Have any of you switched out your headlights to plug-n-play LED headlights? If so, who or where did you get them?

I have twice * (emphasis on the footnote). FIrst was on a 2015 Toyota 4Runner, worked perfectly, easy to install, they are expensive, but comes with a 5 year warrenty, and look really nice. 100 % plug and play.... I ordered those amazon....
worked SO well and was SO easy, I decided to do it again, and it even says "universal" on the box, blah blah, and tried to do it on a 2005 Tahoe, plugged them in, and nothing happened....went back to Orileys where I bought them this time, and they said "oh sometimes it isnt compatable" - they didnt want to give me a refund,because they were dirty after i attempted to install----- even thought I asked if these would work with my car and they said yes---- but- they ultimately did after they sold me a conversion kit- which the wires had to be splcied together---- still didn't work- and i raised hell and they gave me all my money back....... guess my only point is, universal doesn't mean universal, and I have no idea why the toyota worked pefectly, and the tahoe wouldn't..... althought the tahoe was much older....

I dont remember the brand otherwise I'd post a link.....but, I do remember they were expensive....i'd say around $85, maybe? I did this about 2 years ago....toyota lights still running well.

If you're looking to get the best on the market and ones that won't cause blinding to oncoming traffic, look into Diode Dynamics.

They are the best I've used and seen in the aftermarket. They also stand by their product and have very fast shipping.

keeping my round eye projector type, I like how wide they are since it helps with spotting critters at night (lights their little eyeballs up really well)

Nothing beats a projector.

I used these from Sylvania, improved visibility at night tremendously. Bought them from Oriellys for about $100.00.

I've found universal fit means it doesnt fit anything in the universe.

I think they should be regulated properly. They are blinding and more dangerous on the road than drunk drivers.

People who drive with their fog lights on when it's not foggy are the worst! I wish the automakers would make those automatic, because clearly, people are too stupid to figure out how to turn them off and on at appropriate times.

I have had LED lights on both my Soul and now my Sonata...love them, but they are also not the kind that blind you. The first ones that hit the market were dangerous as all get out.
