The 7" round crosshairs you've seen 'em in the Brit mags... performance VW and the such.
They have the bling bling :wink:
but just how well do they light? Do they have a good dispersion pattern? what about vertical cutoff so as not to blind on-comers :shock:
How do they compare to In-Pro crystal clears or Hella...:?:

i haven't seen them working, but looking at them in the shop, I would say they'd work good. The cross hair is really thin to it's won't block the light any. Other then that they look like the crystal clears which i've heard make driving amazing.

Well I bought the In Pro Crystal Clears and they do make the small inner high beam in clear for those who are interested I have yet to put them on waiting for the rears clear/red to come in to have the full effect

Let us know how they work. Personally I like the beam of the Hella's but if one ever breaks from a rock or something, they are expensive to replace new.

Don't forget to put them on a relay. I have 2 friends, one has his on a relay and they are brighter then the one that doesn't. The friend that has his on the relay just bought the inner's to go with the outers. They look really good.

I got a wiring harness from E-bay for my H4 conversion for $26. Works great, and much less of a pain than hacking a relay.

It included OEM connectors to the relays, and also included the relays.

Nice. When we did my friends conversion on his Golf to single rounds he got the stuff from FK. It included grill, rad support, FK crystal clears, and plugs. He didn't get any relays, so he's looking into it now.
