This thing seems to be attached to my headlight via some glue.

I don't want to chip away at it for fear of chipping the lens, or cracking it.

What is the best way to remove this and the residue it will undoubtably leave behind?

goof off works good from what i've heard. Something that works really well on that tough sticker residue is to put peanut butter on it and let it sit over night. Then it scrapes right off the next day. Might as well try it since its readily available right now.

I agree with the thinner or you could use some reducer. Either....or but the reducer will be a little less aggressive on your hands. If either of these solvents leave a stain on your lens you can polish it with some rubbing compound or I find chrome and mag polish works great. If you have pitted lenses that are dull you can wet sand them with some 1500 grit and polish them with the mag polish. You could be lazy and use a polisher but you will more than likely ruin your pad. It is pretty much the same as color sanding your car for the mirror finish. Hope this helps man.

They're perfectly good lights other than the rice attached to them... i don't feel like spending $40-$50 for another set. :(

Those lights actually looked pretty cool when they were on the car. They put a blue glow in the housing when the headlights were off.

You should be able to just tap them with a screw driver and get them to come off. The glass should be smooth enough.

You like... epoxied them on or something buddy... i've tried with a screw driver, and gets me nowhere.

If my headlights are off... my lights are down... O.o

^I will get some tonite and see what i can do about it.

It's getting really aggravating driving around with my high beams on, just aimed low so i don't blind people.

The stalk moves too far away, it's not good for signaling. :(

I can't find them for cheaper than ~$20 per here. :(

Nothing's special about them. I'm just cheap and got these for cheap. :D

WTF!

I put the led's on there to put a blue glow on the back of the headlights. It was a neat mod, even you complemented me on it when I put them on. In fact you had them before me stuck under the hood of the q45 somewhere.

If you thought they were dumb, why did you put led's in your new headlights?

So why hate?

I bought actual h4 conversions with an led slot, and I have hyperwhite leds in there.

I had them under the hood for like a week, until I realized they looked ghey.

:hehe:

I love giving you shit
