AZN'S NEW LED REVIEW THREAD

Well guys guess what i got in today



Took me a few minutes to slip them in



This is obviously during the day, and the pic was taken from the iphone4

but it looks pretty good in real life. White and matches my 5000k HID fogs.



i remember there being some discussion, i dont remember exactly which was better. but you can clearly see Both bulbs.

hope this helps and every who ordered a pair post your pics, reviews, and comments here !

Glad to see they got to you alright. Keep an eye on them and keep reporting any issues that might come up.

interesting how in the first picture, you cant see the individual bulb output but you can in the second. I remember mike saying these were better at providing a uniform light source than previous LEDs

Pics are funny like that at capturing light. It does a better job at hiding the two distinct lighting source vs the iJDMToy one I had, but from certain angles and up close, you can see where the lights are on mine. Further out you get, it gets closer to single light. Also, orientation of the LED once plugged in would play a part....if you can get the sides where the leds are pointing inwards (side to side) instead of upwards (up and down), this made a slight difference from just fooling around with it. Of course, everyone perceives light and color differently with their eyes, so maybe was just me staring too much at the bright lights lol.

Best design would be a rectangular box shape I suppose with enough side diodes to illuminate that gap portion while not have issues with 360 degree twisting angle. Also having less front pointing diodes to mask the position of where the specific LED actually is...however this has the negative effect of not producing enough forward facing lumens to counteract the natural bluish tint on the eyebrow lens, tainting the white color output.

Got mine in tonight. This is the first time I have touched anything under the hood besides cleaning with a towel.

So...it took me 45 minutes. lol. The first headlight took me 30 because I couldnt pull out the light in one of them for the longest time. my fingers hurt But im proud of myself, haha

anywhoo, here are some iphone4 pics of the LEDs with the oem xenons

think it might take a little longer to get to you. Your country had the post office lady scratching her head lol. She was like, "Sir, you're supposed to put the destination country last" and I was like, it's there! She wouldn't believe me.

Haha I know Mike. I've come across lots of people who don't know where Brunei is. Some of them even think its located in the Middle East. Well hopefully it would arrive earlier than expected. My O-nex kit was shipped on the 22nd of June and it hasn't arrived yet. Sigh..

Here are some pics I took comparing the whites with the blues. White on the left, blue on the right. I'm running 8000K HIDs also. Will need to swap out the sidemarkers tomorrow.
