Not Bad at all well done

However I think you should have just left the lights on the headlamps, and should have put them inside the lamps Amazing DIY job though.

I would definitly go for it. It should look cool on my black SX4. I think the same can be done for Angel eye look.

And also why the console indicator was removed? Any particular reason apart from both of them not looking good together?

I think he disabled the console indicator to make it look more attractive.
the L.E.D. lights would not be much noticed if he kept them connected.

Tabrez, your DIY stuff looks too cool.
Iam trying something like this soon, might talk to your provided contact soon.

LED`s add to the smile of the already smiling SX4. But the thing I am worried about is, how long will these last?Are these water proof? I remember I had a similar strip of LEDs in my bike but as it encountered the first rain, it passed away.

It was just removed to enhance only the LED strip as an indicator, else there is no other reason for it.

The LED's are very much waterproof and has a gel type molding on it, so there is no chance of water getting inside.

Is the blinking speed of the indicators same as stock. I have seen LED modifications where the blinking speed of the indicators is different from stock when you put LEDs in.

Can i see your car in Bangalore? I am based in K'mgla? PM me your number and I'll call you up

All the LED's are waterproof just the adaptor and the controller used for them may be non-Waterproof , Hence your LED's Burned.

And also note that LED's typical life time is about 1 Lakh hours but most of China Made LED's burn at about 50,000 Hours.
