Actually its more expensive due to better built quality and brighter Halo rings.

I think noidaboy changed the colour of the parking bulb from orange to blue. Thats why it looks like 3 LED model in his avataar. One of the pics posted by him...

Hi Anil,

Just so that you are reassured of what you bought. You can expect them by Friday.

From personal experience, I'd ask anyone buying aftermarket projector kits, esp. cheaply available ones, to be very cautious, as they're not very reliable; the angel eyes could short, etc. If they're made by a reputed company and specifically for your car, I don't think it would be an issue; do check before you buy rather than repent later on.

In my personal opinion, I think angel eyes look hideous on a Swift; I prefer the stock headlights from an aesthetic point.

I'll take that as a purely personal perspective.

Before ordering the angels, I read this thread and the Swift Mods thread from start to end. Guess Vikram is one of the 1st Angels owners. I did have a chat with him too.. plus the posts by LBM, m4ugr8, s0uljah, noidaboy etc. And finally decided to give in.

Aesthetics/looks is a purely subjective issue. What A likes .. can be different from B's liking

vikram18,
I guess you have angels/projectors on your Civic. What is your opinion about the same ?

Yes, even I am talking about the Angels getting short/going kaput. No one on this forum has complained anything about it. But yes I agree changing anything might be a risk, but same goes with CAI/17" alloys etc etc.
