halos...

Just got the weisslicht halo LED bulbs, and yes they are whiter, but not at all brighter. The inside smaller ring is pretty bright, but the outside larger ring can hardly be seen. Any pointers on how to brighten that outside ring? Im almost to the point of putting and HID bulb in there, but somehow i'm not sure that will work much better...anyone else having this problem, and know how to make it better?

mine are like that too, you can adjust them to point in different directions but i haven't even bothered since they should come pre adjusted for our car.

You can adjust them to a degree by rotating the bulb however they should come preadjusted for you. The problem is with the factory housing which is designed to have the inner halo brighter than the outer halo. The outer halo is just a reflection of the inner halo so naturally less light will get to it.
