How do you pick a LED headlights Sign In

There likely 10,000 different lights out there with prices from $10 - $200 many with specs close to each other, so how do you find the right one? I getting up in age and need to light up the road the best I can but don't want to blind oncoming cars, I know they need to be aim right but with that correct then what? also are the high dollar lights over $100 really better then a $50 light?

Those $100 bulbs are part of an Zenon HID system but only one part. They work with a ballast and control module.

I suggest using only "Plug in and play" bulbs and not alter things. Assorted cars/trucks are monitoring which bulbs are out so AYOR with this be able to go back to have light at all.

Spent a pandemic changing bulbs bought 10 at a time, interior, overhead, OE things that are NOT monitored.

Just a warning I've run into already - 3 vehicles involved 4th ongoing old to only newer.

AT LEAST 10% OF THE BULBS FAILED! Glad I bought lots, cheaper by box full lots high failure rates is disappointing and so glad I didn't alter a thing and could go back.

Watch out with this junk, Tom
