Interesting on the LED headlights, looked at your pictures on your site. Looks like they have a clean cut off but not the flick to the left you get with the original headlights. Which will be OK at MOT time, American cars are the same a flat cut off on dipped beam.

I am struggling to see the difference between dipped and main beam on your garage door picture. Be interesting to see the on road pics hopefully these will show the difference better.

I've added a few more pics on the FB post, showing difference between low n high a bit better.

Those pictures show it better, be interesting to see how you find them to drive by. I have ran HID on the coupe took my time to research, the colour of the bulbs can have a big effect on how they are in use. they were pretty good and better than the halogens.

I have even tried some other halogen bulbs all e marked etc and they were poor for glare.

Any update/feedback on these replacement headlights? I've been thinking of something similar for a while and have now noticed the reflectors are rusty on my driving lights so maybe its time to act. Do you have a link to the headlight units (assuming you are happy with them)?

The bottom driving lights i'm pleased with thus far, pretty good deal on a pair here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/CO-LIGH ... st=ae803_3

The headlights are ok i'd say, haven't used em much as I don't do much night driving but they're no worse than OE and i've had no flashes from oncoming traffic. Only niggle with em is on low beam they interfere with radio reception a bit.

MOT is due around august so we'll see what they say about em...

I also spotted these, which fit my criteria of 'do they look like they'll fit the mounts' there also seems to be three fixings integrated into the back which might be adaptable to do away with the OE mounts altogether. They are about twice the cost of the style I got and no idea if beam pattern is any good etc.

Look to be a clone of the Denali M5 or Vision Vortex.
