Headlights from Carmate

Postby Bigdamos » Tue Nov 04, 2014 5:12 pm

Hi Everyone,

Just curious if anyone has used carmate for headlights? Also has anyone used these sort of headlights? Below is a link to the page of the headlights. All opinions are wanted.

If you think these are bad could you suggest an alternative.

Cheers Damon

One of our member tried buying that but ended up getting the dotted ones instead and that carmate had said they were out of stock of those ones.

I was just looking at these ones because they had the solid line of LED's rather than the doted version.

Also the straight line as well, rather than the little wave like design

Mars performance have the brightest ones. Don't be fooled by the pictures. They may not seem as bright in real life as they do in the pictures.

Should I just get the Mars ones with the straight strip of LED's? Then add some HID's.

Next question haha. Were they easy to install, obviously you have to take the bumper out, but are they easy to connect in? Also did you put the LED's as Daytime Running lights or as parkers?

Personally I wouldn't run 55w HID's on headlights with plastic lenses... but that;s just me
