You will have to put the housings in an oven, heat them up, separate the lens, mount the rings using a small amount of clear adhesive, and re-seal them using automotive rubber butyl

We will have a DIY in the future, along with an EvoX specific halo kit

LEDs have come a long way in the past few years, but there currently aren't any designs out there that will be as reliable as a quality HID conversion kit, while still providing enough usable light output.

Most of the options out there have a cooling fan, which typically fails within the first few weeks. Also, the vendors selling these LED low-beam replacements market them with absurd lumen output ratings. I've seen a vendor claim 9,000 lumens from an LED low-beam replacement (OEM HIDs produce around 3,200 lumens).

We are working on a few designs for LED low-beams, but stick with a quality HID conversion kit

Thanks!

We've had a local customer install our LEDs in his DRL location, but it may require slight modifications IIRC

I will have more information on them soon once we get another Evo X in our new studio for comparison shots

Apparently the connector just needed to be re-pinned. We will have a write up once we get another Evo X in
