Default Skoda Octavia Angel Eyes and LEDs

Hey Guys

A friend of mine got Angel Eyes and LEDs done on his L&K.
As the work was done in Delhi and the guy lives in Jalandhar, the testing of the lights were done on my car.

Here are some pics
Any comments or suggestions are welcome

Cheers
Abhinav

somehow I feel this set up does not suit the OCTY. and the older indicator quarter piece along side the new headlights adds to the "out of place" look..

by the way - obvious question - how much does it cost ?

From where did your friend get this done?
It looks like shoddy workmanship..a couple of led's are not working,and the led strip isnt even perfectly horizontally aligned.My suggestion,have the side indicators painted black as well.,because it looks a littke odd.

The LED strip is spoiling the whole look.
Are these custom made projector lights ?

8k. The Black indicators were being prepared , but as i was in a hurry, had to put back the original one.
The ones that will go on the final product and the car in jalandhar will have black indicators too.

I mentioned its in Testing phase.
Will run it for a week to see the problems that occur. I will give your suggestion about the alignment before giving the lights to the guy back to be shipped.

Thanks for the comments dude.
The spread is the same as in the original lights.

Somehow i dont feel its suiting the Octy much as far as looks are concerned. Probably the better choice for this is a Laura.

yeah abhinav, i think only audi should stick to the Darkened Led concept. Our cars were'nt made that way, and they look the best the way they are most of the time, anyhow adding them to your skoda tottaly spoils the look. stay away from led's for headlamps, it looks very unattractive, and if you still want to get it done, look for a good group, that can do a good job.


cheers.

My comments echo what most of them have put forth. The LEDs look totally out of place.

Is this headlight assembly similar to the one on the Laura ?

I think it would look better if it had twin angel eyes, but the bottom LED strip can certainly go. Although quite a decent job.
