrade. Once you go xenon (my previous car), it's hard to go back to halogen.

Anyways, I can't wait to get these installed! Will post pics as soon as I do.

I think I may have gotten them for a discounted price because they were the first ones they've done, but I paid around $800 and the process took just over a month to get them done and shipped.

My last truck had Halogen and this is my first one with Xenon (Adaptive to boot) . Love the output especially on winding mountain roads and no moon to help. A nice bright white light.

I'll never go back.

That's a good price. Can you post or screenshot what you selected for your custom lights as far as the options of what you selected and didn't select?

Thanks,

Thanks,
I didn't choose any options from a selection list on their site.

I coordinated the idea with someone via email first and then we decided what to do there.

Re: New Upgraded Headlights

I think a neighbor did something very similar in his 13 Charger to make it look similar to the 15 Charger. Can't wait to see them on yours.
