I was looking into replacing my oem headlights with some hiD lamps. Any suggestions? I was thinking about going with the piaa set they have on quadratec. Although I'm sure I can get them cheaper elsewhere
this is a great HID setup, i have a set of morimoto 5five on my subaru. and you can also take a look at a set of LED headlights like this kit, most people say to stay away from leds because they done get hot enough to keep your headlights from ice forming on you lense in the winter, but the leds in these kits get hot

... most people say to stay away from leds because they done get hot enough to keep your headlights from ice forming on you lense in the winter...
This is just not true - I have the truck-lites on my TJ which is driven daily in Colorado rocky mountain winters... Zero issues with visibility resulting from ice forming on the lens and we've had some pretty nasty ice storms so far this spring. The LED lens' do actually get fairly warm...
For some reason people on this forum try to talk you out of LED lights - the only reason I can see to not get them is the price. If you can afford them, they'll be easier to install than HID's, just as bright, and will last 10 times longer than HID's.
They could be the cheaper HID retrofits. A good HID setup is still the best as far as beam pattern and length/width of the beam goes. Problem is the good ones are ridiculously expensive, since they are basically variations of the ones used in the high end Audis, BMWs, etc. Also, the cheap retrofits offer options of the more blue color...pretty useless and tacky-looking.
I just installed the Truck Lites and returned them. The beam pattern, artifacts, and reflective foreground were pretty annoying and fatiguing. The search continues, and I am focusing on the JW SPeakers and the Cibies, since my favorite HID setup is around $1,500. If the HID cutoff is well-defined, there should be no annoying glare for oncoming drivers.
