Osram 4x6 LED headlights

Even with the higher output Sylvania halogen headlights, it still sucks to drive at night. I have the four rectangular headlights, two each of the 1A1 type and 2A1 type. I believe one is high-only beams. They seem to be a lot of uber expensive led replacements, but these are DOT approved and have a good rating as well as only $115 for a four pack. Some rewiring required to get full use of all four low or high beams at the same time or to add daylight driving lights option. Anybody have real world experience with these? https://www.amazon.com/Headlights-Re...ct_top?ie=UTF8

Damn those look really good! I will be picking up a set to put into our 89 crown royale. I was looking for some with black housings so they blend in when off with the black grille.
Some of the customer photos look really good!

My concern with these particular headlights is that the low beam reviews was less than stellar. It is the low beams that get used 90% of the time. On the freeway in medium traffic at night, raining, you don't often get to flick on the high beams. Actually right now I do, don't have a choice the low beams are so bad. And even the highs are so bad I seldom get flashed.

I do think the real good led headlights are still hundreds of dollars.

Hella e code headlights seem to have the best light pattern and throw, about 130 for a set of 4. Just regular halogen though

I agree, because most of the stock headlight housings are junk. My E450 has dismal lights, so I put in LED bulbs. It now reflects light off in all sorts of weird ways. I adjusted them downward to not blind traffic, but I really need to do the whole conversion--pull the headlight housings apart, drill them to accept an LED projector housing, and glue it back together. Time, money, and terror when I'm baking my headlights in the oven...

Anyway, they are terrible and they came from Ford that way. The ones that were installed willy-nilly by a Class A manufacturer... well, I can only imagine.

I just finished putting some JW Speaker snowplow light housings on my '02 MA. Haven't driven it yet (sigh...) but the quality of the product is apparent. So was the cost.

No question when on high beams, good to hear, but how are the low beams compared to stock? That is where my lights are 90% of the time.

Low beams are better than stock high beams!
