Default Vulcan lights in head lights or DRL

I've seen these lights on a vip m35 before but not in use. They look sick but i wonder:

if they fit the headlight housing.. how visibility is while on compared to the oem headlights..if the mini vulcans can be in the drl housing n used as the drls/high beams... and last but one of the important imo, if they look classy on the 3gs...

I know im asking for a lot so thank u all in advanced CL brothas! (n sistas)

Scroll down n look for vulcan lights n mini vulcan lights on the left side.

Not the best design website. here

It looks odd but surely it won't be very functional to give much light. It might be a little functional if there is a 300+ lumen bright LED behind each of those lens. Surely it's not LED cause with that kind of light it produce it also runs hot which need a huge heatsink.

I would think you would want to keep the HID's from the 3GS they look more suted on a 2GS, I wouldn't get them but thats my opinion.

I wouldn't be surprise if it's ONE cheap halogen inside. It's said to make for Lexus and it's only $250. If any decent light in there they would charge you $2million.

LEDs are getting popular and some high end vehicles are claiming to use LED headlights. You might want to check those out. For now as far as I know HID is the best. Lexus seem to be pushing for the "dynamic". And LED would give that.

you see those vulcan lights on jdm vip cars. they are cool looking. not sure about how well they work or how reliable they are. but these lights are unique and would give the GS a totally different look.

yeah that would be hard but it's probably possible just might cause some modification

I think these lights look kind of, well, bad. But that's just me. They would match a car with pink wheels, though.

idk why ppl so desperately want to change the OEM DRL/HIGHBEAM. I think and know and use OEM highbeams are awesome. It project the light strait out without cutoff or anything and a lot of light too. But most of all the light is instant, and this is the main reason HID is not good as Highbeam.

If you really want to stand out so bad than install this and I am 100% sure you will turn heads... even a blind guy will turn to look at your awesome car. http://deezcarlashes.com/
