I've done a conversion to LED bulbs for my Z31 .. using bulbs mfg'd by Pilot .. they're not bad ..

I plan to change out to these bulbs ..

http://www.ledtronics.com

After you look at the site .. you'll know why I haven't done it yet .. these bulbs are NOT CHEAP ..

I'm thinking of doing the same for the Armada .. but I haven't looked at how to change the bulbs out "yet" ...

I think they come on a few milliseconds quicker, wont burn out that fast, brighter, and comsume less power.

Come on unmeasurably faster. Who cares.
Regular bulbs take about 60-75K to burn out so after purchasing a replacement(instead of purchasing LEDs), they last 120-150K with a second set. Who cares.
They consume insignifigantly less free power. Unless you are running your alternator to the brink with extra equipment, lights, stereo, etc, this won't matter. Moreso, if you are that close on an alternator that it would matter, you probably want to upgrade anyway.

Brighter is the only one that matters. Wonder how much? :confused:

Oh, and the last one, looks. QX has them so it is "better". :smart: ;)

Why does it matter if it benefits the Armada or not by putting in LED bulbs.As long as you don't take away from the performance of the original bulb,who cares.Everyone has their own taste.They paid the 40k plus for THEIR vehicle so they can do what they want.

Why does it matter to you if someone thinks it matters or not?
1. Who cares if they paid $1 or $1mm? Does paying a certain amount of money for something grant someone special status?
2. No one said they couldn't do what they want with their own vehicles in this or any post.
3. I thought there was freedom to comment about things. Guess you don't want that.
4. I didn't say it was good or bad, only wanted to know why.
5. The commentary wasn't directed too or at you.
6. I think this comment is way overeacting. This belongs to the rebuttle categry of insulting someone's mother, not questioning why use LED for taillights.
7. I may get some if they make a real difference. I've been hit in the rear twice in other vehicles.
8 I never said it was in poor taste though if I did, what would it matter?
9. My only experience with LEDs is with kids who put them in to be cool and an LED flashlight that sucks next to a regular bulb. I wanted to know if my experence with them was accurate and reflective of replacement LED bulbs.
10. I would advise not to do it if it lowered output of light in the rear as per experince in accidents, hense my question for his and others safety.
11. I really don't like people jumping in and attacking because someone asks a question or has a comment.

Any other bright comments? :fullofit: :rolleyes:

Nah. The guy I nuked wasn't the guy with the question. I nuked someone who jumped in on a follow up question I had that I thought was reasonable, "why use LEDs?". Admittedly my analysis was a little "cute", but nothing out of line. But I felt the response from the guy who jumped me was a little over the top for what I had posted. Besides, I like red meat. :D

LED's

Well the reason I asked is they are supposed to alot brighter then a regular bulb . And brighter can't be a bad thing if you ask me .

Sometimes it's best to go ahead and type up whatever you want, and then click the "X" and close the program. Notice I didn't say anything about hitting "submit".
