WeissLicht Q's?

At Bimmerfest East I bought the newest version of the WeissLicht Angel Eyes Kit for $100. When I opened it up, 2 cores and 2 harnesses, no actual light rings. I didn't really think of it, but now I have some question. Do the harnesses and core just force more power to the stock lights? I feel that that is a terrible way to produce brighter light. Unless the stock lights can handle that extra power without strain on the lights lifespan; Which I assume, if they could that they would have made the lights brighter to begin with. So is it suggested to get new lights for this mod, or the stock ones capable?

Those are LEDs that replace the halogen bulbs that light your current rings. No harm here.

I would return them if you can. They are rebranded cheap Chinese made bulbs. You can find them on eBay for under $50

It wasn't my first choice.. More of an impulse buy actually.

But I've read good things so I'm going to try it.

Yeah I am not very knowledgeable about lights, but I'm looking for a good DIY.

Okay I know see up with the lights! I got the old one out, and the new one.. partially.. in. Small opening with limited room to move. I'll finish it tomorrow; I tried to start this too late at night.

I do have a crappy picture from my iPhone. I have to say I'm please with the results. Bright white LED. No codes. Easy install.. Well on WiessLicht's side of this.

Small hands are a must for the install.

Okay so I've been off and on struggling with this for two days. At one point I thought I had it in properly, but I could see it was in on an angle. Once I get it on I don't know where the grooves are on the housing to get it in properly. Should I just remove the entire housing, install LED, then reinstall housing?
