Comparing LEDs with Halogen Headlights

One of the simplest and most cost-effective upgrades to an EcoSport’s headlight would be the replacement of the stock bulb with an LED emitter (some refer to this as “LED bulb” but technically, it is not a “bulb”, but rather, an “emitter”). About a year ago, I’ve upgraded our headlights to an LED, and performed a comparison with the stock halogen bulb.

Clearly, LED emitters illuminate the road far better than stock bulbs. Always install LEDs properly by directing the low beam to the ground, to avoid causing glare to oncoming vehicles.

  1. Hi sir. When you installed the LED lights, wala ba naging error? Any led lamp will work on our eco? Need to replace my stock kse napundi na isang side and madami nag offer pero medyo pricey. I saw some LED lights online (Novsight) and was thinking if I can simply install it by following ur instructions in the video. I hope you can give me some tips. Thank you
