Led/ super white headlamp bulbs 1.8 Cruze

Postby Premchand1976 » April 10th, 2017, 10:56 am

Not too impressed with the yellow lights ( fogs and headlamps ) so I'm considering super white or led bulbs. Anyone has them and can share how they project on when it's raining, wet roads and dry roads ( at night of course....Lol ). I heard some of the hid's/ white bulbs are horrible at nights on wet roads ????

LEDs are the best thing these days...The only issue is heat dissipation. So if ur headlamp similar to the np300 where the ballast is not covered u orn.

Don't waste money on the cheap/fanless type.

If you want the most usable light vs wha looking hard go with 4300k in the headlights. Driving/fog lights are supposed to be low intensity, once you installing hid/led there it's a style thing

Leds offer better cut offs ,hids gives more overall light output but there is light scattering in reflector housings.

In heavy rain I would've been blind with the leds IF I didn't have my hid fogs to back it up. (6000k led in headlights 5000k hids in fogs)

Do NOT buy led bulbs with COB chips for your headlight, it just doesn't perform as well. Look for ones that contains phillips led chips instead.

Your HIDs showed in rain?

The factory HIDs on my last car (lancer) were basically useless in rain and the halogen fogs were what shone through.

The 5000k showed yea.

If I'm going back hids it's definitely going to be 4300-4500k

Yellow lights light up your way better than white lights. (your eyes see better)
White lights surely blind the oncoming driver.
My advice is to stick with the original lights the car came with.
The wiring was intended to handle that current too.
Peace.
