Got a set myself from socalmotogear and like them. They are nice and bright I have them on all the time as " Do you see me now? lights". The biggest drawback too them I felt was with the longevity of the plastic housing so close to the ground and grit. So after buying them I made plexi glass coverings to protect the face of the housing attaching them with industrial clear hoop and loop. They have been there for 60K miles so far and you can see they are getting fogged and pitted.


Its definitely time to make new covers.

These lights are well made and came with very clear installation instructions.
