As I said on tobyo's post they look great.
I can imagine they give a pretty good flood at high beam.
What do they cost landed?

About $550. There is the Baja Squadron Sport model which is the same shape and would be about half the price and about half the brightness.

Wondering if you could take a pic from inside the cabin with the high beams and spotlights on? At night obviously :P Interested to see the difference. The stock fog lights don't do anything for visibility - I really only use them with my parkers on for the "aesthetics" seeing as all modern cars have DRL's.

There photos don't do the amount of light, brightness, distance and spread justice.

First photo is low beam. The second is high beam including the spot lights.

Looks like you just photoshopped the trees out of the low beam shot.

Do you find you use them much or are they just a novelty?

I don't think any of us can pass that test with our car mods if you really want to boil it down :lol:

No photoshopping :) I used my phone camera. I said the photo doesn't do the spot lights justice because the camera doesn't capture all the light, on both the low beam and high beam photos. In the low beam photo there is a large contrast between where there is light and where there is not - hence why it may seem the trees have been photoshopped out. On the high beam photo the light is brighter, wider and longer in reality vs the photo.

I use my high beam often when driving around the suburbs. As such the spot lights now provide much better light when I use high beam. Given the improvement I may now start using high beam even more often. Note: I have the spot lights automatically come on with high beam so no need to use a seperate switch. If you don't use your high beam much today then they may be more a novelty. For me they are not a novelty at all - they are great and I will get lots of use of them :)

Did you guys ever consider a LED light bar. Would have been considerably cheaper or were you going down the stealth look?
