Default Cree led headlights, seen them, love them and I wanna try them

So I'd like to know if any one has any experience
with these Cree Led headlights. I know a few people
who have put them in to replace their hids. And they
are quite impressive. Beautiful color and very intense .
They are very happy with the switch. I just haven't seen
any in a maxima, to see them before I take the leap.
Any thoughts?

This is very similar to the look of the set my
friend just put in his Mercedes.

I would not go near that. Not for main headlight. an OEM bulb as high beam if you have bi xenon lows maybe.

Yes I already have Cree 6000k fogs. And they are much brighter than hids.
My my friend took his hids out of his Benz. And put these in. They look amazing.

I put Cree LED in my cornering light (2008). It REALLY projects the corners when I flip them on! Love it

Default Re: Cree led headlights, seen them, love them and I wanna try them

The one thing that bugs me about the LED design is that the lightbulbs are sealed in with the plastic cover with rubber gasket, and there would be no air for the heatsink to cool.

Maybe someone would be brave enough to let the heatsinks vent by putting holes in the rear cover or something, but that'll risk dust and water getting inside the headlamp enclosure.

There are a few vendors selling them at Amazon now. The brightest ones are rated 6000lm ($130), people in the review say those might be too bright. Would love to see for myself. The 3200lm models are definitely cheaper at around $80, but again my concern is about getting these bulbs to stay cool.

if you want nice led lights go with the auxbeam LED bulbs, there on amazon.com. Great 6k white color and they have some range on em. I can see up the block with them on.

Not to offend anyone but i don't know what people see in these LED bulbs as headlights. None of them have any distance neither in a projector or a reflector housing. Saw an suv the other night and his halogen fog lights were shining farther that his pure white led headlights. That's not safe.

Default Re: Cree led headlights, seen them, love them and I wanna try them

I must say,I bought kensun led for mine and I absolutely love them. Way better then the halogens that it had. I do have better distance,decent area coverage as far left to right. I have 6k hid in my civic with retrofitted headlights. The leds aren't as bright as the hid for my situation it works for me. I live in a suburban area where almost everywhere you go is well lit or at least some sort of lighting,so I'm sure that helps my cause. Now,if you live in butt f**k Egypt where street lights are a luxury then I would go with hids. All depends on your environment. So I leave you with this self proclaimed expert but not really an expert opinion. If you have halogens,leds are an upgrade

Unless those LEDs are OEM and in a LED projector then the only upgrade they are over halogen is cosmetic.

Definitely not a cosmetic upgrade for me. I see better,road in front of me is brighter. But hey,what works for me,may not work for you. Everyone has a different prospective and everyone definitely has different eyes and what type of light works for them at night. I had halogens in my civic with a projector,switched to 6k hid and felt the halogens were better at night.

Maybe not for everyone but for me they light up the road bright and wide. That's just my opinion. Not here to fight with anyone over it.
