Sylvania headlights and LED headlight accent lights

Going for that "ubercool" Lexus look, maybe... Not sure if I really, really like them, so let me know what you think...

I personally do not like those ultra bright headlights. They are blinding for other drivers, so I dont think they are safe. Could just be because I dont have them, and havent seen the positives of the setup. I like the LEDs though.

I don't think these are annoying anyone - no one is (yet) flashing me - but my visibility is dramatically improved. The lines on the road "pop" a lot more, and when the brights are on, the difference is exceptionally noticeable. Definitely one of the "why didn't I do this before" mods.

Next mod is tail/reverse light LEDs. One set of tails is already replaced, the others are enroute. eBay link for those interested.

Thats Kind of what I figured, maybe next set I will step it up to a better set. I just dont like the ones that literally blind you

Brighter and whiter lights don't blind you, poorly aimed lights, or installing lights in the wrong type of housing is what blinds you.
