    yea seriously. i don't see those things emitting much light at all. not even close to what a stock halogen would. now audi has led headlamps in production that actually do work though.

    Audi R8 gets first full LED headlamps - Autoblog

    First full-LED headlamp for the Audi R8
    • 54 high-performance LEDs provide all lighting functions
    • Color similar to daylight offers advantages at night
    • Innovative lighting technology as an option
    Ingolstadt – Effective immediately, the range of equipment available for the Audi R8 sports car now also includes the first full-LED headlamp. In addition to the daytime running light which now features 24 LEDs per headlamp, light-emitting diodes are also used for the turn signals, the low-beam and the high-beam headlights. The €3,590 option rounds out the list of equipment available for the high-tech, mid-engine sports car

    i wa sjust kinda curious abotu them. i have thsi tiny led flashlight i baught at an advanced auto parts store and it has 9 tiny led's and uses 3 aaa bateries and its real real powerfull and has the look and brightness of hid, and it only cost $2.50 for the best flash light i ever had and its keychain sized. so i was thinking a led headlight bulb that would hit the reflector good would be pretty powerfull. if i wasnt broke i would buy them and check it out. even though my crx came with those cheap ebay projectos and i drive around with the high beams aimed low.
