    Is it possible to change out the white circular light? To me it looks half lit. I would like it to stand out more and just be brighter.

    Are those modified OEM lights or aftermarket?

    @thumper7799 could probably tell you best, though it's hard by looking at pics. I don't have them to compare, but they look pretty normal in the picture. Is one side different than the other?

    Even those of us that have retrofitted headlamps experience this. My panamera shrouds get drowned out by the actual headlights being turned on.


    I don't believe there's a lot that can be done other than have your halos lit up in a different color.

    @NurEye , I'm a girl! Lol. I hope this helps a bit. I like the look of the these lights because you don't see them a lot, however, the brightness does suck.
