Where did find the morimoto cheaper ?! It's like 130 in Amazon and the OPT7 is 89 plus it has ton of good reviews.Morimoto 2Strokes have significantly more output (in lumens) than those for $30 less too. You have to get a little creative with applying the supplied dust cap extenders onto your OEM dust caps but I came up with a solution that has worked well.
That's my (personal experience) $.02.
nice do u have any photos of the dust cover mod?!?I've had the opt7 low beams for about a year now. They are awesome and haven't given me any issues plus they fit under the factory dust cover. You will need to put a couple holes in the dust cover for the fan ventilation but that's it.
Whats the output like? I will eventually get my hands on a set of Diode Dynamics SL1's to try which will fit without problems also.Thank God, no more "HGTV-solution" dust caps!! The lighting pattern is reminiscent of the Morimoto HIDs I put in my 2015 Accent Sport and far superior to the Putco's I was using after finnicky 2Strokes.
Glad I am not the only one with some headlights issues specifically with LED's. I received a set to test and they would work fine sometimes and others start to flicker and even strobe. I have a feeling its all related. I just received an email that my SL1's are on the way so fingers crossed!The output is at least as good as the Morimoto HIDs I had in my 2015 Accent Sport which is to say excellent. There are no dead spots, clean cut off and wide dispersion. The only problem I've had with the Headlight Experts bulbs is that I've had two separate bulbs begin to randomly go off/on on their own. This was also the issue I had with one of the two Morimoto 2Strokes except the one would always re-illuminate if I toggled the headlight stalk off then on again. The HE bulbs would not react the same to the stalk action but the one bulb always turned back on eventually. Their Customer Service took these back and sent me replacements without issue. I eventually purchased another N.I.B. set of HE H11's on eBay for $10 and one of those bulbs has been as rock solid as one from my original set so I no longer experience the random outages and I've got two spares. I also found a set of HE H7's on eBay that were N.I.B. but were a prior passively-cooled design so I swapped those into the low beam position in my Miata and took the actively-cooled HE H7s that were in there for high beam/DRL duty in the E-GT (without modification to the OE dust caps nor fitment issue). The high beams on the dark country roads of west Tennessee I commute weekly on is absolutely phenomenal. To be clear, the two actively-cooled HE sets I've had in the Miata never experienced any random outages and the performance has been excellent and remain that way with the one set being swapped with the passively-cooled low beams (which don't sit behind dust caps on the Mazda, they're exposed to the engine bay).
I firmly believe there is something about the E-GT's electrical headlight signal that is potentially adverse to certain LED bulbs that yields the random outages and I suspect I'm not the only one that has experienced this.
At my recommendation, a coworker tried a set of HE H11B's in his 2014 Veloster Turbo and he experienced the random outage scenario with both bulbs and occasionally simultaneously. He returned them without issue, got his refund and purchased some other brand that as far as I know have been flawless in operation and more than satisfactory in illumination performance.
https://www.diodedynamics.com/h11-sl1-led-headlight-pair.htmlWhat is the warranty and cost on the SL1's? The HE LED's (which I paid $89/set initially) are the only ones I've found that are lifetime and that appealed to me since I will likely move them from car-to-car over time at least until some other superior technology comes along.
