Nothing but the best or nothing at all - my philosophy about life. And for you clowns you are no more but a pack of whining losers!

The blue lights need to be outlawed.  I think some people are buying them just to irritate other drivers.

These lights are very ineffective as a headlamp from the drivers seat. From the approaching driver they are very blinding and unsafe.

The LEDs are not ready for many applications and may never be a fit for all lighting needs. Who cares about low power in a car where you run off of the alternator and battery anyway? It's not like a building or house where you are trying to save energy. They are VERY expensive to replace and most people don't care for the light output or appearance of them. They burn out and never last as long as they claim they will. If one burns out in an array you have to replace the whole assembly. It will also not pass inspection even though the other LEDs in that array still work. Incandescent bulbs are cheaper, more standard, easier to replace and put out better light for automobiles.

I hate the new headlights.  They are way too bright for many of us that are light sensitive.  They are blinding and cause a distraction to me.  They are worse than someone driving with their highbeams on.  Whoever allowed such bright lights as headlights should know that they are plain rediculous and painful for some.

The upside of LED lights is they give great light and look cool. The downside is they are still ridiculously expensive to repair or replace if something goes wrong. I live in a state where we have to get our cars inspected every year. I had a taillight with 32 LED lights inside the red lens. Two of the LED's burned out, but the other 30 were working fine. The inspection station failed me for burned out light bulbs. The new taillight cost over $500 from Cadillac. That's right....over $500 to pass my safety inspection because 2 out of 32 LED's are not working. I went to a different inspection station where he passed me with no problems, but I'm not sure I like LED's anymore.

I personally find many new headlight designs to be overly complex, and more of a distraction to the appearance of the vehicle rather than a positive design addition.  Not only that, but they are incredibly expensive to replace if one gets knocked out.  Even the sheet metal of many cars is overdone any more; way too many body creases, louvers, scoops, spoilers, low nose pieces to knock off on curbs or dips, etc.  The more they try to make cars look different from each other, the more they look the same.  Just because a computer program can churn out any "imaginative" design you can think of does not mean the result will be a good looking car, in my opinion.  Historically, some of the most beautiful cars in the world were designed without using computers at all.  Designers have gotten lazy.
