2017 Honda Civic - GTR Lighting 5th Generation HID Conversion Kit. "I tried several LED bulbs off of Amazon, and none of them could beat the halogens in terms of lighting distance, and I tried four or five different kinds.
I stumbled across the LED headlight bulb shootout done by Headlight Revolution, and upon visiting their website, I knew that it was the real deal. I used to own a 2008 Jeep, and was well versed in quality lighting options (Rigid light bars, JW Speaker headlights, etc.). On the website, I found all of the excellent brands I had known as a Wrangler owner, and knew these people had my Civic lighting solution.
I looked first at the GTR LED headlight bulbs, as I am a huge fan of LED's and have never owned HID's before. I also looked at this product, the HID kit. I noticed a tidbit about LED's in projector housings on the GTR LED bulb product page, which was a very welcome touch to the website, and ultimately led to me buying this kit. They recommended buying an HID kit for projector housings, and based on my experience with the Amazon LED's, things started to make some sense.
It was hard to swallow the cost of the HID's, and I was very hopeful that spending so much on a lighting solution would yield excellent results. At the same time, I also purchased the GTR LED headlight bulbs for my high beams, which are reflector housings, and what LED's are recommended for.
Now, on to the brightness. Wow. I am very impressed with the light this kit puts out. The effect is most noticeable when driving on an unlit stretch of highway, next to other cars. I can't help but chuckle at the inferiority of factory halogen headlight bulbs in other cars. This kit makes those headlights look like the equivalent of a match being held out the car window.
Overall, I am very impressed thus far. Time will tell how long the bulbs will last, and I hope they last the specified 2500 hours. That's nothing compared to LED's, but the light output is excellent, so I am happy. Overall, other than the price, I am very pleased." - Matthew R.
