Seen @Ebstang LED headlights in one of his posts, and loved them right away.

As they were something like 80 a pair, I thought it was worth a try as my originals could use an upgrade.

I was expecting some plastic casing and not really high quality. The reverse was true, all aluminium and a very nice finish.

I haven't tried them yet on the road, just at nite on my driveway, the light they give is totally different.

Much brighter and clear. I don't really need to wait to try them to know that they are giving a much better lighting than the old ones did.

Its obvious, just like with all the bulbs I've replaced with LEDs.

Mine (and Ebstang's) are different, but can't find them back.

These look similar.

I purchased them in August 2017 on Amazon.  I installed them right away and posted on this forum regarding them. I have therefore had use of them for almost a year and a half. No problems with them at all unless you dislike everyone asking you where you got your badass headlights!  Their performance is truely unbelievably different than stock. It makes traffic signs seem as though thy are actually lit. Adjusting up/down/right/left is very simple...Google it. If your current headlights are adjusted correctly then you don't need to adjust for these. It's funny to me how many guys won't upgrade their headlights due to lack of confidence in what they think the adjusting process will be. You won't blind opposing drivers in the low beam setting as these quality headlights have a very clear beam delineation pattern defining the horizon line...very cool!

They are still available on Amazon and are now only $59.99 for one. ($120. for a pair) They fit PERFECTLY with no modifications to your headlight buckets.

The Led turnsignal bulbs in the picture have switchback technology which allows them to shine white, like the headlight halos while in the first headlight switch position. When you turn on your turn signals the bulbs in the grille as well as the halos blink amber. It is much more noticeable when the signal lights and headlight halos blink back and forth white-to-amber. They are around $13.00 on Ebay for a pair and install easily with no resistors necessary. I have purchased from Yitamotor numerous times with no issues.

FYI- the only incandescents I still have are the (4) 1157 tail/turn lights at the rear, the (2) turn signal indicators in the dash. All other bulbs have been converted to LED with no wiring modifications other than (2) plug electronic flashers.
