    LED Headlights

    Anyone replace the weak ugly halogen headlight bulbs with some aftermarket LED? If so what brand and was there a noticeable difference? I am looking to do this but just curious if someone else already has. So far I have put in LED plate lights, reverse lights. Love the results. Brighter whiter light.

    I would suggest HID's over LED's.

    LED's messed with my IPM and made random things happen (wipers go off etc).

    I put them in my drls (high beams), and have tried them in my wife's headlights. They are great, though my OEM HIDs are MUCH better. Look for something called lumileds, as they have a very close beam pattern and don't blind other drivers (I know for a fact because I was the other driver)

    Please don't be one of those guys. Anyone running LED or HID bulbs in their OEM halogen housings are blinding everyone else on the road. They also are absolutely not an upgrade to halogens.

    FYI Lumileds is just a LED diode manufacturer. They don't make complete plug n play bulbs. Using their diodes absolutely won't prevent glare.

    Yep!! I call them "laser beam headlights" and every time one is coming up behind me at night I wish I had a big popup MIRROR to reflect all that light right back into their OWN EYES!!

    Burn out THEIR retinas!!! Self centered B A STARDS! :-(

    Not going to argue, but I felt that the ones I had in were less glaring than OEM ones from Nissan and Acuras. THOSE are blinding!

    I recently had the chance to follow a friend (who was driving a new rental Caravan) in our Caravan on some very dark country roads. I was going to lead (because of the HIDs in our van) but he pulled out of the driveway faster.

    I was absolutely amazed at how much better (both farther ahead and width) the HIDs in our van worked over the stock halogens in the van he was driving. (I knew mine were better, but it's one of those things, where it's not until you really see it with your own eyes that you believe it) Even with me staying several van lengths behind, I was still lighting up parts of the road for him.

    If you are willing to spend the time and money to do a bi-xenon retrofit then there is nothing better. As long as they are aimed right they can actually be significantly better than the stock T&C HID headlights.


    I actually don't think the stock Caravan / T&C headlights are all that bad for halogen, as long as they are aimed right.

    Hids are horrible, love it when people buy $20 hid kits and then wonder why they keep burning out. Aside from the fact you are blinding other drivers coming at you. But who cares as long as you can see good, right?
