You know what, kudos for doing this. I'm glad you're loving your LED beams. Because in some way, I really wish this vehicle we got didn't come with LED headlights from the factory.
Because they're truly **** if you're used to HIDs.
Yeah, yeah - negative Nancy I am. But I find it hard comparing even the factory 4000Ks from, say, an Outlander or Sport (or the Evos for that matter) to this one.
LEDs tend to have decent beam projection up to a very limited distance, but very weak throw beyond what's immediately in front of you. If I'm looking for my headlights to illuminate and define what's beyond 25 meters, that detail is completely lost due to beam dispersion. Even putting high beams on tells me there are vehicles at a distance - but god forbid there's a car parked on the shoulder... or an animal, or whatnot.
And what sucks with this particular headlight is that you can't replace the bulbs. At least, I don't think you can
I'm really glad you like yours. I wish I could replace what's in ours.
Yeah, they’re definitely not as bright as HIDs! They make conversion kits to HID but they’re pricey. I replaced the fog lights and they’re super bright, which, I guess makeup for the lower headlight output.
So, I have had my 2018 Eclipse SE for 1 month now, 1800 miles on it. I drive almost 100 miles a day. 45 miles one way to work, thru Chicago suburbs, not on the express way, a LOT of stop and go traffic. A few days ago on the way home I was able to average 31.0mpg
My hobbies are outdoor pursuits , mountain biking - hiking etc.
So I'm constantly loading stuff into the boot and was worried about scratches on the rear load lip.
So , I applied a strip of ppf ( 3m Ventureshield )
It's a paint protection film of decent quality. It's clear , so it's not seen...
Gave both our cars a wash yesterday.
The roads are quite dirty just now, as we are having fairly heavy frosts overnight and the local Councils are Gritting the roads with a mixture of and Fine Grit, Sand and Salt, in the early hours of the morning, trying to prevent Ice forming on the road...
