Default Big shouts out to Caesar and crew at lightwerkz!!! Video link attached

So it's been about 2 months since I had my headlights retrofitted by lightwerkz and it's been well worth it. The performance of the useable light output on the road is amazing. Key word is usable.

I live in Connecticut and lightwerkz is based in New Jersey. I left home around 3am so that I could get to the shop around 7am. Through communication with Caesar there was a possibility that the job could take all day. Immediately as I got on the road i was reminded why I'm heading to lightwerkz. The OEM projectors even with osram CBI bulbs seemed to not put out enough light on the road for my high standards haha.

I finally got to lightwerkz around 6am. Caesar pulled up in a beautiful blue BMW X6. We got to talking for a bit about the e46 M3. I could tell he really misses his former e46 M3. Personally I can see Caesar picking one up again just based from the memories that my car were bringing back for him. He had a couple door sill panels he got for his m3 that he no longer needed and gave to me for free. A few hrs later after the crew worked their magic...my headlights were ready. I went with the morimoto mini D2S 4.0 projectors.


Edit: night video I forgot I had

I've been so happy with the quality of the work. The flicker is just so cool. My headlights are now properly aimed. I don't mind driving at night. My driving habits have been a little poor of late because I find myself looking for the sharp cutoff constantly lol. With such a sharp cutoff you can sometimes see the self leveling feature of the headlights working. I recommend this mod if you are not happy with your stock headlights.

Any videos or pictures at night outside? Nice to see when some CT owners posts as well.

Sorry, no night time videos/pictures yet. I'll try this weekend if the weather holds up

I read your thread actually and a few other recent lighting threads so I figured let me go ahead and write a quick small review about the retrofit. You are gonna be happy once it's done.

Lightwerkz is most definitely in NJ. Sorry, I was thinking about my trip to TTFS most likely.

I've tried setting up meets last summer with minimal success.

No problem, let me know when and I'll try and make it. I'm usually in the Hartford area.

I believe there is a meet in Manchester every Wednesday across the street from the Honda dealership.
