Reliable source of CRE LED H8 kits

well another kit on me has failed.

Had a kit from a HIDSdirect initially the 16W one but that after about 11montsh starter to flicker.

Swapped it out for new set 20W and recently started to get really bad radio reseption so this kit is going back this time for refund.

Can anyone suggest a reliable source for H8 Cree kits or am I stuck with using halogens.

That's why I didn't want to trust cheapo/ebay ones

I am using Mtec for my rear license lights and no other made / brand are brighter than those.

I'd give crystal white a shout for this since his LEDs are genuine cree.

Sorry side track, I've been using MTEC rear led for 3.5 years?
Just the other week, I got pulled over cause they are too bright!?

Needless to say I've been abroad, had numerous MOTs and drive it DAY/NIGHT all the time daily. That was so random when I got pulled?

This one

At the moment XML are the brightest LEDs in the market.



If you wish to do a open heart surgery on your current leds, then you can try it with this. You can ask the seller that you need them in raw condition.

You'll need 8 of those, good soldering skills, patience and you'll be good to go.

UK. It was at night and he couldn't' of seen who was driving. Cause it came up to me from really far away when it wasn't behind me before or anyone else.

Only that one time having had them for years. And I drive it everywhere.
