Doesn't take that long to install them for a quick demo Unless you remove your wheels.

Bump...

Any news? Are the bulbs worth the price?

Received mine yesterday and did an electrical test on them to make sure they work. I have to say they are REALLY bright. I got the 6k and find they are pretty much white and didn't notice any hint of blue like some LEDs are. Wish they did so it'd match my 6k HIDs a bit but we'll see when I get a chance to I install them.

I can't wait to see the results. Take a picture with only half the lights replaced for comparison.

Did you ever get these installed? If so, how do they look? Pictures please...

Haven't had a chance to install them yet as it's pretty damn cold here in Canada

I will have pix and a vids (night and day) once I do for comparison.

Just an update. Thought I would do a search and see how people liked these lights since it's been a few months out. Instead I read people having issues and stuff and find out v-leds is coming out with another version with waterproof automotive connectors, thicker gauge wiring, and a smaller/better control module which you do not need load resistors.

I emailed them and they said to send back the whole kit and they would replace it with the new ones.

Sent it on Thursday so let's see how long ths takes.

So I sent back the original kit back on march 28 and got a shipping confirmation yesterday. *So hopefully I'll get the new versions early next week.

they should make an actual bulb adapter instead of making a universal one. hopefully you wont end up with water in your headlights. which im sure you will. the lights themselves are bright as fuck though.

Thanks for the info Brandon.

If that's the case I may add some silicone to the back and seal it up.

Are the lights so bright that you would need to hook up that one wire to dim the light when the mains are on?
