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

Those look like the same model I use, and I don't have any interference issues.

I can tell you from first hand experience...writeups are fun to do, but sometimes when you start putting words down...you don't have a pic to go with something critical. :)

You can always just unhook it/hook up the OEM stuff and drive around and see how much of a difference it is making, but I didn't have noticeable issues (and still don't).
