^ lol like that guy who was cruising with the top down in the rain?

In other news, have a look at midsize SUV safety tests. For those getting a new family car it seems the Koreans now have top pick.

Next Suzuki Jimny









The front reminds me of a Hummer H1, while the sides has hints of a G-Wagen and a Jeep.

That looks more old-school than the current model. Cool.

started to change to LEDs. Already got H4 & H11. Waiting for T10s, brake and reverse lights to arrive. plus the electronic flasher for LED turn signals.

Very bright headlights, kaso pag aspalto and basa ang daan, mas madilim haha. kainis

Dreaming of converting my front turn lamps to switchbacks. kaso mahal pa.

is it because the LEDs are more white in terms of output?

Have that problem too with my fogs. Good thing I got dual colored LEDs. Just turn them off and on again to get yellow lights.

finally was able to find and buy a drill chuck to hex shaft adaptor... already found a local store that sold a 105 degree angle hex shaft attachment for a power drill and the only thing I lack was that darned drill chuck to hex shaft adaptor and I found it being sold in, where else but Raon.... one of the many ambulant vendors there was selling a 10mm drill chuck with that adaptor for only 200.

even cheaper that the ones sold in L*z*d*.... I need to drill out broken bolts around the engine bay in the car and replace it with good ones and I have all equipment I need to do it now:

drill chuck with hex shaft adaptor
105 degree hex shaft attachment
4.8mm drill bit to drill out a 10mm bolt (I have to use a 6mm x 1.5 pitch metric tap to make the threads again)
6mm to 6.5mm drill bit to drill out a 12mm bolt (12mm bolt uses 8 mm x 1.0 pitch metric tap)

 ;D

Are the LEDs projectors? I think that's the biggest difference really. Even good old halogen is awesome inside a projector housing.

I removed my HIDs and went back to halogens (Osram NB Lasers). I have the same issue with HIDs (even the stock ones in our Mazda2) and LEDs as jojitb. When it rains and a dark asphalt road, the extremely white light gets "absorbed". Also LEDs in a reflector housing, while looking very bright  head on, don't seem to "throw" light quite as far. I haven't tried LEDs in a projector housing yet. I bought a pair last year off the internet, but the Sorento uses a Euro-style bulb lock that utilizes the H7 plug as the lock (not the bulb itself) and also needs a CANBUS canceller otherwise the lights keep flickering on and off. I only got the adapter a few weeks ago. I'll try it next weekend.

Found a pretty good comparison vid showing different types of lights:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_aiA1cQsRs

Absolute worst stuff are HID in reflector housing, and LED in reflector housing. As it was with early HID replacements it's about getting the light source and housing working together.

Also there are headlights, and then there are headlights. The extreme difference in quality between the cheap HID/LED projectors and properly done ones like the Acura's is striking. Kinda understand now why there are some forum build threads where people retrofit Acura projectors into cars that already come with OEM HIDs.

I'm sure this topic has been explored in more detail over at motoring forums like kotse/tsikot.
