    You only left 12 minutes before asking if anyone knew a way around it

    It's been covered alot before and the answer is to put a coat of white paint on the tips of the LED's. Mine ended up having 4 coats to get rid of the bright spots

    stand back 6 ft take off the main headlamps and they look cool imo, but the spots are more noticable with the 2nd turn of the knob on - even painting the end wont eliminate it, and even normal bulbs give out the hot spot

    i rekon they look tacky with the white spots so i disconected them tonight, the original bulbs didnt leave dots in the halo so i will probably put those back in, what a waste of 20 quid

    I think I know the problem... you sound like you have uncapped LEDs. You can buy capped LEDs like I had in my Bora angel eyes and they looked just like a BMW.

    Have a look on eBay at ones like this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/White-LED-Side...QQcmdZViewItem

    Mine are done as I said in the first post I made in this thread. They are the same LED's as your to from the same place

    I won't lie and say mine have no bright spots but they are no worse than the standard bulbs
