Are they night and day difference compared to the stock LEDs the Canadian models come with ? What optional equipment should I choose ? I want to swap it in while it’s parked in the garage. Thanks in advance

I am thinking that they might have sent you the 4500k bulbs? Compared to everyone else, yours looked very yellow! I think I will roll the dice with the 5500k because I don't want a blue-ish tint that I might get from the 6500k.

Yeah - I think they sent me the wrong bulbs too. They're sending replacements. I post pics with both!

Borrowed an idea from Aiirik in the other thread to mount mine with a small flat piece of steel. Painted the bracket on the relay covers to blend it all in.

Yup - that's where mine is mounted as well.

Any updates with the new 5500K bulbs?
Yes actually. Just switched them out on Friday. They are the same. They still look yellow and the lights are staring to shake already.

I’m just going to purchase bulbs from DDM Tuning. Both 5500k and 6500k and see which ones I like best. I’ll then sell the bulbs I don’t use. Sad, but that’s just what it is I guess. Not sure why the pics posted before mine look a lot more blue.
