    I'm dead set on ordering the dual projectors from K5OS. I understand that the new lens provide a better, clearer line of sight than the OEM US spec headlights. I have a '15 SXL so it would be the HID set up. My question is, has anyone upgraded the stock D1S bulbs that ships with the dual...

  12. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Well I finally got these cornering lights to work. It turns out there's already + power to the bulbs but the high draw of amperage from the 55w H1 causes the LED taillights to flicker and turn off. Another set back is that there isn't a true ground to complete the circuit. So, I had make...

    So last weekend I was over at Concept 3 and we were able to enable the DRL function of the KDM OEM Dual Projection headlights.
