I think one guy on here has LED bulbs in his lights. IMHO, like HIDs they will blow out your cutoff like HIDs unless you have housings or projectors designed for them.

I'd want to see those in use before installing them. Just looking at them it looks like you'd be shining LEDs right in the faces of oncoming traffic. If you look at these JW Speakers, you can see that each LED has it's own little projector which is used to provide a cutoff for the beam so it doesn't get in people's faces. http://www.jwspeaker.com/products/le...900-evolution/

JW Speaker are literally the best LED headlight out there. Look at the trucklite too. 2 LEDs, one that reflects up top for low beams.and one lower for high beam. They are pretty nifty but might take a sec to get used to looking at.

A LED bulb may be, say, 55w but with the efficiency of it it.may actually put out more light than a 100w halogen. The focal point will also likely be different which will destroy any hope for a cutoff.

Cutoff is this nice sharp line you get with projectors. Keeps you from blinding oncoming traffic. This was before I adjusted mine so they're a little off but you get the idea.
