Default Gennsi Projector LED H6054 Headlight review

This is just a quick review of my initial impressions.


Part # GEN-7X6PRO

Utilizing authentic CREE XM-L2 LEDs
3x Projector Lens for perfect beam cut-off
DOT Approved Street Legal
Low beam and High beam in the same light.
Durable Aluminum Shell Body and Heatsink
2042 Lumens Low Beam Per Assembly
3180 Lumens High beam Per Assembly
Input Voltage from 9V-32V DC
Wattage: 32W
Waterproof: IP68
UV Resistant with ultra clear polycarbonate lens
Die-Cast Aluminum Housing for max heat dissipation
Polycarbonate front Lens
Lifetime: Up to 50,000 Hours
Dimensions: 3" (DEPTH) x 7" (WIDTH) x 6" (HEIGHT)
2.8lbs each
Compatible with headlights: H6014 / H6052 / H6054 / 6054
Black Housing as shown
Adult Signature Required for Delivery. This cannot be waived.
Listing is for one lamp. Please buy 2 if you need a pair. The same light can be used in either side of your vehicle.


  • Much Brighter than my Hella E-Codes with Philips Xtreme Power bulbs
  • Sharp Cut Off
  • I would say it has a 5000k color
  • Still need to adjust but plenty enough width
  • DOT approved
  • Looks cool as $h!t.


I need to get better pics of the cut off. The pic of the cutoff on the garage is really close and doesn't do it justice. These lights great so far. I did the circut doctor mod to retain the function of the factory fog lights. I paid $280 for the pair. The price is starting to fall for the LED plug and play setups.

I thought the item should be a 7X5 to replace a H6054

Wow! What a cool headlight option, I love the way they look. Could you explain the 'circuit doctor' mod that you said is needed to keep the factory fog lights?

I didn't do that mod,cause I only use my fog lights when driving with my parking lights on. The lights are so bright they will wash out most fog lights anyway.

This is the Circuit Doctor method to fixing the foglight issue. The problem with the later C4 is that the fog light circuit is grounded through the high beam filament. LED's have no filament as they are nothing more than a "light emitting diode." The circuit doctor method places a small 163 bulb to add a grounding filament.

There are other ways to do this, but to me at this point it was the easiest.

I noticed that pre 90' cars are wired differently... wonder what is required to make these work on my 88'?

You won't have a problem getting them to work. Just plug and play. Not sure about getting the fog lights to work on a pre 90'. If you never use your fog lights not a big deal. I never use mine either but I like to have everything function the way it was originally intended.

It was the fog light issue I was referring to. I'll do some research on it. Thank for sharing about the headlights they look awesome!

Why burn the fog lights for nothing? They don't give me any more range than the low beams even. Not that much light more. In fog, I turn them on and shut down main lights

I don't want to get too off topic for this thread but, if I understand the thread by circuit doctor the 1990-1996 cars had an issue where turning the fog lights on also turned the high beams on which is not ideal for fog...

No mention was made in that thread of 84-89' cars.

My '86 has the fog lights connected directly to ground so there is no issue with HID or LED headlights. I think that changed in 1990 with the redesign of the car.

My '86 has the fog lights grounded directly so it's not an issue for me. I suspect all '84 - '89 cars are the same.

Looks good but after reading the reviews some came DOA or had moisture problems. Sure Amazon will make them right if returned right away. Looking forward to see how they hold up.

I just physically checked on my 91. You can turn on the fog lights and the switch will illuminate. BUT if you turn on the high beams, while the switch is illuminated, the fog lights ARE CANCELLED until the high beams go off.

I did the Euro H4 upgrade on mine, and have this issue. I could never figure it out. Turn on the driving lights, and it activates the high beams, and these are halogen. I like the driving lights on too, because they have a wide pattern, and right in front of the car.

Yes that is what other people seemed to say on the other thread. My car is an 88' with the earlier wiring so I would work differently for me anyway.
