Default upgraded to projector head light lamps plus LED bulbs

I did not like the yellowish light output of the eom headlights. So I decided to upgrade to (sort of) projector lamps and LED light bulbs for a reasonable price of $59. The light output is white and is brighter than the stock bulbs. For the price, I'd say it's a pretty good & cheap upgrade: $28.50 for the lamps and $30 for the LED bulbs. The install was easy- probably 20 min per side. Oh the lamp assy has two built in LED running lights. I did not hook it to power yet because I do not have extra wires to use. I plan on using the cig aux socket to power them so they are lit even when the headlights are off but with lamp assy on upright position. Hmm, that could lower my mpg coz it will create a drag..LOL.
The only thing that did not work well is the oem lamp brackets. The new lamp assy is little bit bigger that the oem one. I had to use some longer screws to use the bracket. I could trim it with a dremel tool, but I was too lazy and excited to just make it work and see the results before the wifey calls me for another honey-do...hahaha!

I tested the running lights by powering it to a portable 12volt battery jumper. The output is not bright but good enough for running lights IMO. Of course, brighter would be best. Hey for the money, it's all good!
