I did some research in the past and basically found that they aren't really powerful enough to be a good headlight. If you were to try one go for something that has a lot of power, enough to require. Little metal heat sync on the bulb. Then it may be just barely bright enough.

Audi has recently started producing effective led headlights but for the good stuff it costs a bunch of money.

I found something like this, Which is a high output LED 5w, but it has a focused lens on the front, that wouldn't work because our headlights have a little cup over the bulb.


This seems more the way to go, 7.5w led bulbs with 360 high power LEDs, Looks promising, but they say for driving or fog lights, nowhere for headlights. I would imagine they look great and bright but are just not enough to light your way safetly as you drive.

Switching the headlights to LEDs is a big move. I have wired a number of LED's may different ways and just havent been able to produce enough light to where I think this is safe. Stick with HIDs as its just not a good idea to screw around with safety.

^ I ran those for a while between HID kits. They did the job quite well, but put side by side with HID and it's still clearly a halogen bulbs ha.

HIDs produce between 2,800 and 3,500 lumens with just a 35w ballast. While halogen bulbs produce between 700 and 2,100 lumens from between 40 and 72 watts.

So those LED headlights look good. They produce 1200 lumens and are better than lower quality halogen headlights, but they won't hold up against HIDs.

I'm sure its enough light to drive by though.
