I have shortlisted these two because both sellers are confident that it will not throw up "bulb out" error in cluster but i am still skeptical.

Any suggestions?
I will soon be getting delivery of LED H4 and H7 for my Yeti from AliExpress. And I will tell you if the 'bulb out' error comes up (I had also ordered the CANBUS decoders for the LED holder types respectively, to correct flickering and error bulb out link - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Osla...ceBeautifyAB=0).

Not sure if the Rayzers are available now. Do you know where to source them?

Their website mentions a pricetag of 674$ today. Check the last line in the following link. http://www.sigmaautomotive.com/light...yes/rayzer.php

Upgraded the headlamps on my Liva from the already Non stock(100/90w) ones to LEDs.

Ordered the 4300k, 9000 lumens LED lamps on Ali Express' sale last month. Had been eagerly waiting for the package and it finally arrived today. The first thing I did after getting home from office was to get down to business and fix those new shiny LEDs.

Removing the old Halogens and fixing the LEDs is not an easy task on a car with extremely tight space when you have giant hands.

It took me about 30-40mins to do this without any assistance and with one emergency lamp.

There's a visible difference in the color and brightness. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

It would be better to take pics against a wall for both. With these pics we can't see the colour or the throw an beam pattern.

Can barely tell which is better.

I haven't taken pics of the LED against the wall. However, here are the videos of the comparison.

LED vs Halogen


All LED


Attaching the pictures of the halogen I took.

Managed to take pictures of the LED against the wall. I feel their spread out on the road isn't much as the halogen or maybe the light isn't as visible as the yellow ones. Never know until I try out on the highway.

Quality issues with Xenon Planet products are never ending

I am having tough time in my Baleno with projector setup from Xenon Planet. I was living with colour mismatch, bowing of beam at edges, reduced output etc.

Now the headlights are acting very weird. Headlight doesn't switch on at times and it won't turn off also couple of times.

I do not have much knowledge on wiring / electricals. Is it a bad HID relay? Xenon Planet had used some cheap Chinese relay. Few of my friends have thrown it away and got Morimoto HID relay (much better quality).

Is there any way to fix the issue? Do I need to buy new relay? Definitely not from Xenon Planet

Symptoms point to a sticky relay. Get a local Minda/Roots relay of same pin layout and replace. Should take 10-15 mins to replace

Your halogens are much much better.
What's the wattage of the LEDs?

Going by what my friends who perfomed the similar upgrade said, the LEDs really come on their own, on the highways. Within the city, there isn't much difference except for the fact that people actually stop upon continuous hi-low flash, which wasn't the case with the Halogens.

Each LED is 36W and the lighting is very good in dark areas. I'll have to test it out on the highways to actually see how different they are.

Brightness wise the 90/100 watt halogens may throw the same amount of lumens as your LED but in LEDs at high beam both high and low turn on which makes a difference vs. halogens. Cant tell from your pics if that is happening or not but i see that in my car's H4.
