LASFIT LED Upgrade For Headlight & Front Turn Signal - Before & After Pictures Plus Review

#1
Hey everyone, My wife had mentioned that the low beam and front turn signal light bulbs in our 2010 Corolla were looking a bit dim.

I'm pretty sure that they are the original "OEM" bulbs so I did some research and I didn't realize that halogen bulbs can get a bit dimmer as they age. I knew that standard incandescent bulbs like the front turn signal would get dimmer over time but I was surprised that the halogen bulbs have the same issue.

We bought this 2010 model year car from Hertz back in 2012. I figured almost ten years was good enough for the OEM bulbs.

The LASFIT brand had good reviews on Amazon so I got the 9006 and 3357A (amber) equivalent light bulbs.

I first installed the front turn signal bulbs and WOW they are super bright. It doesn't show up very well in the pictures but I was super impressed.

Then I installed the low beam bulbs. The instructions say to adjust the LEDs so that they are pointing out to the outside edges of the car (rather than up and down). So I rotated them to be at 6PM and 3PM on a clock.

With the engine off, you can hear the small fan kick on to cool off the bulb. Once again I was super impressed by the amount of light produced by the bulbs. It made our old Corolla almost look like one of those brand new BMWs or Mercedes Benz cars with the crazy bright LED headlights. The color temperature was a nice bright daylight that looked high end.

I'm hoping that since LEDs are supposed to last something like 20,000 to 50,000 hours, I won't ever have to change them again or worry about them getting dim over time.

Hi. Just some questions. You didn’t had to worry about hyper flashing with your signal lights? How does the LED headlights illuminate the road at night time? You know, in comparison with the old halogen lights.

Hi, apparently the bulbs are engineered to not hyper flash. I think it said "no hyper flashing" on the product details page. The front turn signals work perfectly. I do lose the "parking" dim light feature of the old incandescent dual filament bulbs but the regular front side marker bulb also acts as a "parking" light so I'm not too worried about it.

The LED headlights are definitely a lot brighter than our old original halogen bulbs. My wife loves how she can see better at night. The beam seems to be the same to me. I still need to polish out the haze on the headlights. That should also help. :)

Whatever bulbs you buy, be sure to read the instructions. My Lasfit headlight bulbs had to have the LEDs pointed to the 3pm and 6pm position.

I'm not going to bother upgrading the high beams. They hardly ever get used except for the occasional flashing of another car to let them go first at a four way stop sign.

Well, I couldn't resist also getting the brake, rear turn signal and reverse light bulbs.

Wow, they are crazy bright!

My wife loves how the reverse lights really get noticed when backing up in a crowded parking garage with maniacs zipping around the corners. :cool:
