up, they were too low. They were firing straight down maybe a little more than 2 car lengths and being on these dark roads doing 50mph can't high beam cause of on coming traffic, it sucked. My wife's IS LED's are amazing great projection and coverage so I knew mine were wrong. Btw these high beams by far the most amazing brights I have ever seen, well on our cars. I know those off road light bars you see on jeeps or trucks are crazy.

Is that the F-Sport SK Style ebay front lip fitted on the non-Fsport bumper?

Well done! Did you have to make any modifications to the lip? Some of us discussed the topic of using ebay fsport lips on our non fsport bumpers below. We took a chance on the L-Style one which worked out great also. Looks like the SK Style one you have looks clean too with the color combo and being lowered thus hiding any potential gaps.

Thanks. Did you DIY? I want to learn how to vinyl wrap at least the mid section bumper.

I did not, had it all done at the same time when I had the roof, spoiler, handles, and mirrors wrapped too
