Halogen vs HID vs LED
This video is NOT meant to be an endorsement of altering the headlights in your vehicle. It's just meant to be a comparison between the Halogen, HID, and LED bulbs that are available now. That said, I did feel like I got some surprising results from my testing as you'll see in the video. All tests were done using a 2004 Honda Element with Halogen headlight housings. The distances were constant as we kept the vehicle in the same spot for all testing with the engine running. Also, I did not aim or alter the headlights in any way. I only installed the different bulbs for each test.
