I got these delivered 2 days ago from Electrical Connection and am going to try and install them this weekend.

Those are the same lamps as the SoCal's I installed on my Wing. You WILL have install issues. Don't get me wrong they are bright as all get out and they work great but they are not plug and pray. I ended up making a video series on them. Bottom line is that the plate on the lamp needs to be about half an inch thick or the spring will not hold them in place. Watch the fix video at the bare minimum.

Was looking at Walmart.com the other day and noticed that they have LED's that look like our H7's. They are available at a very good price. Wonder if they would work?
