    Hid or Led

    Forum Key Rings
    i currently have a hid kit fitted 55w 5000k, one of my bulbs has gone, so im thinking should i get replacement bulbs ? or Leds

    Its just if you need to flash your lights hid have a slow warm up so not very effective, anyone used both hid and led for comparing

    It's a face lift so the one bulb does both jobs

    Have a look at these guys, I've had a few bulbs from them in the past.

    https://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/led-headlight-bulbs/

    Not sure what bulbs you need, but they say on the write up that these have the same beam pattern as standard halogen.

    I've always found H.I.D to surpass LED. Back with my Passat I tired 3 different types of LED h7 bulbs and although bright lacked range. I switched to some car rovers in that and never looked back.

    My car came with the AFL lighting and when compared with cars like Volvo's it's clear the beam pattern with HID has more distance.

    Right headlight is running a HID and left a LED.
