WHICH HEADLIGHT LEDs?

Post by DonnyBrook »



Changed the eng/trans and rear end oil. New timing belts and coolant too.
Next - Headlights...
I've been reading good things here about both of these:
https://www.cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl ... /83/302834
and
https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinf ... &year=1995

I'd appreciate your opinions and each.
Thanks!
Don

This probably wont help you but I think I went with the SoCal ones from Cyclemax. They are ok. :)

That headlight was designed and approved with Halogen bulbs. You can just put brighter 60/55W H-4s in place of the 45/45W bulbs and maintain the designed lighting patterns.

I meet enough LED stuff, and now our new car has them …. no like.
