CD Winshield Trim w/lights

Hey all,

I just added the CD trim pieces and I was wondering opinions on whether or not I should just remove or replace the stock lights. TBH, I had intention of just taking stock off, but when I saw the CD was set up as add on, and not replacement, and saw that the stock is actually part of the fairing mount. So now either I have to keep the stock, or dish out more $$ for eliminators, or replacements... Any thoughts?

Thanks

If it were me, I'd change out the stock amber bulbs for the CD ringz. White driving lights then turn amber when signal is on. I that'd look great with the windshield trim you have on.

You will have to swap out the amber lense for clear or smoked so the white ring shows. Otherwise it'll be amber ring.

Looks good!! I like that the trim lights actually match the headlights!

+1 on this. They works as good as they look.

Dragon,

I am looking to get those lights. Something to think about is just changing your stock turn signals with the CD ones. I did that first and I really like the look, your stock turn signals become daytime spotlights and change just like you trim ones. I think the match looks great. But of course there is a cost (~$100) with anything. I guess it just depends on if you want the more light and visibility or not. I don't know how much the eliminators are, but if they are even close I would just change to the CD turn signals. Just me though.

I have the ciro3d turn signals and they are truly plug and play and come with the lens. They look great...

I picked mine up today. Got them in black. took all of 10 minutes to put on. Turn bulbs are next, swapping them out with CD Bullet Ringz.
