Re: H.I.D. vs LED pictures.

Which headlights do you have?

The halogen reflectors from 11-13 OR the halogen projectors 14+ ?

Darn.
I would like to see pics of the LED bulbs with the 11-13 halogen reflectors.

On a positive note, the pics of the different bulbs shining on your garage door are great comparative pics. Shining down the street gives people an idea of how good the light projects, but the garage door pics gives you an idea of how much light 'bleed' there is from the bulbs.

H.I.D. vs LED pictures.

It looks like they make a great improvement the in the fog lights as for the pics with just the headlights it doesn't seem as bright. I have the same set in my 15 altitude just low beams and on wet roads and such I really can't see that great. Also on mine they weren't plug n play. When I had just the bulbs plugged in to my oe harness they would work when the vehicle was off but as soon as you started it they would flicker and go off. I then had xenon depot send me a capacitor setup. Hooked that up and the lights would work when the vehicle was on but would turn off ever once and and awhile for a few seconds then come back on. They then sent me a capacitor setup with relay harness. Now the lights stay on all the time but the passenger side is slightly flickering you can't notice it while driving but when your behind another vehicle or looking at it it's noticeable. Tried different grounds no change so still in the process of figuring it out. Was wondering if you had any input and also would you recommend hids or these for low beams. Which did you think was brighter while driving I've never had hids so I can't compare. I was thinking about ordering hids for the low beams and just putting the leds in the fogs

Im still 50/50 on LED or HID, If I HAD to choose id say LED, just because of the simplicity of install. On paper an LED is more stable, as well as will last longer.
I agre with you on wet pavement, the lights dont seem as bright weather its HID or LED. both seem way less bright on wet roads. As far as your flicker issue, it could be a bunch of things. If using the relay, and capicators, there should be stable power at the plug, so I would start with the bulb. It may not be the easiest solution, but switch the passenger side and the drivers side. bulb only, and see if the flicker stays on the same side, or if it moves. If it moves, then your bulb is the issue. If the flicker stays, then its a whole different issue. Simplest way would be to just power both low beams off the non flickering side. The flicker could be caused by high resistance to ground on the ground wire, low voltage on the 12v wire, low amperage on the 12v wire, loose plug. All not easy things to t-shoot, since you have to take the bumper off to access the headlight.
can also try turning off your DRL in your touch screen (day time running lights) I dont remember which option its under, but go to settings, and flip through themm uncheck the box.
WORST case senario, you could, with a relay, trigger your Low beams, from your pk lights, so when your pk lights come on, your headlights will as well. this woudl render your "headlight" position on the switch null, but if you wanted the headlights on you just turn it to pk lights.
