Yellow eyebrows

I am replacing my amber angle eyes with bright white ones. They are 35w hyper white and won't throw codes. Easy bulb replacement with lifetime warranty. $35 for the set.

Next I want to get rid of the yellow eyebrows. Any ideas? Has anyone found a way to turn them off or make them white so they match?

Can I ask where you found the 35w Angel Eyes for $35.00? Do you have a pic. of the new ones on the car? I want to replace my angel eyes for white but hate the price tag they are asking.

$29 actually.

There's another even brighter kind, the LED upgrade for $99, but I just wanted the white color, not turn the car into a disco.

Burger are great people to deal with, top notch customer service and know their stuff. Jason is your man for bulbs and lighting. Just email him questions.
Terry is the guy for performance enhancement.

Put the Arc Angels in yesterday. They are definitely whiter and brighter. The inner ring is very bright, the outer merely white.
It looks better than the old jaundiced angel eyes, but a lot more toned down than the full LED types.
For $29 a pair I don't regret doing it. It does improve the appearance of the car.

Btw, I put one in and started the car to see the difference. Stopped it and took the other one out. Burned the palm of my hand pretty good. Be careful with those suckers. Even 15 secs heats them up like you wouldn't believe. Don't mess with them unless they have cooled off.
