I went the the Blitkrieg/Suncoast GTG yesterday and thought I would do some more advertising for the business. To answer your questions:

1) Yes they are illegal with your lights on. Day or Night.

2) You can have them on during the day as long as your lights are off.

3) These are actually just regular ecodes with yellow vinyl film over them. Very easy to add or remove.

4) Yes, each light adds 5 hp.

Since I work into the evening, I'll be pulling them off tonight. They got a lot of looks at the show. I'll be putting these on for every AutoX and show I attend.

They look different, but i like them. I saw another pic of them on a white M3 and they looked sweet. I wonder how they would look on a white a4

i have a pair of h/l vinyl covers for an a4/s4 in the classifieds section for sale. I have the clear ones on the h/l's and the yellow ones on my fogs. they are easy to install and look really yellow like the Lemans race series,etc....

are these like the static vinyl that you car reuse over and over aqain or is it just like a sticker ?
and how do you get it to curve and convex?

No this is not the static vinyl. It's made from 3M style backing, so it would be pretty tough to remove for reuse.

As far as curving, the A4 headlights were the easiest lights I've ever done. The wrap around took little to no work at all. I almost didn't even need the hairdryer.

I think it would look better on a different color car. Since you're in the vinyl sign business, can you get any of the tinted static vinyl? Depending on price, I'm SURE there'd be a market for them pre-cut! Just trying to get you a little business...[cool]

"Superdumped" did this a couple of years ago on his silver Avant but he used a light blue tinted material. It looked pretty good.

What do I need to get to do my tails smoked?

nickelmedia

We have the smoked available on the website

http://www.advanceg.com

It's under headlight/taillight conversions.

the tails look good, but the headlights are a bit much, try lightly smoking the headlights instead, see how that looks.

We're going to take example shots of all 3 colors. I'll post them here after it's done.
