What would be the best way to get angel eyes on an evo?
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 :thumbup:

Do you have LED low beam lights for the 2013 EVO X GSR with SSS package. The ebay ones I had stopped working after a week
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

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

Want to replace interior lights with led also the light in my trunk. What would the price on that be.
We have different bulb models available for each location for a level of brightness that fits the look you are going for.

The pricing depends on which bulbs you select, but ships free if you send us a PM or mention that you are on the EvoX forum (U.S. members only)

Feel free to give us a call for more information or opinions: (314) 205-3033

any updates on this? I heard the 2013-up have reversed polarities on the DRL for the factpry HIDs. that's why a DRL LED I had for my 2008 doesn't work for my 2013.

Will it work in a halogen headlight housing?
It will physically operate, yes. The focal point and light distribution will not be quite the same as a halogen bulb, resulting in a slightly increased level of glare, just like any other HID conversion kit. For most people, it's quite acceptable, especially in newer headlights. Thank you.
