H4 Housings that don't suck, and the search for a decent LED that fits

Post by Jefferson » Fri May 18, 2018 2:16 pm

I had purchased some many years ago and the "upgrade" was minimal at best.Even with more expensive silverstar H4 halogen bulbs in them. I always thought that so called "projector" things blocking the bulb was dipshit, I knew in theory why it was there, always seemed counterproductive.
This year I wanted some LED bulbs, so I ordered up a set popped them in, BINGO, much brighter than anything else I had used in these housings. BUT, my lights would NOT go down because of those HUGE cooling fans on all of them. Sold em for what I paid.....

Ordered a set of new housings that have a glass face looking very much like how the old sealed beams looked. No ricey shit like that blocker, city light, or dumbass halos..... nice.

Also ordered a pair of LED H4's advertised for motorcycles, no rear fan, viola....."almost" perfect... three elements 2 for dims, and all three for brights....only problem was the 3rd element was pointed up and to the right, on BOTH sides of the car. I ordered another cheap set with 4 sides and a lensed tip that also lights up. We will see how well they function after dark. Meanwhile, I pried at the metal collar and repositioned the 3rd element on the 1st set at the top and will test again and report back.

These are the housings, they come with "super white" halogen bulbs, which I didn't even try out. The housings are pretty darn nice in my opinion. I'll check back with results from both bulbs and add those links as well.
