    HID Vs LED

    Went to install an HID kit I had for my eg assuming they wouldn't fit but I was optimistic. Since they don't fit I'm not sure about going for LED or buying another HID kit. I've read a lot about people having problems with their DRL's with LED's but I have my DRL fuse pulled so I'm not sure if that would fix the problem or not. What do you guys prefer HID or LED?

    I’ve always preferred the look of HID’s but I have a couple buddies with LED’s that look pretty can’t good as well.

    Thanks for your help. I’ll probably just stick with HID’s then

    Reflectors, stock headlight housing I’ve never put projectors in for HID’s and never had a problem.

    HID all the way. Led for fogs, hid for head light for sure. Leds are bright but don't project as well.

    Well I've had good look on the amazon by reading the reviews. There are also some videos on youtube that go into different brands.
