Thanks kiwi rider for the approval and bump!

I forgot to mention, the LED headlights I bought use a passive heatsink, so there is no noisy cooling fan (and one less moving part). I had originally purchased a newer version with the copper ribbon heatsink which is supposedly much more effective, but was told by the seller there were some QC issues and so I was given these older ones with the solid heatsink instead.

We might be weird but we would kind of like to keep it looking mostly stock, as aerodynamically inefficient as that may be, so I continue the search for the BAU15S LED replacement bulbs. I agree the Asian HID projectors with the halo are utterly badass though.

That looks good. Cut off appears to be close to stock. Could you take a photo in the dark, also at a wall?

I'll see what I can do, will probably have to wait until Saturday night. I park in a lit underground parkade so I need to find a suitable wall somewhere dark...

Here's what I was able to do. Didn't want to stay out too long. First set are low and high beam with camera flash on, next two with camera flash off. This was just auto mode, I'm wondering if I should have used a night mode with a longer exposure or something but my camera should have automatically figured it out...

Once again for reference this is on a CB300F with just the single H4 LED bulb.

Thanks for that! It looks very good, some additional glare but not a whole lot.
