Led headlights??
I was wondering if halogen replacement Led bulbs are available as i think the they should/could be much better than my car's present halogens. Are these available and what is the cost and is there any changes needed other than replacing the globes? Car in question is 2006 E60 530d pre Lci and also 2005 X3

Hey Soloman

I remember Mo frm AutoXcessories in Lenz keeps a wide variety. I got my set frm him like 5 yrs ago. Lasted quite well... one has just gone a little dimmer than the other- will probably check him out soon for another set plus interior/exterior for the X5

RE: Led headlights??
Do leds also have issues with the throw like hids in a none hid housing?

Generally i find cars with LED lights too bright, but that could be just a result of incorrect adjustment.

Check out Phillips website, they have a led retrofit kit for certain cars.

Fitted Phillips Leds to my halogens about two year ago no issues.

Initial price is expensive but you won’t be disappointed
