Provides a brighter, crisper and whiter light output, closer to the color temperature of daylight, dramatically improving light projection distance and overall visibility
So my guess would be no.

Yes I am seeing LEDs with nice white and white with a little yellow tint to them.
I think all the inconsiderate morons out there go for the color they know will irratate other drives the most.

I want LEDs that look like stock lights in most cases.
LEDs that are brite white with a bit of blue would go good behind the instrumentation. In older GM vehicles the area around the bulbs is white and part where the light reflects back on to the gauges is light blue.

I think they also go on the false impression that the higher the color temperature the brighter the light. I know thats how I thought at one point.

Using a big gob of red/orange high temperature RTV on the back of the G4 array works really well as a heat sink.

For $500 for the lights and another $100 or more for junk yard front end and grill to convert from the 4 head light system to the 2 head light system I think I shelve that project for now, maybe in the mean time some one will come out with cheaper 4656 LED head light that will be a drop in replacement, no modification needed.
I would do LED low beams and keep my halogen high beams.

I found a cheap pair of 4x6inch LED head lights on ebay.
They should fit both my camaro and truck.
Not expecting much from them, figured I would give them a try since I have money stuck in paypay (apperantly they only let you withdraw $500 per month).

I wouldn't mind throwing down a real amount of money for real DOT approved lights that work really well.
