Don't waste your money, very few work well as a replacement. Yes they are bright but you get little or no beam pattern, so see no more at night. By the way, no LED headlight bulbs are 110 Watt, they are quoting (probably optimistically) the equivalent of a standard incandescent bulb. General rule of thumb is 10 Watts of LED is equivalent to 100 Watts incandescent. So a 110W LED would be like having a 1000W halogen. Just not possible.

If you want more light on the road ahead, get a set of Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited bulbs, or similar by Philips. Twice the light output, whiter light, and just a straight bulb replacement.

Cheers Brian - what LED bulbs do you recommend for interiors & other lights like indicators etc? Are there CANBUS issues?
