last week I installed RoundEyes headlamp upgrades. They're great - they have a more modern look than the stock lamps (but not outlandish) with a very clear glass, and the light beam, while not equal to a BMW's lights, is very good. It's fairly "white" and bright, and so far I haven't had any troubles with people flashing their lights at me (I did do an aiming after installing them).
I also finished installing my PIAA 520 fogs. As some of you may have seen in the electrical/audio forum, I tried installing a headlamp harness from suvlights.com, but couldn't get it to work right (the high/low beam filaments came on together). I spoke with them, they had an idea to try (which I did, but with same result), so I guess they can't resolve it for me. I need to talk with them again. Meanwhile I just removed the new harness, and wired the fog harness directly into the low beam lead in the factory harness (so the fogs come on only when the low beams are on, and shut off when I turn on the high beams). I did it without cutting the lead, so if for any reason I want to go back to "stock", I can do it without any trouble.
Here's what the RoundEyes and new fogs look like (note I didn't want the flashy white PIAA logo, so I painted the rock shields with Krylon semi-flat black).
