Hey guys, I thought I'd share this. I just left SEMA- in fact, I'm sitting in the airport now. While I'm waiting, I wanted to share this with you guys. I hooked up with a Chinese company that manufactures Cree LED automotive lighting (one of the 100's out there LOL). They had some new products and I was able to snag an H7 LED headlight kit to try out.
These LEDs seem pretty legit and the color looked pretty good in their booth although I'm not sure if they will be too blue as the package says 6K-6.5K. Who knows, but that's the only choice for white. These guys are an OEM so their packaging is pretty generic. They also make a yellow LED headlight kit.
For comparison, a typical 35W HID kit will do about 3400 lumens, or 1700 lumens per bulb.
They had a lumen test rig in their small booth and he let me test one of the bulbs from this kit. I zeroed it out and it came out to about 1750 lumens for one bulb which is very impressive to me, especially considering the price. I paid him $30 for a kit at the show, so I felt like if they were no good, it was only $30. Pretty sure that's their wholesale price.
Here's a pic of one of the bulbs that I shot in the airport on my carbon fiber laptop skin for coolness effect lol. Sorry for the blurriness.
I'll report back when I can get these installed in my LGT wagon. Maybe they'll suck, maybe they'll be awesome, who knows! I have the guy's card so if it's great, I might be able to set up a buy or something.
