I am of the opinion that not all are equal, that the quality varies and reliability is not quite what they make out.
2 Years ago I fitted 1156/1157 led side/tail/brake ligts from Napa.
Nice and bright.
However first failure after less than 15 hours of running.
Second failure less than 40 hrs of running.
50% failure rate.

These are just old fashioned halogen sealed beams. They are as good as
H4 but use as much power. The idea with LED lights is to get at least
the same amount of light as with H4 halogen but using far less power.

> What LED lights? Just the replacements of the H4 bulbs or complete units for e.g. Jeep. I have fitted replacement H4 LED lights bought on eBay direct from China for a song (less than $10 including shipping) and they certainly produce much more lumens than the old H4´s. In my case the light pattern is satisfactory but I know of people who could not adjust the lights properly with some of similar LED bulbsas the position of the actual LED´s were in the wrong place causing blinding of oncoming traffic. So you may have to try out a few brands. The complete units should be OK but do not look the part on a classic car, to put it mildly.
