LED Headlight Retrofit for B5


We'll reserve judgement of whether this is a tasteful OEM mod or... not until after we see the application on a car, but you have to give the clever award of the day to Raid HP in the naming of their latest product. Retrofits of Audi's distinctive new headlight design were inevitable in the aftermarket, but just what to call them remained ambiguous up until now. The German purveyor of tuning bits has come up with a handle, something that both describes the look and takes a jab at Audi's leading competitor BMW. The name "Devil Eyes" has been applied. We're looking forward to seeing how they actually look on older Audi models such as the B5 A4 and C5 A6.

I saw this in the RSS feeds today and had hope that was the last I'd see of it. I guess I was wrong.

eek.

not very subtle...you might could, maybe, possibly, sort of pull that off with smaller, more abundant LEDs across the entire bottom of the headlight. the line they took just looks...

What they should of did is cut that line in half. Then take away the part going up the side of the headlight. Then maybe I'll think about it.

i think this is going to go down in flames like the cheapo knock off bmw halo's

Yeah, I suspect you might be right. I'd be curious to see it on a car, and I think the naming is really clever, but I'll save my opinion on it until I see it on a car.
I wonder though, are the housings different on cars with HIDs and would these even work?

the housings are the same, but the lights pictured dont even look like they are for a b5
the only way i see this working out is if they were custom fitted into stock housings.. those just look cheap

actually, no, no it's not. demon eyes would have been the right choice if going that direction. either way http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
