F01 ICE VXX Testing Completed (angel eyes pnp upgrade)

After a few months on a test car, we finally can confirm 1000% that our ICE VXX works with 2 resistors on the car.

It will not work with a single resistor. 2 Photos shown below illustrate the differences and how to install it.

You have to adjust it for maximum visibility. These images were taken with -2.0 EXP setting so they are dimmer than real life so you can see the exact way they will look like in the day time.

You can get yours here:

The benefits of this unit over an HID system is that with an HID system, they look really bright on the high beam, but only average on the low beam.
Further, HID systems will burn the ends of the fiber optics and burn out the rings over time, so that the rings will eventually get dimmer and duller and will damage the internals to the point where it will become brittle.

HID are good in short term usage only.

Halogen bulbs in comparison are a good inexpensive alternative and do a little to change the color.

There are many LED options, we believe this one is the brightest without any errors
