    Why not get HIDs? I hear they are even brighter than LED.

    I'll see how this will compare w/ my present P6 when I get hold of it.

    That's to be expected.. I chose a seller who has the filter for the low beam where it is needed most.

    I can't stand led lights. They are a dangerous distraction to drivers. Audi can **** off with their rear blinkers also. They are seizure inducing

    I want to like LED headlights - I really do. The two things holding me back are the glare from the bright white color and longevity (I've heard stories here of LED bulbs getting replaced within a year of install.) That and cost (okay three things.)

    When they meet halogen bulb performance, reliability and price then I'm in.

    Speaking of which, what big name manufacturers are making LED bulbs? I'm talking Philips, Sylvania, and the like.
    Oh, I found some Philips LED H4s - for $150/pr.


    I got some fantastic LED flashlights (torches...) that I like.

    How do you get the reflector part out of the headlight housing? Just hack away with something fairly sharp and precise?

    What I do understand is that the low beam LED has its own reflector lens and is independent from the stock reflector. If you notice, the assembly is much longer than the stock halogen bulb and so the beam focus is outside the stock reflector focus area. It is the high beam LED that uses the stock reflector.



    Saw this at Youtube
