well the verdict is in. the HID rocks and the LED replacement bulb is a waste. you cant even tell you flip the brites on. the SoCal HID and the daymaker aux lights light up the night. time to go pick up a silverstar to throw in the high beam.
Agreed if doing the single bulb headlight. But im running the dual bulb light and have the SoCal HID low beam kit in. Was looking for a comparative bulb that wasnt flooded out by the HID.I looked around online and found that PIAA bulb for the cost of around $50.00 +/-.
What I have learned about "high intensity" automotive bulbs is their life expectancy is usually much shorter than a regular bulb. So if that is true than...
Comparing the cost of that PIAA bulb to my Truck-Lite Phase 7 LED headlight which cost me around $170.00, I think the LED is a better overall purchase in the long run, unless of course, the PIAA light output is superior to the LED. After three of those PIAA bulbs burn out, you would have paid almost the same for what the Truck-Lite costs and the LED will keep on going and going. Just my $.02.
