dang so even with can-bus you still have the warning ? dang maybe hid is the way to go ? I really want LEDS
Mind if I ask why ?
Here's my 0.02 on the LED vs HID thing :
- Bulb for bulb, xenons win in output.
- LED output (lumens) is vastly exaggerated online. We have a trusted vendor here who sells both technologies, and admits HIDs have superior output.
- In our Cherokee halogen projectors, the HIDs I've seen keep the projectors' original beam pattern and cutoff. I've seen a few LED bulbs in these same projectors and patterns were erratic at best, no crisp cutoff with too much bleeding up.
- While xenon and LED bulbs produce genetically different colors, a 4300K or 5000K xenon will come close to the DRLs, close enough for those who care about that stuff anyway.
- From what is available on the market (aftermarket) right now for our Cherokees, no LED kit has proven as reliable or stable as the most popular HID kits.
I understand that the future of lighting is most likely LED, but for our halogen projectors, nothing beats xenon bulbs right now... for performance, cutoff and reliability.
The new adaptive LED light systems we see coming out of Germany are incredible, far better than anything we've ever seen, but you can't get close to that with a single LED bulb replacing one halogen bulb with optics that are not LED friendly...
So while I get the excitement for LEDs, I don't think they are the best option for the KL halogen projectors. Not even close, actually... and they may even be highly offending to oncoming eyes because of the bleed.
Edit to add : when I say HIDs are more reliable, I don't mean bulb life (LEDs will last 20X longer than xenons roughly...) ; I mean fire up consistantly and with no errors.
