The best budget option for Low/High Beams shared with a DRL

Best for ANY Style Headlight

Kilakila

The next best option for vehicles that have a DRL shared with the high-beams is the Kilakila LED kit. While they are brighter in a low-beam, the high-beam is about the same brightness as a halogen bulb. They won't blow the doors off in terms of brightness, but the benefit is a much longer lasting bulb as your DRL is constantly on, and of course an upgraded color of about 5800k, a nice pure white with a hint of blue. 

BEST FEATURE: Best Budget upgrade with full DRL dimmability

  • 3.1 Star Overall Rating (for Reflector Headlights)
  • -6% Less High-Beam Light in Reflectors,  +82% More Low-Beam Light in Reflectors
  • 5200 Total Lumens/kit (vs 3280 for Halogen)
