Default LED headlights - 93 C4

I know this has been beaten to death - but the technology is emerging and I need to get some recommendations.

I dont like the ‘spider eye’ look of some of the LED headlights. It looks ricey to me, but I will put up with it if there is a benefit in down road lighting

I like the look of the GE nighthawk style LED headlamps. But there are lower priced options.

whats everyone recommend ?

I have my current headlights wired with relays and heavy 10 gauge wire / daniel stern bosch e spec 100/130w bulbs. So it provides amazing lighting but a heavy amp draw

looking for similar lighting performance w/o the amp draw

I installed these instead of spending the same amount for 1 seal beam headlight:

I'm happy with them and they are very bright.

Is that significantly better than the "tried and true" stock bulb? You are still running incandescent yellow lights. Not sure about you but while the bulbs might not be brighter, it definitely does make it easier with a whiter light than yellow, at least to me.

I did the Daniel Sterns upgrade to my 87 with Ciebe lamps. As of now I don't think anything will get you better lighting. Those 100/130w bulbs are like the sun. I know they draw some current. I check mine on low beam once; 18amps.

Yes and they might also make the cop wonder if you're driving around with the brights on and stop you for a chat. That was my problem with it while I was driving my other car.
