I did this mod to my gen 1 projectors. I cant remember where I ordered my rings from but they were blue ccfl. 90mm and 100mm? Had to have an inverter for each one. All i rember is getting so frustrated because they kept burning out. Customer service was great though had about 3 extra rings sent without hassle. Just make sure you buy protectors that go over them and watch out when your gluing them in. I had some super glue spill over the edge and f%#@ up my painted lights.

They "Burn out" (they actually break) if you dont install them properly since is kinda glass if they are loose or you drive over rocks really fast LOL the movement breaks a corner of them and they go off, but I have about 2 years now with my headlights and never have a problem with the halos however I had my fog lights with CCFL halo rings a well but since my bumper is not really attached lol is kinda loose it shakes so it broke the halos :( but I am not fixing them until I secure my bumper :D....but nah they are pretty legit.

you need to make sure you buy the "Converter" is a little black box with 4 cables, you wire them the same as the regular Halos but with this converter in the middle
