    Never heard of those brands, but new ones pop up all the time. Make sure to post pics once you get them installed. :thumbsup:

    Yea, that is why it was so hard to decided. There is just too many brand and so many mixed reviews on all the brands that it was giving me a headache ever since thinking of putting LEDs into the interior lights. The other brands that I was looking at was JDM ASTAR and Jtech for the front and Cutequeen for back one.

    Got my LED's today, and WOW, these are bright. The only issue that I have is the PWM when you press the button to turn them on manually. I wish you did not need to open the sun visor to get them brighter. I will get a photo when I get little bit of time.

    Well, this is kinda upsetting. My dad got in to the Envoy earlier and started to smell something weird. Then he seen a burned out bulb. So I opened it and found this:

    Not sure if it was the bulb or the socket because all the others are working fine for now. I am going to email the company about this as soon as I can.

    Socket wouldn't cause that. It was bulb failure.

    I thought so, too. I will have to hit the u pull it sometime soon. I had issues with the sockets in the tail lights a while back, and it was boards.

    Forgive me if this is mentioned within the 61 pages....lol...but I would like to try some LED 9006 bulbs, but would like to maintain my beam pattern for the most part. Just looking for something a little bit brighter than my standard halogen 9006 bulbs, but nothing that would produce an annoying glare to oncoming traffic.

    I'm not going to get anything Silverstar related, been there, done that...looking for something with some decent life in it.

    Your beam pattern will change a bit because you're using a different type of light source that our reflector bowls weren't designed for. There will also be glare when going from halogen to LED/HID. Whether or not it bothers the other drivers is subjective to each driver.

    The halogen alternative is to buy HIR bulbs, 9011 and 9012 are the ones you'd look for. They are beefed up halogen bulbs, and will not glare like LED/HID will.

    Link to some high beams I was considering to get to go along with my retrofit

    IF you really want LED for your highs, PM Kevin Hanson on here @DFWWIZ or on FB.
