Lightbulb Headlight update with LED or HID

So, going angry of changing high power halogens every several months, I am thinking about some updates, what you think guys? - maybe some one know some good LED's, without any problems, heat , and good cut off, or maybe HID will be way to go, share you experience.

I have cob Leds in my car and they are amazing, super bright and unlike hids they don't need to heat up for colour so you can use them as your full beams also.

Which type of LED ? i did digging. There are several Chinese companies which produces more normal LED's, CN360LED - LED auto lamp suppliers around the world.LED headlight,High power light,SMD car light 360 INTERNATIONAL GROUP LTD as you see it has many generations.
The most popular are 7gen.
regardless of the language, he shows how it works in reflector. And it's not good.....
The best LED I've found is BT-AUTO Lighting the problem is that they are wholesalers, min order is 10 sets and there is no resellers, retailers
they are ideal replacement of hologen. Whay is so , X-tremeVision LED Fog Lamp 78719719 | Philips thay perfectly copied philips design, and its working.
There are very few tests on youtube

These are the ones JP sells.

They are not the cheap ones found on chinas ebay, the min order is 1.
You also cant compare glare just cause they look similar or because you saw one cars headlight make it glare.

You need to compare the same product on the same car as each cars headlights are designed differently internally.

Oh yes, they probably charms, miraculous way will not glare, he made them and China copied from him . https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1set...5-2db8fd866695

are you joking ? Purchases from China and lying magical quality then resale, do you believe it ? The funny business is buy, sell for the double price.

Would like to go LED too but not sure about the beam pattern in the stock housing. I think I'll wait until I see a forum user's experience with a set first

No offense but that is not a proper cut off

That is a big hot spot with a bad cut off and you will fail a MOT with it.

This a good cut off(RHD car)(LHD will be the same but mirrored) with halogen bulbs.
The camera only makes it look white due to the auto white balancing.

If you compare both beam patterns

Yours is an oval hotspot with bleeding on the sides and kick up going to the left and right.
Stock is a flat line with a 20 kick up which will point to the passenger side.
Skomaz and Alexvance like this.

Of course with halogen bulbs will be better cut off, that i was trying to told you ages ago. When there was a discussion about HID. Hologen has <1500lumen, this led 3150lumen. Need to readjust right headlights led lamp holder. Left is ok.

Did the H1 cover close normally? For the H7 there is space but I thought that the H1 cover was way too small for the LED.

Just fitted Mr JPs H7 LED kit, easy enough to fit, takes a bit of fiddling to get the drivers in and the headlight cap back on.
First impressions are very good. I had 5000k after market HIDs installed but the LED kit is whiter and so much brighter in comparison.
Waiting on full darkness to see what they're like on the road.

Big thanks to MrJP and Aurora Bulbs

I was betting money that it wouldn't. Thank god I didn't :P

I am thinking of ordering another H1 OPT7 Fluxbeam set for the main beams but I think I'm gonna wait for the H7 to arrive first.

LEDs are a very expensive sport. I 've change all internal lighting / side lights / tail lights exept turn indicators with Philips LEDs. All Philips + OPT7 H7 = ~300

Not had a chance to see what they're like on the road yet.

2 reasons;
1. Had to work in Wales at short notice
2. My wife drives my Civic now

Still don't know how to add a pic in a post anyway
