    I’ve been seeing a lot more cars on the road in my area lately with LED bulbs and in my opinion they seem a lot better than the halogen light bulbs. Your article has really opened my eyes to the benefits of LED headlights in cars, but like you said, I need to do my due diligence and read reviews as I don’t want to get any crappy ones. What’s your personal experience with LED bulbs for vehicles?

      my personal experience wasn’t that great the first time I bought a led headlight kit I bought the first kit I saw on the internet I watched the advertisement and the looked pretty good but I got ripped off on those ones I didn’t watched the review at all. But on the other hand I know people who bought some from amazon and are very satisfied with them but the things is i’m very picky of some stuff so something that didn’t work for me can work for other. Besides if i would have read and watched more reviews I would have known but maybe one day i’ll find something that suits me

    I can certainly see the benefits of fitting these automotive LED bulbs to your car – from a safety point of view more than anything else. If these newer types of bulbs really do give off more glare and eliminate night driving vision fatigue then they are probably well worth the money. 

    On the subject of money – do they cost a lot more than the traditional version of car lights?

      compared to regular incandescent bulbs yes they are more expensive you can find cheap ones that will do a great job and other that are complete junk that is the only downside of the led bulbs it’s hard to pick a good one the only way to know if they are good or not is to look for video reviews on the bulbs you are looking for to give you a better idea of how they perform. If you want better lighting than incandescent there is always the HID’s they do a really good job too if you have projector headlights

    These might be ideal for me, I avoid a lot of night driving because of the strain on my eyes. Once my eyes feel strain I become very tired. It has been an ongoing issue for me. I drive a big Dodge Ram truck, which sits higher, what lumens would you recommend so I don’t blind oncoming traffic? I find some headlights coming towards me really harsh and would not want to do that to other drivers.

    You mention centre focus point, which I understand why, but I like to have good visual on the shoulder of the road. Does  the focus of the beam go wide or narrow? And when using you high beams, how much brighter is the LED, or is it just a change of the position of the beam?

      as far as the focus point i mentioned it because some led bulbs doesn’t have a good focus point and sends light in every direction which is not good. Watching reviews is a good way to know which one has a good focus point. As far as lumens i would say between 4000-6000 lumens per bulbs is good if you see kits advertising 20000-30000 lumens they are most likely to send light in every direction thus not illuminate the road properly and blind other drivers. And for the high beams if you have one bulb doing the low and high beam it works pretty much the same as the incandescent 2 filament at different positions to switch the focal point if you have one bulb for low beam and one for the high beam the difference is you car’s reflector but the intensity is not likely to be more than the low beam it only focus a different way. If you have 2 bulbs I suggest you keep the incandescent high beam since it is most likely to output the light further than the led. I hope that helped you a little.
