jackramsey posted a topic in Glass, Lenses, Lighting, Mirrors, Sunroof (BAMR), WipersWife got a 2016 Lincoln MKX Premier, and I got a 2016 Edge SEL last month and really happy from driving an 2002 Explorer for 18 years. Got into my wife's Lincoln for the first time last night and BLOWN away by the diference with her HID headlights compared to my halogens with 36K miles. Started researching and settled on "SEALIGHT H11/H9 Low Beam 9005/HB3 High Beam LED Headlight Bulbs Combo. LOTS of various info out there and hard to "sort through it all" but VERY happy with the results. I purchased the H11-9005 S2 kit and was pleasantly suprised that the output was as good as my wife's 2016 Lincoln MKX with Factory HID. Low beam LED alignment perfect 90 degree. Exceptional product. Great replacement for 2016 Ford Edge
mallard posted a topic in Glass, Lenses, Lighting, Mirrors, Sunroof (BAMR), WipersAfter my failed one year experiment with XenonDepot LED bulbs in my 2013 halogen projectors I decided to look around to see if there were any better halogen bulbs out there. I found this discussion on candlepowerforums: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?390701-2014-Sierra-Projector-Headlamps-best-upgrade I took a chance on the Vosla +30 HIR2 bulbs and I have to say they're a noticeable improvement over the stock halogen bulbs (lets not even talk about how much better they are than the LEDs). Beam reach is significantly better, they really throw the light down the road. I think the color is whiter as well but note that the bulb lifespan is also shorter than the long life bulbs. You can get them on Amazon or GM Parts Direct. Price is very competitive with current HIR2 offerings.
af_maineiac posted a topic in Glass, Lenses, Lighting, Mirrors, Sunroof (BAMR), WipersI'm looking for a plug-and-play headlight bulb replacement/upgrade to the stock HIR2 bulbs on my 2013 Edge Sport. What I'd REALLY like to do is a full HID upgrade to the 9006 Morimoto Elite HID System (Morimoto 3Five 35w ballasts) from TRS, but I've heard of issues with the HIDs flickering with the DRLs on. So I've resorted to the 'next best thing', which would simply be a HIR2 bulb upgrade. My question is, am I limited to the 9012 (HIR2) bulb, or can I replace my OEM bulb with the 9006? I've heard good reviews about the PIAA 9006 and was looking to pull the trigger on one of the following: http://www.piaa.com/store/c/21-Automotive-Bulbs.aspx?Attribs=49 Thanks!
