Ecosport Rules,

Photo. No. 7 in this post speaks for itself. Isn't that one real mean look!

That reminds me of autobots from Transformers. I wish I could fit in those DRLs and Projectors, but I'll need another auto-loan for that. I'm planning to be satisfied with the Philips Xtreme Vision Bulbs for the meantime.

But I'll keep watching your car. Stickering/Paint Job if any? This dude has it all to become the Mr. Olympia of all ESs out there.

It is a good idea to install both DRLs and projectors together other wise you have to pry open the headlight assembly twice.

The DRLs double up as indicators too

Coverage is very good, will upload the pictures soon.Butteryfly clip is better than a hole saw fitment as it allows 4 way adjustment.

I upgraded the OEM bulbs with extreme vision H4. there is a slight improvement but not major improvement.
whereas the upgrade of my fiesta H1 & H7 are a major improvement. i bought philips extreme for all.

The lights look totally amazing with DRLs. I wonder why ford removed it in the first place!

Would really love to know if we can just get a set of HLs with those. Wouldn't wanna open the lights as soon as its delivered! lol

Acquired some pics of the projectors (dont mind the cheap fog light drls)

  • Feels planted on high speed cornering
  • No change in fuel efficiency
  • 20 percent improvement in braking efficiency.
How much did the Tyres cost you? And how much did they pay for the Good Years ?
