They are not that bad for everyone because we all live in different areas. Living in the NE with lots of snow, rain, old roads, poor lines can really take an okay headlight pattern and turn it to garbage especially with other cars with 3x as bright head lights.

LED's are not where they need to be yet which is why i did the H9 conversion first before trying LED's. H9's work perfectly, i can now see in the rain and i can see whats left of the lines in the road. NY/CT sucks.....

But its good to see company's putting time and work into a good LED.

I used these:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Had them in since September with no issues. Fitment was perfect. I find them to be much brighter than stock, with the same pattern and cutoff. Haven't been flashed yet.

This x 100. You can get quality HID kits for cheap now and they still outperform LEDs. There a reason OEM LED equipped cars have multiple LED emitters, usually at least 4 per side. Drop in HIDs, see better and be happier.

Also, the ďinstant onĒ pitch around LED bulbs is laughable since warm up on HIDs is just seconds.

I think there are good $20 ledís that I can replace 6 times over and be way better ahead than spending that much on those !! Lots of bad reviews on the morimoto and lots of people having issues with them. Keep your 30 day guarantee. Iíll use my best tommy boy ,

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for now, for your customer's sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality product from me.

The instant on bit is more an issue for high beams, as you switch them on and off while driving. The low beams only have to turn on and warm up once, so complete non-issue for that application. LED's would work fine for high beams, as you're not worried about blinding oncoming traffic with them, you'd expect it, lol. I'm running the 9011 HIR bulbs for high beams, and I've been plenty happy with them, and they're cheap. Spent the money on the low beams and LED fog's instead.

I actually use really nice LEDs for high beams now. I agree with the warmup issue on high beams. I find, even in the high beam application, they are bright but donít have good reach. They act more like a flood with short reach and certainly donít even match halogen performance at least in that application.
