HID Look / Visibility at fraction of cost
I ordered these replacement bulbs as I have always been curious about changing my headlights out for quite some time. I wanted something I could easily install myself, and something that was not HID because personally I do not think HID's are what I want.
Since there were not really many other options, I first bought a pair of HALO Projector Headlights from AM, which looked great, but the low beams were way too dim and I could not see.
When I saw these bulbs I knew it was something I had to try so I ordered a pair. Installation takes no more than 15 minutes, just pop the old bulbs out, twist off the LED bulb's retainer and pull it off first. It should slip right off. Pop the retainer into your headlamp housing first, then screw the mounting piece on first before installing the bulb. Then it's as easy as plugging in a few things and you're ready to go.
These bulbs WOW'ed me on first use. They are so much brighter than I would have imagined, it's comparable to HID output, however at a fraction of the cost and much easier maintenance. I have not yet attempted to use these with the Halo Projector housing, but with OEM Style Smoked housings these bulbs have excellent night-time visibility. They produce a cool, white light, maybe a slight blue hue to some viewers, and are definitely an improvement over the yellowish light most halogen bulbs produce. They are also a direct replacement of your old bulb so the fit and finish should be spot on if you installed them properly.
My only issue is with the highbeams - With my specific vehicle, when I activate the highbeams they tend to stay on for a bit longer than they should, and the deactivate at different times, by a fraction of a second, but it is noticable that they flick back to lowbeam at a different time. This isn't a big deal, and is actually more likely to be vehicle specific as I have done many mods to my electrics, including mods to the headlight wiring, So this MAY NOT be a problem for you. 5 Stars across the board except 4 stars for Appearance for this minor highbeam flicker.
Strongly recommend this product if you do not want to go the HID Route but still want that HID look.
