Default Re: LED Headlights



Actually the lights on the left are my factory original 02 PT Cruiser and are not aimed appropriately. The car has a major 'rake' to it and thus the lights are aimed down quite a bit and I've never taken the time to readjust them.

The lights on the right are the LED's on my PT Convertible with new housings and appropriately aimed.

Guess we all have our opinions on brightness and aiming.

Not as focused as i would of liked. You can see the hot spots on the Halogens, don't get those with the LED, and the cutoff is fuzzier. This just put doubt into my plans.... gonna have to make some projector lenses.

How about a pic..??

Sorry, everyone. Been kind of busy with lots of things lately. I'll try and get a pic up soon showing the low-beam focus.

So far, driving with them for a month or so, I can tell you there is no going back to halogens for me. I am very pleased so far and can't find any issues with the beam or the output at all. Only question left for me is longevity.

Since my fence is redwood, not sure how it will look in a photo, I might have to find me a wall somewhere to do it properly. Give me a day or two to do this. Just a matter of finding some time to do it LOL

Here is my low-beam on a nearby wall (~15 ft away).


Sorry but for some reason my high-beams are not working now. Have to get on that soon I guess. Anyways no comparison photo for now though.

The low-beam is bright enough for me and I don't appear to bother any other drivers with the brightness judging by the lack of any feedback while I'm driving at night. Again, I'm not going back to halogen.
