The bulbs are the issue, mine lost their output after about six months. I thought my eye sight was getting worse at first. Swapped bulbs and they work much better. We have been selling the Morimoto bulbs and have been happy with them.

That's something wrong inside the headlight assembly, if it's still under warranty I would get a dealer to fix it. To remove the headlight assembly you have to remove the front bumper, not an easy bulb swap.

Great post. I don't like the stock HID bulb output. Wanted to get LED conversion but this thread saved me a lot of money. Going to try this option.

Also if anyone else is wondering how to remove the old bulb I found this great video that shows how easy it is ...

So the new 6000k bulbs went out after 2 weeks. Guess you get what you pay for SO I Finally did the HID to LED headlight conversion. The output is a little bit brighter and has a crisp tone . Definitely not a simple plug and play upgrade. Requires removing the front wheels and bumper to pull the headlights. Then you have to remove the stock hid bulbs & ballast and tap into the two black wires that go into the ballast. The new LED bulbs will connect to those two black wires. Took all day, but I’m happy with the results. Let me know if anyone else has done this upgrade or is interested in doing it.

Philips, Osram, or Morimoto from theretrofitsource.com

6000K is a hint of blue. The higher in kelvin you go, the lower the lumen and blue-er color sometimes even purple.

Personally I would stick with 5000K or 5500K for the whitest output. Perfect match with the factory LEDs too
