How can I become a "tester" for Xenon Depot?

Re: What's the verdict on LED headlight bulbs vs. HID?

I can confirm that the lights have been installed, and do NOT cause any error codes.

Have not had a chance to upload pictures yet, but i've literally got a ton of pics.

Here is a review that a toyotanation member put up of them installed in a Toyota Camry:

Re: What's the verdict on LED headlight bulbs vs. HID?

Here is a copy of the email that I received from forum member @Wolfz23 (with permission):

Steve.
Server freaked out, zip file too big, I will break it up and send the pictures in groups


got the LED installed today. I took a bunch of pics, hopefully I got some of what you were looking for. Let me know if there is something more that is needed. I might not be able to get into it again until mid next week. I finished and it was still day light out, so I didn’t get any on road pics at night yet. I did have them on, on the way home which was almost dusk, and I did notice that the street signs werent “glowing” as much as they were before. however I had 8k lights before, so the reflective paint on the signs im sure will appear different with different temp lights.
I couldn’t really tell if the LED was hitting the same spread as the HID did. (I could clearly see the 8k HID blueish tint on road signs, even the high street signs mounted to stop lights.)

I did NOT need any type of canceler. I figured I wouldn’t because with my HID, 1 factory plug was completely unplugged (absolutely no resistance for TIPM to read) and the other was powering a relay, which again, is almost Zero resistance.
This is true for both headlights and fog lights. I just plugged in the LED, spread out the heatsinks, and they worked, with no trouble lights or indicators on the dash.

the Fog lights, one could installed in about 20 min without removal of anything major.

1 – Turn the steering wheel all the way to the right.
2- Go to DRIVERS wheel well.
3- remove 2 plastic rivets.
4 - remove 1- 10mm bolt
5 - unsnap wheel well trim.
6 - Turn “access panel” counterclockwise until the tabs line up with the slots and remove the pane.
7 -Fold back Carpet wheel well liner.
9 - Full and easy access to the back of the Fog light assembly.
9 - plug n play.
10 - Test
11 - reassemble.

Turn steering wheel to the LEFT
go to pass side
Repeat steps 3-11 from above.

e-mail me or call me if there is anything else or more pictures or questions.
