    I’m thinking about upgrading to these BD lights. Sport wide cornering
    Anyone use them?
    Are they a lot brighter than stock?
    easy to install?
    Are they solid?
    Do they vibrate like the stock setup?
    Plug and play wiring?
    Any pics would be helpful.
    Thanks!

    Things are super bright, I run the amber every day but I’m waiting for the SAE approved fogs they will be releasing soon( they had released them but pull them to update them for better pattern)

    Super bright is encouraging. How was the install? Any cutting or splicing of the wiring?

    I have the amber as well. I second the super bright and I am also waiting to see what happens with the SAE approved ones. Super easy to install. I don't use them all the time because of how bright they are, I mainly use them in place of my high beams. And they were awesome at night while in Yellowstone National Park. I also have the clear lights on ditch brackets.

    U should contact BD they had problems with the lenses and new ones will be getting released, so they will send you new ones once they get approved

    I'm curious to see how they perform compared to BD. The price on them is really good. They said they were shipping early December when I placed my order.

    I thought you had the BD pro lights which are brighter than the sports?

    Maybe I can help. Here are the BD Sports in Wide Cornering. They are definitely brighter then stock. If you want even brighter go for the Pro's. If you drive in snow/rain/fog/dust get the amber...or if you get clear....spend the 11 dollars or whatever and get the amber lenses. I didnt run mine all the time because they are brighter. However I don't think I got flashed from other drivers when they were on. Already put these on the wifes brand new 4runner too. If I ever swap out my factory led's on this Tundra I will run pro's this time since I am not lifted like the last one.

    I did pick these up today. Install is easy, just switch the stock bezel to the new BD.
    One small mistake was I crossed the polarity on the supplied harness and popped a fuse.

    Now the bad, they bounce just like stock. Pretty bummed for $350- I guess it’s Macgyver time to find a fix. Damn...

    Good call. Isn’t the zip tie a fix for the light moving in the plastic mount ? i might be misunderstanding the fix?
    My problem is the whole black bezel moves on the truck. The bezel just snaps in the top and bottom but there’s a lot of play.

    I was told to JB weld (very small) a couple of spots on the back of the bezel and pop it in. Let it cure etc.
    Not sure about that tho.

    That’s exactly what I did. Zip tie on the side of the bracket to secure it. No bounce for me and I’ve had them on since last February

    That’s weird that the housings move. Mine didn’t. In either the truck or the 4Runner. Did you make sure the EPDM rubber was on both sides of the tabs on the top I believe? That would help secure it.

    I heard they are releasing a new version of the sae. Not holding my breath for them. We will see how these dd work.

    I did but I wanted to run aux lights on the streets so I thought I’d give these a try.

    Yep. Same thing with stock fogs. I do have painted bumper caps, I’ve heard that’s why they are not snug
