    LED’s and ellipsoids

    Can anyone recommend a combo of (no fan) LED’s low beams and the necessary gizmo for non smiley ellipsoids?

    I am taking my lamps apart and cleaning the reflectors.
    Prolly polishing the lens faces too. Slightly pitted.

    Lighting output with new halogen bulbs is dismal. Ground has .2 ohm resistance.

    Thanks.

    Despite their reputation, LED bulb assemblies do not last that long. This is why they come with a huge heatsink on them, they generate and dissipate too much heat which can limit their potential for extended life. HID bulb systems are much more robust, reliable and brighter and probably cheaper too. I recommend going with nothing other than a 55W HID system.

      PIAA makes nice lights. The rear covers won't fit, of course.

      I believe halogen 100W lights will produce better output if the wiring allows them.

        Thanks very much for your comments. I will investigate both options.
