I like how it fills in the odd shaped hole completely and the gasket is a nice touch.

Good job Lewis! :thumbup:

Looks nice. I was also thinking of maybe a 2-stage setup with a large, bright LED "driving light" cluster in the upper/inside corner and a series of conspicuity LEDs in an L-shape along the outside and lower edges. Kind of like the Audi eyebrow lights.

how much light will be lost behind the cowl? it looks like the lamp is bigger than the opening.

Looks way nicer than stuffing a round one on. That should work well. Nice work!

For us to be able to fill the hole, the light has to be bigger than the cutout. However, due to the fluting on the lens, almost no light is lost. If I had to slap a percentage on it, maybe 2%.

Hiya
Yes they look very nice but my concern is that the headlights on the 2012 will be dull looking without LED'S to match are any LED'S for the headlights available ?

I have a 2012 on order and was going to fit the honda LEDS lower lights and possibly HID'S (have them on my Beemer) they are great! on the headlights
the lights need to look all white..... or all yellow can't do with the mixed look it spoils it.

please keep any 2012 stuff coming....:thumbup:
