Low quality cable plugs don’t fit well
Canbus adapter needs to be ziptied so it doesn’t bounce around
Beam has lots of dead spots
Shoots light where it shouldn’t
**DRL is way to bright to actually use. It looks like you are driving around in the daylight with your high beams on like an idiot. Many people flashing you and unhappy.
While the DRL does work, it just dims the lights by about 30%, and since they are about 300% brighter than regular bulbs anyway, its like you have really bright high beams on in the day. Not cool.

Not to get political on a deal forum, But that statement is true. You're an a**hole if you put LEDs in your halogen housings.

Looks like they raised the price for the coupon.

I've purchased 2 of these kits before (HB4). First one was $40 April 2017, second was $27 open box May 2019.

Customer service was great as they offered a replacement out of warranty.

Before the flaming, I have projector housing.

This is true.
What I don't know is how are these in a halogen projector?
Is the light more controlled?

The beam pattern of these is usually garbage because LED throw patterns are vastly different then the halogen housing is designed to focus and collimate. So you might have 3x the lumens but no improvement in vision. Also the throw distance may not change at all because the housing was designed for a specific distance of throw, or it may increase or decrease. Increase can be worse because too much light might go very far ahead where you don't need it as much while not enough gets to where you need to see or too much which ends up washing things out.
This can lead to poor lightning, blinding other people (badly) and weird light distribution, hot spots and dark spots.

Hence none of these are DOT certified, even the expensive Philips LEDs are not certified. And certification is not hard or expensive, but no one can make the beam pattern work properly.
That said its not impossible to have LED retrofit lights, all that needs doing is replacement headlight housings that focus and collimate to a specific LED bulb's characteristics (the assembly is technically removable). But the easy money is in selling junk.

This is bs. I installed one of these before and did an aim test as the car service manual said. See no problem with height cut off. Those who say led can't be used to retrofit in halogen lighting doesn't know what they are talking about. Those who blinds you are pickup drivers with headlight higher than your sitting position.

Fyi: led is not as bright as halogen. Should use hid instead.

It is a bit more complicated than just projectors or not. There are some cars with factory HIDs in reflector housings. There are actually reflector housings for HID's but nothing really exists for these LED kits as far as I know.

TLDR: This will blind everyone, even if people don't flash you.

Guys. I just had a set of hikari 9000Lm led headlights, in general LED looks nice up close but they're garbage. Not really bright enough at night... At least not for me.

Go HID instead and use the proper setup.

See the glare compared to the regular halogen bulb?
You're telling me that's okay???

9000 lumens should be immensely brighter then halogen which are typically 700-1100 lumen each (high brightness halogen can be brighter but lifetime measuring in months).
They are obviously lying about the brightness.

Vegeta is very disappointed

I have a pair of similar bulbs for my motorcycle and they work fantastic. Everyone sees me. No one complains or flashes me. Cars never cut infront of me either.

Bikes gets a passed.
When I was riding, we always turned on the highbeams at night.

How does anyone know if it was aimed properly? They may have exaggerated it for all we know
