according to some reviews on here...yes. a lot more 6 owners are leaning towards the Eagle Eyes brand. projector light with halos. i'm still rockin the stock housings with HID's and they do the job for me

SUMMARY

DO NOT GET SPYDERS - they are CRAP product.

Spyders are literally shit in every aspect of a headlight - quality and function

_________________________________________________________________

Spyders

Spyders have CRAP light out put- not safe to drive at night. big dark spot in the middle. cut off line is crap and shoots light EVERYWHERE randomly

Halos are dull, leds are crap. people have issues with it all.

you also have to wire all connections yourself

on top of that its poorly made as well...you cant adjust the lights without taking them right off the car...and the caps that cover the bulbs are just a rubber condom style thing rather than a secure hard plastic twist on cap

HIDS DO NOT FIT!

you need to file down the headlight bulb housing!

they are seriously a joke of a product

spyder themselves ripped a bunch of us off by offing them to us for cheap and everyone was pissed off

EAGLE EYES are where its at:

eagle eyes are GOOD in every aspect of a headlight

HALOS for one are bright - 4x brighter than spyders. they look A LOT better.

they dont have that random ass clear tube at the top that serves no purpose or function

you dont need to solder or make and connections yourself

have nice cut off line

can be adjusted like a regular headlight with the screw pointing up when u pop the hood

hard plastic back caps for more secure cap...and better to install hids in them - like stock





need i go on?

Ive owned both. i had spyders in...took way too long to do all the work...drove home and couldnt see shit..took them out that same night and put stocks back in...and ordered eagle eyes a week later.

spyders are WORSE than stock

eagle eyes are BETTER than stock

unless your plan is to just cheap out and never drive at night and dont care about doing all the work...and dont care about tacky looks - dull halos that you cant see during day...among other issues...and just want a black housing...i guess...go for it


if your at all concerned about ANYTHING related to quality, performance, safety...or ANYTHING...stick with stock or get eagle eyes.

anyone who endorses these headlights or suggests them should be banned for sending people down a shitty path and leading people on

Lol well my master mechanic bf has no problem with them all we did was switch out the light for a nokya 55 one and if u put hid in your dumb it says right on the housing not to so of course you had issues moron. I have no light output problem no black spot problem. Maybe you just don't know what your doing? There is no reason for you to put down other people that do like them. That ur own opinion on them but to get on here and say that my or other peoples opinions are crap is ridiculous.

While I agree with Dav3, he could've written that better and shorter. HID's are allowed on the Spyders and didn't not relate to his problems. I could go into a post similar to Dav3's, but it's best to basically say that the Eagle Eyes are better than the Spyders.

In your opinion which was my whole point in posting, I haven't had one problem with them and I have already seen an entire thread about the LEDs in the eagle eyes completley breaking in half??? And when I recieved my spyders over a year ago the back housing had a sticker that said Do Not Use With Hids Installed. Hence why I used artic white 55 nokya bulbs on mine.

then you are literally the ONLY person that has not had issues with them.

EVERYONE had issues with the spyder headlights from the group buy ( direct from spyder )....some just dealt with them saying they dont drive during night and so on.

its like comparing a beater rust bucket to a car thats new.



Go take some pictures of your light output on the road and against a wall at night and back this up because apparently you have some golden set of spyders and this now ups their defect rate from 100% to 99.999%


Again, literally EVERYONE has had issues that i mentioned above and you are the 1st person EVER claiming to not have issues.

the issues happen with stock bulbs the spyders come with, other halogen bulbs, and hids.

in fact people found the only way to make the headlights even somewhat safe was to use spacers on hids because nothing else is bright enough.

and spyder themselves said hids are fine in the headlights, and even offered a kit for them to come with hids.

so back to some proof! go snap some pics tonight

And again u don't think when we installed them we didn't line them up on a wall?! And I did switch out the lights for the nokyas for a reason I agree with you on the original light output but any other issues I haven't experienced and they have been installed for over a year on my g6 and my car is not garaged and hasn't been. It has sat outside in the snow and rain all year now. My bf wired them lined them up and I haven't had issues but like I said a master mechanic put mine on.

Really i'm bored fighting over this. Point in case is I personally have had not one issue while apparently others have. Sorry u had issues that Is your experience not mine. Just maybe next time u post u can speak from your own experience instead of saying other peoples opinions are crap and should be banned. I have pics on my gallery already so u can look at those. As for the original response to this thread I like my Spyders and I'm glad they have been great headlights for me and my car.

I like my Spydeee halos..

Here is some pix of them last night.. I've yet to change out the bulbs I dont really like the yellowish it puts off.. however.. these pix are just with the halo's on. (also have white eyelids, I'm not too sure I like, I used to have black thicker ones on the stock headlights until the jerk who hit my car and ran smashed my front end)---see pic

Those halos are too blue for my taste. I'm glad they work for you though. I hate eyelids, but some people like them so whatever.

The blue-ness could be the camera - on my first (failed) headlight set, the 8k HID's looked really blue in pictures but in real life only had a very slight tint.





This is the one pic I got that accurately represented the color:
