in my opinion, led headlights are like turning on the darkness.

i like hid headlights that have a solenoid operated shield that changes the focal point for high and low beams. i use them in the c code glass european headlight capsules for mk2/3 swifts.

they work fine in mk4/5 geo headlight capsules as well as long as they are adjusted properly.

there's an urban legend sort of thing that disputes their use in non-projector lenses but i use the hid plasma bulbs in my red twincam vert and they work great. i never had better headlights on a metro. :wink:

I tried ''putco'' brand led headlamp bulbs in 4of the work trucks-one the beam spread was wrong, 2 had failures within 6 months (or less) one set still working fine. DAMN BRIGHT, GREAT DISTANCE, PRICEY $$$$
went back to the seller for warranty, he exchanged them for hid kits- told me that he had too many comebacks (failures) of the putco led bulbs.

maybe they are better now :huh: those failures were a year ago.....hids still working fine.
