They are very bright. Smd is new new brighter version of led. They use chips instead of led. You can see these a mile away.

I think one or the other would look better. Either have the halos, and not the "audi strip" or the "audi strip" and not the halos. But it looks great, and if you like it, keep it the way it is :thumbsup: The halos might look better if they were CFM tube. I dont know if the SMD's look right.

Hmm, I would hold off on the "Ultimate" tag, until you retrofit some LS430 projectors into them. :yes: :D

If it was my mod, I would at least make sure the strip and the halos had the same color temperature, but I'm a lil OCD with things matching. :hopeless

Overall though, good work. As long as you got it the way you want it to look, that's what matters most. :thumbsup:

SMDs and LEDs don't like heat. My only concern would be that being so close to the low/high beam bulbs might shorten the life of the SMDs. :m2:

Nah, that was the look that I wanted. Turned lots of heads and got plenty of compliments, but over time, some of the LEDs would go out. Not sure if it was the soldering job on the strips, the heat from the headlights, or what caused it. Plus, I've noticed a lot more rides around town are starting to do similar stuff, so I took mine off. Time to find something new and unique :yes:

You can go for an "audi" look and add a strip at he bottom of it orr you can try to add just a strip down the side (by grill) of the headlight. Kind of like what the yukon has for there aftermarket headlights.

Great work on it but like they said the smd leds wont last as long with the heat around them.

but on the better side of things leds last a very long time.

I can appreciate the effort, time, and work that went into this. With that said, i'd take my stock headlights over that configuration any day of the week. WAYYYY too much **** going on in my opinion. I prefer a clean and tasteful look though, so it may just be me.
