LED vs HID 93 Mustang

Sylvania Silverstars on my Coupe and the light output is really good. Not as good as the LED from my 2020 F150 but apples and oranges. I did install relays for the low and high beam both and that helped immensly with the output. As 2000xp8 mentioned the headlight switch provides the power for the high and low beam directly to the head lights which was a bad idea from the factory but when you add a higher wattage bulb to the mix it has caused the switch to overhead and fail. Plenty of write ups on how to do this so use the search function.

HID conversion over on the Corral that turned out really well:

Nice. Thanks for the link. Looks like the HID projectors that were used in that thread were $380. Hoping there was be a more cost effective option.

Shop around and use Google. Costs have gone out the roof since he did his and I will go out on a limb here and say that prices are not going to come back down much. Once they increase prices they stay there and it takes years for our pockets to catch up.

You can research the dimensions of the HID unit itself and then see if you can find another brand with the same or close to the same dimensions that is cheaper. Would stress you also need to research reviews on anything you are going to buy but that should go without saying.
