M2 Headlight Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Upgraded my headlights to projector lights from Deep Space Lighting.  Great setup, remove the factory ones, install the replacements.  Plug and play, just aim and all done !  The lights are great, talk about clear vision !!

LED headlight bulbs on the M2 do not work well even when you get the indexable kind. Light pattern is very strange due the cheap plastic reflector and spottyness of the LEDs without a proper lens in front of them.

true, bit pricey.  i consider my time to do the conversion so all integrated into the housing and factory plugin, proper parts and misc materials, its worth it.  the difference is outstanding !!

i have had all the parts sitting in my shop to make my own for a year now.  never had a chance to put them together.  in my case, cost me nearly double .....  guess i have plenty of spare parts now.

Grassy, that is great but not an option in the M2.  On FL series, you have a ton of options including DOT/SAE legal sealed LED with reflector lens that is worlds better than halogen.

We upgraded one of our cars to LEDs about a 18 months ago...and went back because they were brighter to look at but didn't illuminate as well however,  my son just bought a new car and his LEDs are amazing. The technology is changing rapidly. LEDs are still in the wild west mode where the consistency and quality vary.

Locally at out 2 truck supply stores, you are looking at almost $ 200 a side for a sealed LED replacement. On line, a bit cheaper .  With halogen, you are around $10 a side.  And I have decent clear fog lights too..

It sounds like LEDs are  worth looking into again...

I tried and finally went to sealed beam halogen. Cheap and effective..  regardless, we try to avoid running at night..

I don't drive at night either.  I try to get off the highway before dark in the RV.
