    Funny you should ask.

    Fedex tacking informs me that my headlights will be here tomorrow. If I have some spare time during the week I'll try and get the swap done, otherwise it'll be Saturday at the latest.

    Re: Platinum LED Headlamps

    Its really not worth it to buy unless you get it for 1500$ for both new and I heard that they are not as bright as ours. Just do the Park LEDS, DRL LEDS and replace the xenon to 5000k and it looks nicer.

    I've heard that they are not as bright as well.... and I love the output of the HID's on ours... I do like the look of those lenses on the Plat though.

    If I end up getting in a front end accident and the insurance pays for it to be fixed i'll have my local shop do the front end swap for me with the money, otherwise it's just too expensive to do the front end conversion with headlights for me at least. Looks good though if you are able to pay to play.

    Re: Platinum LED Headlamps

    Can someone with a Platinum confirm what each led does that way I know they are working properly when I get them installed on Saturday?

    Perhaps you would be kind enough to use a pic to draw what led and section does what ... as in which leds are low beam, which are high beam, which are drl, and which are park lights?

    Thanks.



    ----------

    Btw, if I understand it correctly, the two leds below the cadillac crest are the high beams, the verical strip next to the amber side markers is a park light, and the row of four rectangular leds and a round led (5 total) are the low beams. The DRL is a low voltage version of the 5 low beam leds or are the two high beam leds also on as DRL?

    ----------

    NVM ... I think I got it. http://www.archivedsites.com/techlin...k_March_09.pdf

    That is correct. I still didn't do mine yet. Did you get the harness?

    Re: Platinum LED Headlamps

    Yup got the harness to be safe (22908046).

    I guess if the one I have on now doesn't work I'll have 'em swap it and see if it makes a difference. Hopefully there won't be any splicing of two harnesses required.

    ^^^ Great job!! They aren't as bright as HID, but do provide much better/even coverage and are not as offensive to other drivers. I LOVE MINE!!!!
