No link or pics so i dont know what they look like. But it sounds like you should put them below the headlight not AS the headlight.

So are you saying that you want to put the LED strip on the top portion of the headlight ON the headlight instead of the now-fashionable under the headlight audi look?

hmm...there is someone on the forum with them on the top AND bottom i think. Y not just put them on top of the headlight NOT on the headlight. Like what u would do on the bottom, but on the top lol

Im saying that u could most likely open the hood and fit the LED strip on top of the headlight. Prob would be a lot easier then doing it to the bottom cuz u dont have to take the headlight out.

Yea for the bottom, each headlight needs to be removed, the strip needs to be applied and then the headlight rests on top of the strip. On the top may be easy cuz u dont have to remove the headlights so u should try it!!!

Well on the bottom its easy cuz u have the weight of the headlight on top of the strip. On the top i cant help u with cuz i dont have it on top i have it on the bottom. I would think that the tape would be strong enough but maybe glue it or use stronger tape.

On the bottom YES it can. I have them and so do a shitload of people on the forum. It absolutely can handle the weight. Have had them on for months now and still working great.
