Edit*- x2 what Rage says below about blinding people. I've never used the brand you bought, but our Rigid Industries lights on the Fj are insanely bright and that's only with 2 10's singles.

OP,I'm sure the LEDs you installed do a great job of lighting up the road for you.
Too bad they can also blind oncoming traffic & make them crash into you.
I was recently following a guy who decided to mount 2 LED strips on this trunk.I could barely see the road.

I'm not try to rain on the OPs parade necessarily, I'm sure it looks great when sitting there, but I can't sit by and say nothing when he's liable to cause an accident with that setup.
There are some luxury cars emerging on the market that have true LED headlights (I believe the Hyundai Aquus is one), and they're pretty awesome, but this isn't that, and adding massive scattered light to the front of your car is great if you're offroad or on a rally stage, not so much when oncoming traffic can't see where they're going.
OP, please, please, please consider this. This is why I'm asking for a beam cutoff picture. I want to give you a sense of what it's like for other traffic. These cheap HID and LED kits are popular in my area, and it's like looking into the sun, even if they're several lanes over in oncoming traffic. Please don't sacrifice your's and other's safety for aesthetics.
Alright I am going to put this thread to bed......
First of all what the hell does OP stand for?
ALL MBZ, BMW, AUDI, LEXUS and Porsche come with DRL ( Daytime Runing Lights ) which are LEDS. They also come High Intensity bulbs in there headlights. So I am really not doing anything different, my HIDS put out the perfect amount of light and it is not blinding for anyone other wise they would not allow them to be on factory cars or sell the kits aftermarket. As far as my LEDS are no brighter then any other DRL LEDS that come factory.
HIDs that come factory have a HID projector in the lens that is designed to work with HIDs.
The OEM halogen housings that come with the base & premium 2011/2012s are not designed for HIDs.
WOW...........That is an interesting video thank you for sharing.
This thread will LIVE! Better yet one of these nights my-wrx park your car with your headlights on and get out and look at the front of your car. Hell get in another car and drive by yours and get an oncoming view to see if your lights do blind people. If it is within the law and the lights work and the LED's you have also work and don't blind and turn people to stone then cool. It's your car do what you want. Technically 90% of the mods we install are for off-road use only but they are still there and we still drive these vehicles illegally on the streets. Oh by the way whenever you post anything on these forums there will always be an "expert" that may . Potty Mouth .. Potty Mouth .. Potty Mouth .. Potty Mouth . you off or praise you or sometimes both. Could you post night pics of the LEDS please?
That is so true on every forum there is always an einstein....
And I was being sarcastic rage...... that video is soooo old and that guy is full of SH%$! All you have to do is adjust them and they are fine.
Why cant you just say cool install and leave it at that lets not make this forum a debate.
Cool install Bro.
A meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.
Prove it. Post the cut-off like I've asked, and that will end it. This is nothing personal. Your back-up camera was genuinely awesome, and your Pioneer stereo turned out great as well.That is so true on every forum there is always an einstein....
