those HID's in the eye are from morons putting them in a housing/reflector that wasn't designed for them.

here's a good place to get some, lower watt/lumen but also lower price than most i've seen. i have made multiple orders from them and have been more than satisfied.
don't know how much that one cost but here is one i have in my wish list that's sold out but a search will find more:

For $10 more, a little work, and the peace of mind of DOT approval, get these instead:

2015 Murano LED Projector System - Closeouts

OEM LED headlights (low- and high-beam) from the 2015 Nissan Murano. Each LED is 11w; I ordered a set today and am going to try retrofitting my stock headlights.

that IS a great price and the cut-off looks good. i would like to get a set for me to try but can't right now. maybe in a couple of weeks. i will buy a set of lights cheap off CL or JY so i won't be without them while i fit them in. thanks for the info.

I don't know how good of a light bar it is. At only $100 and 52'' long, its hard to say. But it doesn't come with any switches, wires or relays.
I would likely go with a curved, 100 watt bar and whatever it is, it has to be less than 48''.

Yeah I was looking at that after I posted this picture I noticed other light sources appeared brighter.
If a light bar manufacturer claims 30,000 lumens, even if its really only 20,000 lumen that still like adding 20 halogen head lights to the front of your car.

I use two 20 watt LED flood lights and it lights up my most of my 1/3 acre front yard. This is 7.5 times that wattage of my flood lights.

The beam pattern is so wide and tall you could never turn that thing on when on a road with other cars around.

I got on there the other day after one of these LED threads popped back up just to see what they had (they've had Prius LED assemblies for sale in the past, so I check occasionally). I was surprised to see these, and apparently they have hundreds of them. Looks like they'll be a lot easier to retrofit than the Prius LEDs to boot, and the fact that you get high beams too makes them a great deal for the price.

Here's a field expedient fix for the LED in an H-4 reflector. I held a piece of cardboard in the beam to judge placement. I though covering the bottom would do it; but it turned out to be the top.
