    I have had these installed since February of this year. Plug and play and fit behind the dust caps. Nice stock beam pattern but much brighter than stock. Especially in rainy/wet conditions. Perfect color match to the fogs. My neighbor has them in his three cars, Honda, Chevy, and Ford. No issues and he's had them about 4 months longer than mine. Amazon description:

    Yep. Knew that going in. Better to spend $37 on an experiment with a 2 year warranty than $150. We'll see how they hold up.

    Didn't take pics of the cutoffs on the garage door but it's spot on with the stock ones. The projector lens helps a lot. My son-in-law has a F150 with the standard reflector housing and the LEDs just look whiter and brighter but I don't think they push the beam down the road nearly as well.

    I went back to halogens for the same reason. Was changing out halogens every year, went HID and ended up cooking the ignitor on the driver's side after only a year. For the cost of one HID bulb and ignitor I can get several sets of halogen bulbs.

    I am interested in LED bulbs but need more info. Most LED bulbs don't throw light as far as halogen or hid. If that isn't an issue I would look to change over...

    Grover - See my post above - the light pattern with the LEDs is much better with the projector style lens than the larger reflector.

    This!!! Had them almost 2 years no issues...300 for a set of good LEDs is a great deal...price some jw speakers or similar quality LEDs not Chinese junk. For the price, quality, and simple installation the DD LEDs are the way to go. FWIW I went brighter than OEM as live in area heavily populated with Kamikaze Deer and very few to no street lights.
