I am looking to get some L.E.D.s to creat the Audi style headlights and have been doing some research. I found two places one being a company that I have had 50/50 on the quality and experience factor...

The first:
Side Emitting "Headlight" LED Strip
I have purchased interior conversions for both the Altima and the Xterra, the blue for the Altima looks great and works fine the Pink for Xterra both modules only have a max 50% of the 24 L.E.D.s that work... I don't know if it is just because they are pink that they fail cause the installation between the two Nissans is the same. So already a bad personal experience.

The second:
Pilot Automotive/12 Volts 18 in. white phantom LED interior and exterior strip (CZ-3009W) | LED Light Bar | AutoZone.com_
And this one being because it was the only one they have instock online. I havn't checked any of my stores local to see if they have some floating around...

Anyhow any thoughts on these two or any other suggestions.

The cool thing about oznium's is that you don't have to settle for the 8000K color, they have neutral white (which i am guessing is 5000K), and warm white. I haven't tired them, but i've been looking for 5000K ;ed strips.

I am going to guess that 5000 just takes the "blue" tint out...
I couldn't find anything on the intesity of the pilot ones to know which white they are.

At this point I will take which ever is going to stand the test of time and look good doing it.

Because truely they are all roughly the same price within a few bucks.... But if one will outlast the other or if i will get a decent enough warrenty.

Oznium I know is 1 year.

im sorry i didnt look at the link. the oznium strips i was referring to were these...

Flexible LED Strips

i haven't dealt with the one you posted but they seem to be the same as most of the other strips out there. as far as size goes(thickness).

the oznium flex strip that i posted will not fit under the headlight

Yeah I see those ones are much bigger. Some of the reviews that I read about the original one I posted said there was some issues with sections of the light not functioning after a bit of use... I know with my pink lights they were fine with sending out replacements... It's just a big hassle.
