Very nice! Smoking my stock headlights and adding angel eyes has probably been my favorite aesthetic mod to the car. Nice to see it on the newer headlights

Will a bit but since he did it the right way instead of just slapping some tint on the cover then the bulb is not dimmed just the reflectors. The 17+ head and tail lights can stand some dimming down anyway! They are grossly over bright normally.

Are they LED on 2017ís or is that only on 2020ís? Getting the light pattern and brightness correct with LEDís must be difficult. Moreso with headlights than taillights. They are way more efficient which is nice. I kind of miss good old HID and Xenon. The halogen projectors on my FR-S are just ok.
