White LED strip found on LCI headlights...Where can I get it?

I'll be retrofitting HID's sometime soon or this spring and I found xB LED halo's that would look great, but now I am having trouble finding the white LED strip that goes on the White brow of my car. Can anyone point me in the right direction?



The LED strip found in the white brow as shown above.

IF you want the LCI look... you will have to buy the LCI headlights. I have not seen anyone install an add on LED tube to pre LCI lights.

I have the LCI headlights but they are halogen hence the retrofit with projectors and HID. Halogen LCI headlights do not come with the LED strip.

like mad.

also, why bother going offshore when you can very easily pick these up in the states from multiple vendors--like 3 of which are active sponsors here.

Did you ever end up finding the white LED strip? I'd be interested to see where you can find those.

It's on the backburner, as I am doing some more research on other products. I have spent some time, and did find some strip but they look fake and chinese.

What i am wondering is if the plastic encased angel eyes are easily bendable, if so I can just bend it into a straight line and fit it into the strip.

Once i come up with a solution I can PM you along with post my headlight build thread so I can share the booty

Buying the lci headlights I believe would be worth the extra buck, to save yourself from the headaches of what you're trying to do

Good news everyone. I found the strip I was looking for.
Better news, it is not on the market yet.
Even better news, I have gathered all the sources I need and will be purchasing before spring arrives.
Best news, no one has ever made headlights like these before. And there is a high possibility it can be a new and easy modification that everyone can do with their LCI headlights.

Bad news, I can't order now but I am trying to get them as early as possible.
