    Scroll up a bit and you’ll see my lows and highs. They don’t look near as bright as yours

    Both of the pictures I just sent were low beams. I can tell you right now your drivers side light has the same problem that made them replace my early release set. One of your projectors is aimed poorly. You can send that photo in to TRS and they will likely replace them for you. They sent me a whole new set and they’ve been great.

    Here’s my highs. [​IMG]

    To compare to HID here’s my 55w HIDs in projector high beams. So I’d say the Morimoto XBs are about as good as a 35W HID kit in projectors. [​IMG]

    Here’s my Sentra LEDs. less intense output and not nearly as wide. The intensity of the light dims out not very far in front of the car while the Morimotos can reach much farther out. And it’s not due to poor aiming in the Sentra I tried to raise them up from the factory height and it did not help at all. [​IMG]

    I’ve had mine for a few weeks now and just noticed a problem. The switch for my lights works fine in park, but when I put it in drive my high beams come on. They come on with each setting except when I put my lights in the on position. I’m just now starting to research this and made it through about 15 pages on the forum and couldn’t take it anymore. There’s way too many posts about these lights.

    And anyone that feels the need to give me shit for not reading all the posts, remember it’s 38 pages.

    The reason manufacturers use 35w hid from factory instead of 55w is reliability. So to say LED isn't as bright as something that isn't necessarily reliable isn't really a fair comparison.

    Now compare LED to more reliable 35w hid setups and led matches or wins in most cases.

    Fwiw I have had vehicles with factory hids that have never had a single issue, ranging from 4 to 16 years old.
