    Hi, was wondering whether a mod like this could be executed...

    currently looking for the pro's n con's. if the pro's overweight the con's then i'll definitely go ahead...

    As we all know ftzone is selling angel eyes.. was wondering whether lights like these could be modded to become standard headlights?

    was thinking of using 1 pair for each side. which means 2 x angel eye = 1 headlight

    would it:
    1. produce too much glare?
    2. produce too much heat?
    3. stress the bulbs due to excessive use?
    4. have a low viewing radius?

    afaik.. angel eye spot lights usually used as spot light oni, nv see ppl use it as headlight.. comments plz...

    IMHO,

    The angel eyes spot lights is using H3 Bulbs

    No High Beam for H3.
    Most halogen lamps creates high temperature.
    Drilling the correct diameter hole in your headlamps is extremely difficult. The reflective components may crack while drilling.

    If you want to replace your standard headlamps with the spot lights you can proceed.. however you'll still need to fork out $$ to patch the holes created after removing your headlamps & send it for painting.

    I do not recommend such modification. Just buy the spot lights and make it as spot lights not headlamp...
