    LEDS aren’t the way to go with projection lights. May work well enough on highs but not lows. I just ordered HIDs......

    I have HID's, some are just as happy with there LED's, you will get two different sides here.
    The only down side to my HID's is they will increase the static on weaker FM signals. But who listens to FM anymore.
    With those heat sinks sticking out they may not be as easy to get in there vs the fin type that XenonDepot sells. Which of course are more money.

    What I might end up doing is trying these LEDs for my headlights. If I don't like them, I'll throw them in my fogs

    Weird, were they cheapo brands? LEDs in my projector housing provide a very clean cut light. Haven't heard of light bleed from them. If you look at those post I linked, is there "light bleed" in those pics?

    I seen what you linked and I’m shocked how those didn’t bleed . Ones I got were $75 a set fan fin style . Can’t recall the name/s. Good thread though sorry I missed it but I’m happy for now with HID .

    No doubt your HIDs are good! I was just curious to why you were thinking LEDs are bad. I mean they do have their downsides as do HIDs but each work good, just user preference really.
