Cheap eBay Led headlights

Hey guys, before I make my write up, I want to get your opinions about cheap eBay led d2s headlight bulbs? These are only $25! I will post my findings and own opinions in my upcoming write up. Edit: to prevent you guys from getting mad at me, don't order these bulbs just yet. They are a bit underpowered and have a bluish greenish tint because of it. I'll have another set coming in soon

I'm excited to see how these look. LEDs would probably look great for the low-beams. As long as they're white, and not annoyingly blue, I think it's worth the $25.

I'm ordering multiple "brands" from different sellers and testing each of them out. I have one that is very oh so pure white, and I have another that is a bit greenish blue. Like an under powered 5000k xenon bulb. I'm ordering one more bulb and will post my findings on them (including temp) in a week or so.

I'm not endorsing ebay sellers or anything but I've ordered enough times to know that all ebay sellers are obsessed with their feedback scores. eBay is super critical about these scores on sellers. I've ordered many stuff that had a minor flaw in them, and instead of returning them, the seller sent me a new one for free. I got to keep both items. Led technology has improved over the years enough for them to be mass produced. The only defects that leds can have is the imperfections of the color.

Haha thanks for the support. The temperatures on the leds shouldn't get too hot as they have their own ball bearing fan, with an overheat protection. I'll be doing heat stress tests during the day in traffic with a little fire extinguisher in my car. Don't mind that run on sentence
